YOURS (UK) - - Brain Boosters -

Women who walk for at least one-and-a-half hours a week are less likely to have mem­ory prob­lems than those who walk for 40 min­utes or less, ac­cord­ing to one study. The rea­son? Ex­er­cise in­creases cir­cu­la­tion to the brain and helps it lay down new neu­ral path­ways. DO THIS: Vary your work­outs. The more you can do, the bet­ter. Try­ing dif­fer­ent ac­tiv­i­ties is an­other way of ex­er­cis­ing your brain as well as your body – so go for a brisk walk one day, then later in the week have a swim.
