10 Breakthrough Ways Working Out Can Boost Your Brainpower…
Most people start working out because of it’s benefits to your body, especially for weight loss.
But there are a plethora of non weight-loss related benefits to working out!
In particular, working out helps your mind and mood.
1. Working Out Improves Your Memory…
Working out improves the production of cells in your hippocampus.
(That’s the part of your brain responsible for memory and learning.)
Research has also linked children’s brain development to their activity levels.
You can even develop increased ability to learn new things if you workout!
2. Working Out Improves Confidence…
If you workout, you tend to feel better about yourself.
Perhaps this is why gym rats obsessively take selfies? (me included 😉
3. Working Out Makes You More Creative
Working out boosts creativity for up to two hours after you train.
Maybe next time your in a rut professionally, you should look to take a quick walk instead of drinking another cup of coffee?
Better yet, take a walk outdoors…
4. Working Out Outdoors Increases Self-Esteem…
Working out oudoors can help increase self-esteem.
What’s more, the vitamin D you soak up from the sun can help fight depression.
If you’re in a cold place, bundle up and get some great snow shoes to fight the winter blues during the (few) hours that the sun is out.
5. Working Out Reduces Stress…
If you’re anything like me, you won’t consider ANYTHING better to reduce stress than working out.
Even if my stress is related to a lack of time for work or family – I know that managing a workout is the best way I can manage my schedule.
Why is that?
Well, exercise helps to increase norepinephrine.
This is the chemical in your brain that helps moderate stress!
6. Working Out Makes You Smarter…
Just like SlimTea helps boost brain function and improve cognitive performance, working out helps improve overall brain performance.
Working out can even help create new brain cells.
About to make a big presentation or take a hard test?
Work out (and guzzle some SlimTea!). That’s because working out increases a brain-derived protein called BDNF.
BDNF, or “brain-derived neurotrophic factor”, is a protein that can help with decision making, higher thinking, and learning.
7. Working Out Increases Productivity…
Just like SlimTea increases productivity due to it’s high content of L-Theanine…
Working out gives you more energy, which leads to more productivity throughout the day.
Scientists even believe that working out midday benefits your body’s circadian rhythms, your internal body clock.
8. Working Out Makes You Happier…
Just like SlimTea increases the production of serotonin in the brain, working out also increases happiness levels.
That’s because working out boosts dopamine production (the same rush you feel if you were to do cocaine!)
Many scientists believe that working out is SO powerful, that it is MORE effective for treating depression or anxiety than antidepressant pills.
Now that’s my kind of ‘buzz’!
9. Working Out Helps Control Addiction…
Well speaking of cocaine and happy chemicals, working out releases dopamine, our brain’s reward chemical.
We normally associate dopamine with the feeling from sex, drugs, alcohol, food, and exercise!
Exercise, therefore, is GREAT for addiction recovery.
It works to effectively distract you from your addiction and helps you prioritize a new addiction – working out!
Another addiction recovery benefit of exercise is that it helps reset your body’s circadian rhythms, which are interrupted when you take drugs or alcohol.
Please also know that SlimTea boosts your mood and energy levels – further assisting you in addiction recovery – and the motivation to workout!
10. Working Out Helps Prevent Cognitive Decline…
I’m in my thirties – and I often remember fondly how “smart” I felt in my twenties.
I may not have been smarter (although I know my vocabulary was better attuned thanks to university ;-), but I really felt sharp and thought quickly on my feet.
I was a mean debater – especially in theology!
Things are now a bit foggier. I’ve forgotten a lot of the facts and figures that used to be on the tip of my tongue.
As you age, your brain may actually lose brain cells and cognitive function.
Working out, **especially between the ages of 25 and 45**, helps boost chemicals in your brain that support cognitive preservation.
What’s more, working out helps prevent degeneration of your hippocampus, the part of your brain responsible for memory and learning.
Working out is GREAT.
But you can also get the many same benefits of working out from SlimTea.
- Helps Control Addiction…
- Stress Reduction
- Increased Happiness/Serotonin
- Increased Productivity
- Higher Cognitive Performance.
Oh yeah – and it’s also GREAT for weight loss.
