Guess Which One is Best?

The hippocampus in our brains is responsible for our learning, our emotions and our memory. As we age, we get concerned about its health. 

We’ve known exercise is good for the brain, because studies have shown that exercise pumps blood throughout our gray matter, improving mood and thinking.

But which type of exercise is best?

Aerobics?

It’s sustained aerobics! 

According to Mindful.com, an experiment on lab mice in Finland showed definitively, that sustained aerobics produced the most neurogenesis.

Weightlifting is great for your muscles (and aging). High intensity interval training is excellent for calorie burning and aesthetics. But aerobic exercise is excellent for the brain. Whatever your fitness routine, don’t skip your spinning (or slimnastics or dancing or kickboxing classes)!

What is your favorite aerobic activity?
