Physical exercise is good for your health and body; but that doesn’t stop there. In fact, regular exercising also has mental benefits as it can help you improve your memory. A study revealed that people who took aerobics for a year had an enlarged hippocampus – a component of the brain that is responsible for short and long-term memory and learning, by an average of 2%. This is in contrast to those who attended stretching classes whose hippocampus decreased in size by an average of 1.42%.
If you think about it this actually makes a lot of sense. By exercising your body you help to improve the blood flow to your brain that boosts your memory! This video from BrainCraft explains in scientific terms what exercising can do to your brain and how it can improve your memory skills.
