Aerobic exercise is great for the heart and what’s good for the heart is generally good for the brain. It seems to me that until we have more hard facts, a combination of tai chi or other form of thoughtful exercise plus consistent aerobic exercise such as brisk walking could improve the health of nearly anyone who is not already following a healthy exercise lifestyle.
This is yet another study that gives me hope that we can improve our brains if we get active. Naturally, any exercise program should be approved by our doctor if we have any health issues at all.
