😎 Today’s Happy Brain ~ Exercise Helps the Waistline and the Brain

Can lifestyle practices boost brain health?

Answer: Definitely.

Exercise has a very positive impact on brain health. A 2011 studyOpens in a new window found that for older adults, aerobic training increases the size of the anterior hippocampus, leading to improvements in spatial memory. Conversely, older adults who do not engage in aerobic activity experience a reduction in the size of the hippocampus (the memory center of the brain) at a rate of 1% atrophy per year.
