Brain Circuts Well Served With A Walk — Dave’s Diary

We are often told to walk a mile in another person’s shoes in order to get their perspective but it seems walking a mile just might make you smarter.  The health benefits of walking are well known as being good for your heart, lungs, muscles, blood pressure and bones but.  a daily dose of a 30 minute brisk walk benefits the brain as well.

Researchers from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have shown that walking not only builds up your muscles, but also builds up the connectivity between brain circuits. This is important because as we age, the connectivity between those circuits diminishes.

But aerobic exercise, such as brisk walking, helps revive those flagging brain circuits.  So we’ll see you on the track!
