Exercise and Memory Link

A new study published in Psycho-Oncology discusses the link between exercise and memory improvement in breast cancer survivors. I found it especially interesting because the results seem to be applicable to everyone, whether breast cancer survivor or not.

Click here to read the article about the study in Medical News Today, written by Catharine Paddock, PhD. (It's worth the 60 seconds or so if you are at all interested in your own memory improvement).

From the article: "They say the findings support their theory that physical activity indirectly influences perceived memory impairment via exercise self-efficacy, distress and fatigue.

Moderate-to-vigorous activity includes exercise that challenges you enough to make you breathless and sweaty - for example brisk walking, cycling, jogging, and taking part in exercise classes."

Do something to improve your memory today, whether that's reducing your stress level, memorizing a phone number, or exercising!
