There are programs for brain training so you could improve memory, attention span and focus. Surely you’ve seen programs and websites that are designed to improve the cognitive abilities and you may have tried one.
These programs may be effective but some studies have shown that physical exercise rather than mental, can significantly improve human cognitive abilities, from childhood to old age.
Among other things, physical exercise is proved to be positive for improving the concentration in children, the memory in older people and it also slows down the reduction in brain size that occurs naturally with age.
In fact, exercising causes creation of a protein that helps in the development of existing brain cells and creating new ones.
You may wonder about how much exercise is needed for your brain? Science cannot agree on this, but new research shows that a little exercise can bring positive results. Even walking 20-25 minutes a week can be good for your brain.
