The Many Benefits of Physical Activity
Staying active helps the body and the mind. In fact, doctors believe that regular activity can stave off dementia. Some studies have shown that the bilateral stimulation of walking stimulates the brain as well as the body. And the improved circulation that comes from regular walking helps increase the flow of oxygen-rich blood to the brain.
