Research shows that the fitness of your body is related to the fitness of your brain. Physical exercise is like "Miracle Grow" for the brain. It activates the release of "BDNF" which is a neuron growth factor that improves cognition, stimulates us to keep us alert, lowers stress, improves memory and puts students in the optimal learning environment. Exercise feeds the brain glucose (energy) and oxygen, which helps to build better connections between the neurons that help the brain to read, write and compute. Scientists have discovered that exercise has the most effect on the Hippocampus, which is the portion of the brain that helps short term memory convert new information into long term memory... which is very important for learning!
