Curious Saturday: The Brain Changing Effects of Exercise
According to Neuroscientist, Wendy Suzuki, exercising not only boosts your mood and memory, but it protects your brain against neurodegenerative diseases.
“As a curious neuroscientist, I went to the literature to see what I could find about what we knew about the effects of exercise on the brain. And what I found was an exciting and a growing literature that was essentially showing everything that I noticed in myself. Better mood, better energy, better memory, better attention. And the more I learned, the more I realized how powerful exercise was. Now, after several years of really focusing on this question, I’ve come to the following conclusion: that exercise is the most transformative thing that you can do for your brain today.”
