Have you ever wondered whether exercise could do more than just help you stay in shape or improve your physical health? Research shows that exercising for as little as 20 minutes per day can actually boost mental performance. More specifically, engaging in an aerobic exercise such as cycling, swimming, or walking, at a moderate intensity followed by a cool down session has been shown to improve cognitive functions.
Concentration, memory and functional capacity which, refers to the ability to effectively complete activities, can all improve with exercise.
