Walk to stay sharp

Walking each day may sharpen your memory and help you juggle mental tasks. In one study reviewed by the National Institutes of Health, MRI was used to track the brain activity of healthy adults age 58-78. After a six-month walking program, brain function, attention span, and focus on goals improved. Light exercise increases blood-flow to the brain and jump starts hormones necessary for nerve cell production. So boost your brain and stay sharp by walking each day.
