Are you afraid of one day not recognizing your closest friend? Your spouse? Children? Brain disorders, including memory loss, are fast becoming the single biggest health problem in the world. Quite frankly — given the current demographic makeup of the sport of pickleball — this is a topic that may very well hit home for some of you. You likely know someone or have known someone afflicted by this cruel disease. Perhaps a parent, grandparent or other loved one is battling this condition right now. Perhaps you’re in the early stages yourself.
Exercise (pickleball, for example) is the Most Transformative thing You Can Do for your Brain
There is hope, however. According to Wendy Suzuki, neuroscientist, exercise is the most transformative thing you can do for your brain today.
Physical activity — moving your body — has immediate, long-lasting and protective benefits for your brain that could last for the rest of your life.
Aerobic exercise, like pickleball, results in a bigger and stronger hippocampus and prefrontal cortex. This is critical to understand because these two areas of the brain are most susceptible to neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s. Exercise means it will take longer for these diseases to actually have an effect. Shown below is a TED talk from Wendy Suzuki about the brain-changing benefits of exercise.
