Why does exercise help to improve your memory?

Dr. Verna R. Porter, M.D a neurologist at Providence Saint John’s Health Center states that exercise stimulates the brain cells and encourages them to multiply. Exercise reduces or prevents cognitive deterioration, which could lead to Alzheimer’s or dementia. Exercise at least three times per week for a healthy and efficient brain.

Brain Training

Brain training games are like mental exercise, the more you do them, the stronger your brain becomes. I would spend 30 to 40 minutes a day doing brain training exercises, and I certainly noticed a major difference after two to three weeks.

The Results

When I started the challenge, I found it difficult to memorize a list of 30 words, I would get to 18 or 19 and I would just give up. By the end of the challenge, I was memorizing 40 or 50 words with ease. I am not one hundred percent certain if the dark leafy green vegetables, the exercise and the brain trained played a major role in the significant improvement of my memory but I can say that I felt more energetic, my concentration levels and productivity drastically improved and all in all, I felt happier, more optimistic and less sluggish on most days.

To Conclude

Whether you are studying, hustling online or working long hours at a job, take care of yourself. One of the things that often gets neglected when you are working hard to achieve a goal is self-care. When I was studying at university, I would wake up at 3 am, study, go to lectures, come home and study some more. My diet was terrible, my workout regime consisted of walking five minutes down the road to the lecture hall, and five minutes back.
