This is your brain on exercise…

Exercise is Food for Thought

“Exercise is the single best thing you can do for your brain in terms of mood, memory, and learning,” says Harvard Medical School psychiatrist John Ratey, author of the book, Spark: The Revolutionary New Science of Exercise and the Brain. Often we treat the body and mind as two separate entities when in fact we should consider them as one. To keep our brains thinking and working at optimal levels we need to exercise the body, which at the same time, exercises the mind. Both cardiovascular and cognitive exercises are important if you want to strengthen the brain “muscle.” The BeyondBarre workout gets you plenty of both. Our GlideBoard treats your brain to a super cardio workout. And our many workouts that involve balancing poses or hand-eye coordination are excellent cognitive exercises.     brain-health]]>
