They say that an apple a day keeps the doctor away, but if the doctor is cute screw the fruit. Some people believe that having a balanced diet is enough to sharpen your brain and make it very dynamic and well functioning. But for me, I do believe that the fastest way to mentally reach your absolute peak is through shaking that body.
The brain and the body both are two components of a single entity. They both go together and can never be separated. But why work out the body if the brain is the target?
As an athlete growing up practicing Taekwondo every other day or so since I was a kid back then in 1995. I can tell from a professional perspective that an apple Might be nothing compared to regular physical exercising.
Here are some scientific proofs to defend my thesis. Many scientific tests conducted on animals and human beings themselves found that the brain is nourished by the blood coming straight through arteries, pumped by the heart. Not only that but here are some other benefits:
Exercising makes the blood carry the nutrients and oxygen that your brain and cells need to burn for fuel.
Exercising helps lower the blood pressure and reduces levels of artery-clogging cholesterol.
Exercising improves circulation of blood within the brain
Exercising relieve depression and improves the mood and confidence.
It strengthens the heart and keeps blood sugar level balanced especially for diabetics.
On top of all of this, Exercising boosts the nerve production which makes the brain cells form new connections with each other.
It’s therefore very important that we choose some fun exercises we love to do that would push our heart’s rate 50% faster than our rate at normal days because that will definitely benefit the heart and the lungs and our whole body system. And after a short period of time we will feel mentally and physically more energized and friskier than ever.
But to top it all, I am not a fan of an apple a day keeps the doctor way. Rather I am a fan of having a romp between the sheets.
