Exercise spurs the development of new nerve cells and increases the connections between brain cells. This results in brains that are more efficient, plastic, and adaptive, which translates into better performance.
Exercising in the morning before going to work not only spikes brain activity and prepares you for mental stresses for the rest of the day, but also increases retention of new information and better reaction to complex situations.

Exposure to even a few days of stress compromises the effectiveness of neurons in the hippocampus—an important brain area responsible for reasoning and memory. #Flordis #KeenMind
