It’s an election year – so at some point, you’re BOUND to hear that age-old question: Are you better off today than you were four years ago?
Well, friend, I’m absolutely NOT here to talk politics.
You’re gonna get enough of that everywhere else!
But I do want to talk about what these past four years have meant for your health – and especially what’s happened to your brain in that time.
Because there’s one thing that’s true no matter who’s in power or which party’s in control of Congress.
We’re ALL getting older, and no part of the body can feel the impact of four years quite like your brain.
But not anymore – because today, I’ve got a simple plan to reverse the damage of FOUR YEARS of aging inside your brain so you can keep sharp even as you grow old.
Now THAT’S the kind of change we can all believe in!
How to STOP aging inside your brain
This new study looked at brain size and how it changes over time.
As we get older, it shrinks… just a little bit… every year.
The more it shrinks, the more problems you can expect to have including senior moments and cognitive decline.
If it shrinks too much, you could even be at risk for dementia.
Slow that shrink, on the other hand, and the more likely you’ll hit your 70s, 80s, 90s and beyond ready to dominate trivia night – and that’s what the new study reveals.
A way to dramatically slow that shrink.
And all you gotta do is keep active!
Here’s the best part of the study: The type and intensity is entirely up to you. If you’re the sporty type, you just need 2 hours a week of high-intensity exercise to get the benefit.
That’s just 17 minutes a day!
Not that athletic? Don’t sweat it… literally… because even light activity such as a gentle walk or time in your garden will also do the trick. You just need to put a little more time into it, at about one hour a day.
If you want to split the difference and engage in moderate exercise – walking at a brisker pace, for example – then you need about 35 minutes a day, or four hours a week, in total.
Folks who get those levels of activity have brains about 1.4 percent bigger than folks who get little to no activity.
That may not sound very big, 1.4 percent.
But when it comes to your brain, it’s HUGE.
That 1.4 percent is equal to the amount typically lost over FOUR YEARS of aging!
Call it one more reason to get up and get moving, even here in the age of quarantine.
No need to join a gym or any other kind of club.
You already have what you need: your own hands and feet. Put ’em to work with a sport, a leisure activity or even just a hobby that gets you moving and you’ll enjoy these brain-saving benefits AND give your heart a boost at the same time.
