Healthy Living: Running & Your Brain

Good for your heart, hood for your muscles, but is running good for your brain?

A pair of researchers at the University of Arizona just found that it improves the connectivity of parts of the brain, parts that lose traction as we get older.

In Healthy Living, we learn more about a study that may convince you to get you moving. 

Increased brain connectivity has also been found in people who do activities using fine motor skills, like playing musical instruments.

The researchers say running also takes complex thinking, as athletes navigate or plan where to run or how to keep balance.
