Your Brain Loves it When You Move!

When you exercise, you also release serotonin, which improves your mood!

Endorphins get released when you exercise, which dulls the sensation of pain, especially for those who suffer with arthritis.

During and after exercise, dopamine is released, which improves motivation, focus and learning ability.

Norepinephrine is also released during and after exercise, which improves perception and your attention span.

The brain’s learning and memory part, the hippocampus, grows in size with regular exercise.

Exercise also helps your hormones regulate better, providing mental clarity and repairing the neurons in the brain from degeneration.

We don’t know about you but we want to stay sharp as well as staying fit as we age so we encourage you to make exercise a daily part of your lifestyle.  We would love to help you get started!
