Physical Activites Ties to Mental Wellness

What to stay sharp as you age?  Looking for ways to boost your mental prowess?  Keep physically active!

That’s right!  Physically activity helps boost and retain your brain power, now and as you age.

People who stayed physically active into old age tended to have larger brains than those who did not exercise in the study, published today in the journal Neurology.

The brain typically shrinks in late adulthood, and this shrinkage is believed to play a role in age-related memory decline.

The new research is the latest to suggest that exercise is good for the brain as well as the body. via http://www.webmd.com/healthy-aging/news/20121022/exercise-protects-aging-brains-better
