I recently read the book "Exercise Brain.
Anders Hansen, author of "The Exercise Brain."
Here is a book that makes you want to run without waiting to read it. I mean, it even made me think that I am in trouble if I don't exercise.
Fortunately, I usually walk or ride a bicycle instead of using a car as much as possible, so I think I'm still in good shape, but I still don't get enough exercise as far as this book is concerned. I have felt many physical and mental changes as I have aged, but after reading this book, I realized that I was not exercising enough! The scales fell from my eyes.
Now, let me introduce the contents of the book.
- Increased stress, i.e., higher blood levels of cortisol, interferes with the brain's ability to transmit information, whereas exercise conversely enhances this function.
- Stress impairs the brain's ability to change (plasticity), while exercise enhances it.
- Increased stress puts a brake on the mechanism that converts short-term memory (memories of minutes to hours) into long-term memory, but exercise promotes the opposite effect.
- Exercise should be done in the morning.
- Running for 30-40 minutes three times a week.
- Let's keep that activity going for at least three weeks.
- The hippocampus is the part of the body that benefits most from physical activity
- Books on "brain training" don't make you smarter.
- Even a single exercise lasting only four minutes (this is not an optical illusion, don't worry) improved concentration and attention span, and it was also proven that a 10-year-old child could tackle things without distraction.
- In order for children to reach their full potential, they must be physically active.
- Whether at school or at work, the brain works more efficiently when working standing up.
- Biologically, our brains and bodies are still in the savannah.
- The reason why many modern people are sick in mind and body is the contradiction between "brain" and "our environment", there.
That is all.
I am sure this book will help you in your life.Please read it.
