Physical Activity Boosts Brain Health
Health and Fitness from Pivot Point
The CDC is promoting regular physical activity, saying it is good for your heart, muscles, bones and brain.
Physical activity can help you think, learn, problem-solve, and enjoy an emotional balance. It can also improve memory and reduce anxiety or depression.
Regular physical activity can also reduce your risk of cognitive decline, including dementia. Inactive adults are at risk compared to those who are active says one study that found that cognitive decline is almost twice as common among the inactive group.
When it comes to sleeping and feeling better, regular physical activity can help as well as reduce the risk of some common cancers, and add years to your life.
No matter your age or fitness level, any amount of physical activity can help. To get started with physical activities that can benefit your health or more information, visit Pivot Point Fitness.
