The book named Spark is a groundbreaking and fascinating investigation into the transformative effects of exercise on the brain.

How Brain and Exercise are related?

What can exercise do to your body?

  • Exercise improves your learning capability,
  • Reduces anxiety and stress,
  • Improves your mood and motivation,
  • Makes you a better version of yourself for the rest of the day.
  • The real benefits of exercise happen in the brain.

Use of brain?

You may think it is about solving maths problems or creating a new smartphone app that will make you a millionaire. But neuroscientist Daniel Wolpert says that our brain is for one thing only.

To Produce Adaptable and Complex movement

How?

Take the example of the Koala Bear(an iconic Australian animal). In the past, it had a much bigger brain but once it adapted its digestive system to derive all the energy it needs from Eucalyptus leaves, it did not have to move as much, less movement meant less brain activity and its brain shrunk.

LESS MOVEMENT => LESS BRAIN ACTIVITY

Proof in Spark

A 2007 study has shown that exercise also primes the brain to learn faster. People who did high-intensity training beforehand were able to learn vocabulary 20% faster than those who remained inactive.

Point of high importance

When you exercise you might not feel drastic change all of a sudden but later on you will look back and notice the difference in learning speed, mood, and focus and get more things done.
