There’s something you could be doing RIGHT NOW…
That might just save your BRAIN later in life.
More specifically, your cognition AND your memory.
Who wouldn’t want to reap those benefits?
Luckily, for me, I’m already doing what this study suggests.
But… are YOU?
Big brain benefits
A new study found that those who simply exercised—to any extent—in adulthood had significantly higher cognitive scores later in life, compared to inactive peers.
Researchers analyzed more than 1,400 participants to reach this conclusion. In fact, they evaluated subjects’ activity levels at ages 36, 43, 60, and 69.
They wanted to know how often each participant was active per month—and if they engaged in an exercise routine or other various activities, like badminton, swimming, yoga, dancing, walking, or more.
When the participants turned 69, their cognitive performance was tested using a tool that measures attention and orientation, verbal fluency, memory, language, and visuospatial function.
Surprisingly, only 11 percent of participants were physically inactive at all five time points. But results linked that inactivity to lower cognitive performance, verbal memory, and processing speed at age 69.
Meanwhile, those who moved to any extent—even just once a month during one of the time periods—BOOSTED their brain health at a later age.
It’s never too late
The good news here is this…
Even those who only started being active in their 50s or 60s still had higher cognitive scores at age 70, compared to same-aged, inactive peers.
Meaning it’s never too late to start!
After all, you may just improve your cognition and memory for YEARS to come.
If this isn’t enough to change your inactivity routine… at any age… then I don’t know what more will.
As for me, I walk over 20,000 steps daily. And I participate in cycling classes called Soul Cycle as often as my schedule allows.
What will you do?
And remember, this study highlights the benefits of simply moving your body. It doesn’t have to be a grueling exercise routine—just find something that’s enjoyable to you.
Start dancing, gardening, jogging, swimming… literally anything.
