Boost brain connectivity with just 10 minutes of yoga or walking.
No time to do a run after work, or are you not one of those "gym people"? No worries, new research shows that even a little light and easy physical activity is still good for your health, especially the memory.
According to a recent study from the University of California, even as little as 10 minutes of a simple physical activity – like walking, yoga, or tai chi - can boost brain connectivity and help the brain tell the difference between similar memories. Researchers found the volunteers who had exercised were better at remembering during a memory task than those who didn’t exercise. Most work places require you to take a 10 minutes break, so hey, you might as well get walking.
