Celebrate The Spirit of Easter, or Spring – Infographics

I am reprinting this from last Easter. It still seems appropriate.


 

I seem to have a case of Easter Spirit, or maybe it’s just Spring Fever. We actually had some sun and pleasant weather here in Chicago yesterday afternoon and it got to me. In any event, I am feeling really expansive this Easter Sunday morning and wish you the same.

The idea of achieving and maintaining good health in this blog really is just an exercise (no pun intended) in restoring ourselves on a daily basis, isn’t it? We wake up in the morning and our body says to us, metaphorically, what have you done for me lately? It’s nice that you ate well and got some exercise yesterday, but this is a new day. So, get to it.

So, in the spirit of Easter and rebirth and good health I wanted to share these two infographics on the benefits of exercise to our brains. Too often we overlook these benefits which are so important to us today and even more so tomorrow, in our senior years.

brainbenefits-01Regular readers know that my family history includes both Alzheimer’s and dementia. So, exercise is most relevant to me. When people ask me why I ride my bike every day, I always tell them that I am paying for my old age one bike ride at a time.

Happy Easter!
