It’s not possible to be unaware of the benefits of exercise on the body. But it may be less commonly understood that physical exercise is vital for brain health and overall wellness. Some doctors have even likened exercise to ADHD medication because of its effects on the brain.
I’d like to point you to a recent article from positivepsychology.com that explores many aspects of the benefits of exercise. It’s a rather long article, but worth the reading. There are several videos throughout that you may also find interesting. The article is called “10 Neurological Benefits of Exercise,” and it is by Juliette Tocino-Smith. You can find it here.
