Change Your Body, Change Your Mind, Change Your Life.


 


Now more than ever it is important that we embrace wellness. Routine exercise is the first step. When we exercise we create new neurons (neurogenesis), create new, (and reorganize) connections (neuroplasticity), and release neurotransmitters that improve brain function (neurochemistry). According to Juliette Tocino-Smith, MSc.* ten neurological benefits of exercise are:

  • Decreased stress

  • Decreased social anxiety

  • Improved processing of emotions

  • Prevention of neurological conditions

  • Euphoria (short-term)

  • Increased energy, focus and attention

  • Hinderance to the aging process

  • Improved memory

  • Improved blood circulation

  • Decreased ‘brain fog’

While working on your physical self you are also improving your mental well being. Take into account the other things in the above diagram, like diet, nutrition and relaxation (meditation) and you are on a well paved wellness path for 2022.
