New findings from biology and education research show that regular exercise benefits the brain in numerous ways.

Everyone knows that regular exercise is good for the body, but training regularly is also one of the most effective ways to improve your mental health. Not only can regular workouts improve attention span, memory, and learning, they can also reduce stress and the effects of attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder and even delay cognitive decline in old age. In short, staying in shape can make you smarter. Aerobic exercise pumps more blood throughout the body, including to the brain. More blood means more oxygen and, therefore, better-nourished brain tissue. Simply put, exercise benefits the brain, which leads to having a Fit Mind.
