Movement can help to:
That's quite the list!
Specifically research has found that moving increases the strength of the hippocampus which is the area of the brain responsible for long term memory making it integral in staving off Alzheimer's. It also causes blood vessels to grow throughout the brain improving performance.
Now, while moving is beneficial let's not contain it to the gym.
Getting up regularly from your desk will help keep your brain stimulated throughout the day at the same time keep your joints limber. It's just that necessary. Walking is also beneficial-a good 30 minutes a day at a brisk pace (arms swinging) will keep your brain sharp and your back limber. Kettlebell training is an excellent way to improve your movement vocabulary in a way that is natural to your bodies' language and does not take hours out of your day to complete-a simple 20 minute session of turkish get ups and kettlebell swings will cover all of your strength and endurance needs.
So, will you put improving your life at the top of your to-do list?
