Boost re­call with a stroll

Woman's World - - News -

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!
