[EXCERPT] A three-year study by the University of Edinburgh found that folks over 70 who exercised regularly exhibited less brain shrinkage than seniors who did not. The study also found that active seniors had better cognitive function and a reduced risk of dementia.

The U.S. Government’s National Institute on Aging says that regular exercise can lead to lower levels of stress, better sleep cycles, and better mental health. And the more you’re moving, the greater the benefits to both your physical and mental health. In fact, the risk of developing Alzheimer’s triples for seniors who have a high body mass index.

Improving your activity level doesn’t have to be as daunting as it sounds. The National Institute on Aging recommends that adults do at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic exercise every week. If you’re not a natural gym rat, you can rack up those 2.5 hours by taking long walks, riding a bike, playing golf without the cart, swimming, or even practicing online yoga from the comfort of your living room.
