Exercise Boosts BDNF’s Which Spark Creativity, Productivity, and Physical Inertia!

28 Jul

I train many executives and CEO’s that are pretty worn out by the time they get to me. They have high pressure jobs that require mental acuity for long periods of time. Most of us can stay focused for a 2 or 3 hours at a time. But it’s an entirely different story when you have 10,000 employees and managers demanding your attention all day long.

Physical fitness releases endorphins in our bodies which boost how we feel; an affect most executives try to get from “coffee”. It also boosts brain power by creating new brain cells (aka neurogenesis) that improve overall brain function. Some studies even suggest that exercise can boost brain-derived protein (known as BDNF) in the body which is believed to improve decision making and clarity of thought.

Regular exercise also sharpens memory and ability to learn new things by increasing cell production in the hippocampus (which controls learning and memory).
