Personal Power is the result of taking charge of our minds in order to make ourselves powerful. Now, new research proves the positive effects that exercise has on our brains. So, it would seem logical to assume that exercise can play an important role in increasing and maintaining your personal power.
You know that exercise helps to keep your body in good shape by reducing fat to prevent weight gain and combat muscle loss.
Now experts from the University of Montreal have produced evidence to show that a group of overweight men, average age 49, managed to improve their mental agility as a result of exercising to reduce their weight. The men used a twice-weekly regime of indoor cycling, weight training and interval training. After 4 months their attention span, information processing, short-term memory and flexibility of thought had all improved significantly.
Further research has also shown the benefits of exercise on reducing middle-age stress and depression. In particular, running has been shown to have an especially beneficial effect in combatting depression.
The evidence in favour of regular exercise is mounting as a result of scientific studies being carried out at Cambridge University, the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, the University of East Anglia, the UEA Medical School and the University of British Columbia.
For middle aged people a combination of running and weight training seems to be most beneficial. For older people walking, weights and yoga are beneficial.
