How can physical activity strengthen your brain?

A regular exercise regimen goes a long way in caring for your brain. Seeking out daily opportunities to practice moderate physical activity can support your long-term brain health.


Exercise helps the brain thrive – both today and into the future. Physical activity can help promote cardiovascular health, reduce inflammation and lower levels of stress hormones, benefits which also translate to better brain health.


  • Practice physical activities that bring you joy.
  • When possible, take the stairs instead of the elevator.
  • Reduce sedentary behavior by adding movement, like walking around your office.
  • Consult with a medical professional before taking on a challenging exercise program.
