How to Keep a Healthy Brain, part 1

How to Keep a Healthy Brain
Part 1: Exercise

Experts worldwide are jumping on the brain bandwagon, eager to teach you about the neuroscience of happiness, effective coping and peak performance.

It’s an exciting time. As knowledge workers in the 21st century, our success depends on having a healthy, functioning brain.

But if you’ve read a few of the latest articles on brain science, you may find yourself scratching your head, wondering what you should be doing differently.

Science can now answer this question, having made incredible strides over the last 5 years. While many previously thought our brains steadily deteriorated after age 25, this turns out to be false.

While you cannot stop aging, you can prolong your brain’s healthy function. The No. 1 method is to create a healthy environment for the brain to thrive.  It turns out that the same things that keep yourheart healthy, keep your brain in good shape.

This article will discuss how physical activity influences the health of your brain, followed by future articles on the other three domains.

Your Body, Your Brain

Brain health depends on a regular schedule of aerobic exercise. Researchers have not yet established a definitive guideline, but most agree on 30 to 45 minutes, at least three to four times a week, to elevate heart rate.

If you’re exercise-phobic, disabled or just plain stubborn, it will be more difficult to maintain a healthy brain in the long run.

Regardless of your current exercise habits, you’ll need to accept this irrefutable fact: Your brain will deteriorate with age unless you engage in some form of regular exercise or sport.
