Fascinating new research shows that your brain is capable of rejuvenating and regenerating itself throughout your life. According to John J. Ratey, a psychiatrist who wrote the book Spark: The Revolutionary New Science of Exercise and the Brain, there’s overwhelming evidence that exercise produces large cognitive gains and helps fight dementia. Exercise also helps to prevent age related shrinkage of the brain. Avoiding sitting and keeping moving is the secret to aging well and Nordic Walking, with the added bonus of being sociable, is the perfect option. So next time you are out Nordic Walking remember you are not just training your body but also training your brain!
