Enjoy Being Active

There is strong evidence that suggests regular physical activity is associated with better brain function. Exercise gives our brains a healthy boost. Physical activity increases blood flow to the brain, stimulates the growth of brain cells and the connections between them, and is associated with larger brain volume.

Being physically active reduces the risk of high blood pressure, obesity, diabetes and high cholesterol, which are associated with an increased risk of cognitive decline and dementia. Once you get into the habit of exercising you'll wonder why you waited so long - exercise makes us feel good and is a great activity to enjoy with friends and family.

'Being physically active stimulates your brain and strengthens your heart. Move, go outside, take a new step. Because you're vital. Keep Your Life In Mind.'
