It’s not uncommon to hear people defend their exercise routine by saying, “I walk every day.” Walking is a great exercise and has some tremendous benefits, especially when done regularly, but it’s not really what’s best. Body Moves owner Beth Pelton explains why in a few videos posted during the pandemic. You can find those posts HERE and HERE.
In the same vein, most people when challenged about engaging their brain argue that their daily crossword or Suduko puzzle is enough. The truth is: it is not. Puzzles can be good tools, just like reading, but there are other ways your brain needs to be challenged and when coupled with movement, the results are multiplied.
