So, this is a cool new finding.
According to the Neurobiology of Learning and Memory, you can learn 20% more new vocabulary words after an intense workout.
I have always said running was a mind-body experience, and now the science supports it.
Here is the reasoning. Just one 30-minute session pumps extra blood to your brain. That blood carries oxygen and the nutrients it needs to perform at maximum efficiency. In addition, cardio exercise improves functions like decision making, memory and problem solving.
So, remember this the next time you have a big proposal, meeting, or whenever you want to be on your A-Game. Just grab your kicks and hit the road for at least 30-minutes before, and have the confidence to know you will be at your best!
