Exercise Reduces Risk of Disease

Improving your fitness reduces the risk of dementia and Alzheimer disease.
Exercise improves white matter in the brain which is highly correlated with improved brain function. White matter is comprised of millions of bundles of nerve fibers used by neurons to communicate across the brain.
If you find yourself out of breath throughout the day during simple tasks like going up the stairs, it's time to get into shape otherwise you are setting yourself up for reduced brain function!
-run up stairs at your house instead of walking
-take a fast lap around the grocery store before shopping
-Make physical work park of your regular routine: Home improvement projects, gardening, carrying wood or anything that makes you use your muscles.
