A few years ago, I attended an informative Brain and Exercise seminar presented by a few professors from the University of Pittsburgh. Their research and conclusive data supported their hypothesis that 30 minutes of aerobic exercise every day staved off memory loss and brain deterioration. After their PowerPoint presentation displayed the graphs and data from their research, I believed their conclusions and I left the seminar with the sense that I had the power to regenerate my brain with daily exercise and a good diet. My efforts with exercise and a good diet are not consistent but every time I make an attempt, I feel that I am helping my brain and overall health. Now, as I contemplate leaving my computer screen behind to take an evening walk, I spy an article that displays contrary data and conclusions to this belief. Even though I will share this article with you, I cannot help but feel that the research is wrong! I cannot wrap my head around their conclusion that exercise doesn’t help with memory loss! In protest, I am posting this article and then taking a walk around my hilly neighborhood. As I trudge up the hills like the “Little Engine that Could”, I will repeat: “I think I can, I think I can, I think I can”…help my brain with exercise!
