Exercise/Brain Function

After reading the article given to us on Quartz, I had a few take aways. The article started off by discussing how exercise is one of the best ways to overcome stress. The scientific reason is because exercising brings about the neurotransmitters one may lose from anxiety and depression, such as serotonin, noradrenalin, dopamine and endorphins. However, exercising can also simply just be something one can go to get their mind off anything.

Having an everyday or continuous routine is a great way to not only get the mind off any stress one may have, but also gets you in shape and keeps you healthy! Staying active early on and sticking to it is a great way to keep up the good habits. That is why I found it very interesting when the article mentioned the opening of several outdoor preschools, to prepare young children to stay active and finding exercise as a key way to help the brain to work effectively!

Enjoy and feel free to share this image I created with a quote I felt really related to this topic that I found at BrainQuotes!

  1. Hey Tiffany! Great post! I like how you included a short summary and then mentioned how finding a workout routine can be really helpful in staying healthy. I, like you, thought it was a good idea to have outdoor preschools because then kids can get into the habit of staying active at an early age. I loved your picture with the quote in the middle. I thought it was really creative and great way to include self-made media. Overall I really liked your reflection!
