The brain, mind and cognitive function is fascinating to me. I am a geek about anything that can increase my memory, improve the speed of my mind, improve my creativity, imagination or cognitive function in any way. Why? I want to be extremely smart! I want to have the ability to learn a lot of information and retain it because learning, especially about health, wellness, green living and the mind-body-spirit connection is very important to me.
I recently read a book called Spark: The Revolutionary New Science Of Exercise And The Brain by John Ratey, MD.
In his book John discusses how exercise improves many functions of our health including:
* Coping With Stress
* Balancing The Brain
* Builds A Bigger Brain
* Balances Hormones
* Grows The Hippocampus
* Improves Circulation
* Boosts Heart Rate
* And More!
I created a pretty in depth video sharing some awesome insights that I got from the book here:
In the future I’m hoping to interview John on the Healthy Wild And Free Podcast, so subscribe to the newsletter and follow the facebook page for updates.
Please leave your comments below and share this with your friends or family if you think they can benefit from it.
Have an amazing day! Pura Vida!
