Just as our bodies age over time, so does our brain. Inevitably, functional decline comes along with the brain aging process. This can be a scary thought for many of us as we approach our later years.

It’s that simple! Incorporating exercise into your daily routine improves brain function so you can stay sharp as you age. And, we’re not even talking extreme levels of exercise.

To summarize: It’s smart to exercise. Literally.
