The Latin saying, ‘mens sana in corpore sano’, which in English would be ‘a healthy mind in a healthy body’, is more relevant today than ever. There are plenty of new studies that have focused on this subject and have come to the conclusion that long and intensive physical activity can indeed improve cognitive ability.
I think that this beneficial effect is probably related to the intensity of the training. “Mild intensive exercise would involve low, but noticeable levels of psychological stimulation, which would help the brain to prepare for new information gathering and storing this information in the memory.” Excessive physical activity can cause the body and stimulate the brain too much so that it takes up all mental facilities completely and there is not enough energy left to create solid memories. That is why it is ideal to do light forms of exercise to improve your learning ability and memory.
“The healthy body is the product of the healthy mind.”
-George Bernard Shaw-
A healthy mind can help you to keep your body healthy
Health is holistic, and this is precisely why you cannot neglect any aspect that is part of your health (emotional, physical and mental). Someone who wants to take good care of his health must ensure that he develops a strong and consistent mentality so that physical activity becomes a habit and he can feel good in every aspect of his life. Working on this mental strength every day will give him the chance to achieve both his personal and his professional goals.
Achieving a state of mental well-being and balance can help us generate the energy we need to be more steadfast with our goals, making it easier to keep our bodies healthy. Your mental health and attitude are decisive factors to improve your resilience, strength, and productivity.
Every morning early, the most peaceful and quiet moment of the day, a routine of mental exercises, is an ideal start for your day planning and will make the brain stronger so that the mental capacity also increases. Several studies show that the greater a person’s mental capacity and stability, the greater the chance that he will and will remain physically healthy.
By continuing to put, even when you think you can no longer do, is what distinguishes you from other people.
Habits to keep your mind healthy
How often have you said that you simply do not have enough time to take good care of yourself? It is true that the raging pace at which we live our lives makes it difficult for us to take good care of ourselves; yet taking care of ourselves should be an obligation, a priority.
To keep your mind healthy, you need social support and it is important that you are able to integrate yourself into groups of people with whom you can identify yourself. A lot of neuroscientists believe that love and loving are the most important activities for the mind, which includes intellectual understanding and emotional availability.
Physical exercise, another important habit to keep your mind healthy, stimulates the production of substances that support a psychological well-being, such as endorphins, hormones that are linked to experiencing pleasure. To maintain a healthy mind, it is best to do physical exercise in the fresh air, combining sunlight with contact with nature and other people.
A good night’s rest is essential
Finally, a good night’s rest is essential to maintain and maintain your brain functions. While you are asleep, your brain has the opportunity to activate other less common parts of the brain in addition to the parts that have already been activated during the day, and it is believed that this is helpful to the functions of to keep the mind in balance.
