Learn more about the 'why' behind


Why are we talking about exercise?

We all know exercise is good for us, the problem is finding time (and energy) for it. But the way we worked yesterday is not the way we must work today. This is the long-haul. Stepping away from your computer, or “adding more” to your plate may seem impossible, but you have to. If you “go down” who is there to catch you? Or make sure those things you are working so hard to achieve continue?

Even a little bit of exercise can help! Exercise releases chemicals that protect your brain and improve your focus.

Start with Small Changes

We know, we know... you’ve heard it all before, and it’s easier said than done. Start by making small changes today.

Some positions require you to be on your feet all day, moving around. The good news: that qualifies! It may not be “ideal” or optimal exercise, but this is not the time for “ideal”. We can settle for “okay enough”. Same thing if you’re seated primarily at a desk – a little movement can go a long way.

Exercise increases neuroprotective chemicals and stimulates the growth of new brain cells. Exercise has a protective effect on your brain. In times of stress, brain cells and neurons need all the extra protection they can get. 

Exercise increases oxygen in your brain. This increases cognitive performance in the short-term and long-term protects against effects of dementia.

Feeling blue or anxious? Exercise increases the neurotransmitters serotonin and norepinephrine which can improve mood and ability to process information.
