Boost recall with a stroll
The natural way to safeguard your memory and make it easier to recall names, dates and where you left your keys? Going for a walk! According to a study at Johns Hopkins University, taking a leisurely 10-minute walk once daily is all it takes to get a significant ongoing memory boost.
The why: Researchers explain that low-intensity exercise—like relaxed walking—spurs the growth of more cells in a key memory center of the brain, helping it work more effectively. And you can get an ever bigger boost by walking with a friend!
