Improving Your Mind Brain Health When You Get Physically Fit

We all know that we could use some more exercise. As a society, we are entirely too sedentary, spending a lot of time watching TV, playing video games and surfing the web - and far too little engaged in physical activity. This kind of lifestyle leads to obesity and low energy levels. We all are aware of this - but what you may not know is that low levels of physical activity means reduced cognitive abilities as well! As you get older, the difference becomes more and more apparent.

When you're physically active, your circulation is improved and with it, cognitive function. When you exerciseregularly, you develop your entire circulatory system, including cerebral vessels. This is believed to be a large part of why exercise is beneficial to your brain.

One of the very best forms of exercise for improving your cognitive abilities is yoga. Yoga requires concentration as well as physical activity. It can be challenging at first, but don't get discouraged. You'll become better with practice and you will be able to move on to more advanced schools of yoga to get even greater cognitive benefits.

It may be news to you that about 20% of your energy is used by your brain - and just like any other part of you, it gets stronger with exercise. If you have trouble coping with stress and your responsibilities day to day, then you need to get more exercise; this will keep your body and mind in peak condition.

A lot of us have the best intentions when it comes to exercise, but we tend to put it off in favor of one thing after another until the day is done and we have no time left. We do this to ourselves; but once you do start getting regular exercise and start to feel the mental benefits, you'll make exercise one of your top priorities.

Rather than helping you to come up with reasons to dodge exercise, you'll start to find reasons to get more exercise. The results you'll see will keep you motivated and make you proud of what you've achieved. Sooner than you may think, getting regular exercise becomes a habit and you'll put off the less important things in life instead. Your brain will release more of the chemicals which produce a sense of well bring so you'll feel better on every level.

Regardless of your age or what level of physical activity you get now, you can still make some positive changes. Begin by exercising 15 minutes every second day and increase this by 5 minutes a week until you're at 30 minutes of exercise every other day. Once you've done this, promise yourself you'll make those 30 minutes a daily routine. Working up this makes it less of a challenge and makes you less likely to get discouraged.

We all have busy lives, but anyone can make 30 minutes a day to get some exercise. Try in the early morning so you won't make excuses about being too tired to exercise at night. You'll start the day off feeling great - you'll have already made some progress and done something good for yourself. There are plenty of different exercises out there, so you can do something which you like doing.
