1. Exercise has a wide range of benefits, but being physically fit is vital to your brain’s current and future health. 

Your mind can benefit from exercise in the same capacity that your body can. Studies have shown that regular exercise can aid in decreasing anxiety and depression. There are no rules or guidelines to which exercise you should partake in or for how long. Choose an activity that interests you and spend a designated time per day, maybe 30 minutes, burning some physical energy. Exercising has many benefits for your health. It causes the release of endorphins, which are the feel-good hormones in your body. When your physical body feels sharp, your mind will follow.

Regular exercise can help you concentrate and feel mentally competent for any task thrown your way. It also gives you a set amount of time to focus on exercising rather than the cluster of thoughts that may be racing in your mind. A walk or run will help your body feel refreshed and ready to tackle what the rest of the day presents. Exercise leads to the formation of new brain cells called neurogenesis. Those who exercise consistently are not only able to declutter their minds but are also able to better focus on each task.
