WAY TO BETTER GRADES
Can exercise give you better grades? Studies indicate that college students
who regularly engage in vigorous exercise get better grades when
compared with students who do not exercise. Exercise helps reduce stress,
improves performance, and increases a sense of well-being. Set aside just
one hour a day and exercise – it can help improve your grades!
EXERCISE
NEUROGENESIS
(creation of new
neurons)
Exercise reinforces neural
connections by increasing
the number of dendrite
connections between
neurons, creating a denser
network. This allows the
brain to better
process and store
information.
ENDORPHINS
(chemical released by
pituitary gland)
MOOD-ENHANCER
Exercise stimulates the
release of endorphins.
Endorphins tend to
block pain and allow for
pleasure in the body.
This also helps reduce stress
and enhance the immune
system.
