  • Improves sleep, which is also important for brain health
  • Can reduce isolation if you get out to exercise
  • Increase one’s sense of accomplishment which can help prevent depression
  • Increases the hippocampus, which improves memory
  • Pumps blood to the brain, which can help you think more clearly
  • Increases the connections between nerve cells in the brain, which improves memory and helps protect against brain injury and disease
