So how exactly does exercise benefit your brain? It has been proven in studies that exercise  builds a resistance to  physical shrinkage and enhances cognitive flexibility. The brain is also a muscle and it needs to be stretched and worked to grow just like every other muscle. So what exactly does that tell you? A jog around your neighborhood or a walk to the park benefits more than your leg muscles. People may not work out because they do not think they need to lose weight but there are more reasons than weight loss to exercise. It does make your strength grow and endurance increase but to more than just your physical body, it mentally strengthens you.

It is already recommended to work out once a day to keep yourself in shape and healthy but now there is another reason, keep your mind strong and healthy. Your brain can always develop and grow more. You should want to continue to grow in every way possible. Humans love development and growth. The more you practice and exercise mentally and health wise, the better you will do in various aspects.

People tend to say that they do not have time to exercise but really think about it. Maybe you can take time off just sitting on the couch, watching t.v., and so on. Doing thirty minutes at least every day is very easy to accomplish and worthwhile. Your heart gets stronger and so does your brain.

We want to accomplish so much and pursue so much that we should think of all the various things we can do to get one step ahead in accomplishing everything. We should take every chance we have to grow as people and become stronger and better. Our mind is fragile and is the core of every action we do so why would we not want to make it stronger and better? Once  you have increased the stamina and strength of your brain, you will achieve more and do better. Practice makes perfect and effort it always need it. Do a quick jog and you will feel yourself at ease and calm down about some of your troubles. It also helps you focus better because you have given time for your whole body to cool off and look at the bigger picture. Health is crucial whether it is mental or physical and for us to pursue all of our educational dreams, we must take care of ourselves and focus on each goal one step at a time.
