Not so long ago, scientists thought we were born with a set amount of neurons that died off as we aged and did not use these pathways through the brain. New research suggests that vigorous aerobic exercise creates new neurons.

Increased brain activity in the frontal lobe was seen as a direct result of 30-40 minutes of aerobic activity. This part of the brain helps you form “clear” thinking. That is focus, concentration, goal setting and time management.

One researcher split up people into 2 groups. One jogged for 30 minutes before watching a “gut-wrenching” part of a movie; the other group just stretched. The former group was found to “recover” faster from what they just saw. Again, science has not been able to pinpoint just why. But, no doubt, running or any vigorous activity helps the brain as much as it helps the rest of our body.
