"Strong brain with an active body". That's the name of a lecture I attended yesterday with the Norwegian brain scientist and MD Ole Petter Hjelle.
He presented research results how the brain is affected in relation to physical exercise.
Research shows that physical activity, in addition to giving us a longer and better life, makes us more creative, improves stress management and memory, and reduces the risk of depression and dementia.
30-45 mins a week reduces the risk of depression by 40%. :-)
