We’ve all heard people calling your brain a “muscle” and saying it needs to get worked out regularly, but they mean a mental workout. However, did you know that physical exercise increases brain performance as well? If you’d like to know about some of the benefits you can reap, we’ll go over them here.
Increase Blood Flow:
Your brain requires oxygen to function. Exercise can greatly increase blood flow, which delivers more oxygen to your brain. This allows your brain to function better similar to the way you do when you eat a healthy diet.
The way you feel depends (on a basic level) on 3 different chemicals: serotonin, dopamine, and endorphins. Keep these chemicals regulated with regular exercise, and watch your mood improve.
Meet Your Goals:
At the University of Iowa, researchers found that people who met their exercise goals tended to meet their other goals as well. They attributed this to the momentum of success.
