Did you know how powerful movement is in elevating cognitive function?
Here are just a few reasons to keep moving:
1. Enhanced cerebral blood flow
2. Elevated BDNF (brain derived neurotrophic factor). This fabulous chemical increases neurons and the connections between them (neurogenesis and synaptogenesis ) .
3. Heightened integration of regions of the brain, elevating not only cognition, but also well being . Dr Dan Siegel’s work proves the power of healing the mind and mental imbalances by integrating dissociated regions of the brain.
Add a conscious focus on alignment, muscle activation and technique, and increase these benefits exponentially! It’s wonderful to see the power of movement being recognized in contemporary medicine protocols, including 30-60 mins per day, 4-6 days per week, in Dr Dale Bredesen’s revolutionary work to prevent and reverse cognitive decline. His bestselling book, The End of Alzheimer’s, outlines his RECODE protocol, and is highly recommended.
Move your body, empower your brain. Here’s to living with vitality!
Best to all,
