Is walking part of your regular routine?
If it is, then not only are you benefiting your waistline, you are doing your brain and memory a favor. There is mounting evidence that regular walking benefits the brain health of adults.
Now that it’s finally starting to warm up and you’ve got your freezer loaded with Personal Trainer Food, you may be thinking about dragging yourself to the gym. But if you’re into building simple routines like we are, walking has its own benefits, especially where memory is concerned.
In a study done at the University of British Columbia, researchers found that regular walking appears to boost the size of the hippocampus, the brain area involved in verbal memory and learning. Resistance training, balance and muscle toning exercises did not have the same results.
This is yet another outstanding benefit to walking, and a huge reason why our Personal Trainer Food employees all walk at least 20 minutes a day.
So get out there and get moving!
