Exercise for the Brain

“The brain is much more like the heart than we thought … They find that exercise increases the ability of the brain to produce new baby brain cells, which nobody thought was possible, anyhow, as an adult, until a few years ago.”

Barbara Strauch, author of The Secret Life of the Grown-Up Brain

Kai Chi Do rejuvenates your brain.  Yup – exercise produces brain cells.   Healthy, sweet, new brain cells.  Neurogenesis.  It wasn’t too long ago that the medical community thought that wasn’t even possible.

So what could you do with a few more healthy brain cells?

How about:

  • Improve your memory.
  • Improve your attention and concentration.
  • Manage stress easier.
  • Learn quicker.
  • See the humor in things.
  • Fall in love.
  • Problem solve.
  • Be original.  Be wildly, blessedly creative.  Think a thought that’s never been thought before.
  • Sleep better.
  • Focus.
  • See patterns and trends hiding in plain sight.
  • Anticipate.
  • Make insightful decisions.
  • Speed your reaction time.
  • Find the right words.
  • Be alert.
  • Think clearly.
  • Feel more positive (yup, your brain affects your mood).
  • See the big picture.
  • Find your keys.
  • Coordinate your thoughts and actions.

So that’s a good thing!

We can regenerate ourselves.  What would you do with some healthy new brain cells?
