While many people do not realize it, being physically active has actually been proven to enhance your cognitive fitness. Whether you’re going for a brisk walk around the neighbourhood or playing in a highly competitive soccer game, the activities you are taking part in physically are helping build not only your body but your brain also.
The best thing you can do to help preserve your cognitive health long term is to work out your body and your mind through various physical exercise programs as well as mentally and socially stimulating activities.
