Exercise makes us healthier, fitter and more energetic and that’s a known fact to many. And it also makes us smarter. According to a study conducted by the Journal of Clinical and Diagnostic Research, a single 30 minute exercise session of moderate-intensity can improve memory, planning and reasoning and shorten the amount of time needed to complete cognitive tests. Physical exercise is helpful for maintaining a fit mental state too.
The benefits of exercise should be emphasised more now, given that schools are cutting down on physical education classes. Children are becoming more and more confined to the household, which is an unhealthy lifestyle choice. Stress has increasingly become a part of our lives, with 77% percent people in the US alone who experience physical symptoms caused by stress. Activities like walking improve memory, calm the mind and improve cognitive functioning. This infographic shows us how exercise is beneficial for our body and makes us smarter.
