When you exercise, your body gets healthy in more ways than one. While you may be running miles to fit into that little black dress, your exercise can also help improve your learning and mental performance, help prevent (and treat) dementia, Alzheimer’s, and brain aging, reduce stress and anxiety, and even help your brain maintain and regenerate cells.
Exercise is beneficial for every age. Undergrads discovered faster reaction times and a host of new vocabulary words – by running just 30 minutes a day.
