Exercise Benefits The Brain

Any kind of exercise, be it aerobic, walking or Yoga, changes the brain's composition, structure and the way it operates. The changes that happen to the brain:

  • Brain waves increase
  • Increased sensitivity to surroundings
  • The building of neurotransmitters and increased neuro-connections
  • De-ageing.

More Sensitive To The World

Exercise makes our senses sharper and clearer, and we are more perceptive and have better sensitivity to our surroundings.

Neuron Magic

After exercise, the brain actually builds neurotransmitters, which are essential to its functioning, and optimal operation.

It also forms more neuron connections, helping us think and work better.

Brain Waves increasing

The brain's electric impulses change, and the Beta waves increase during and after exercise, putting it in a better, more alert state.

The Brain is Young again

The structural changes in the brain after exercise make it more agile, young and energetic. This is because, after regular exercise, it starts to promote the body's growth cells, providing us with essential nutrients.

Swimming provides unique benefits

Research shows that swimming regularly may have several health benefits.

Swimming can improve your memory, cognitive function, mood, and strengthen your immune system. It can also help to mend damage from stress and create new neural connections in the brain.

Neuroscientists have long known that aerobic exercises, like walking, swimming, running, or biking, are largely beneficial for brain health.

In a new study from Colorado State University, researchers found that regions of the brain most vulnerable to aging were also the regions that benefitted most from aerobic exercise.
