And this is just 45 minutes of exercise for 3-4 days a week.

Totally doable to squeeze into your schedule.

So get up off the couch and get on track with regular exercise.

1. Better Your Intelligence

Because of the numerous benefits of physical fitness for not just your body but your brain, exercise can better your intelligence.

It is important to exercise on a regular basis to experience these benefits.

You should also keep a clear mind when exercising allowing the brain to roam and read or perform other mind activities after your workouts!

2. Improve Concentration

Have you ever noticed after a workout you have more focus?

That is because of the benefits of exercise providing a relief from stress and a post effect of calming you.

You will then concentrate better and just feel more relaxed.2

So what are you waiting for, challenge yourself for a 45 minute fitness session now!

3. Boost Your Memory

The part of the brain that responds well to aerobic exercise is the hippocampus, which controls memory.

And across the board, among all age groups there are major benefits of increased memory from regular aerobic exercise.

This explains how I aced many tests from studying while listening to recorded lectures on my runs.

Studies have shown that memory is greater developed because of regular sweat sessions.

Just do not push too hard because high intensity exercise can have a counter effect and actually add stress.

Walk it out, jog it out or whatever else you desire!
