Dr. Veronica Anderson, Founder and Host of web radio talk show, Wellness for the Real World, a weekly resource for wellness of mind, body and spirit, highlights the positive effects that daily physical movement can have on our mental aptitude while aging.
New York, NY – August 9, 2011 – Dr. Veronica Anderson, Founder and Host of health and wellness web radio talk show, Wellness for the REAL World, recently published a blog on her website www.drveronica.com suggesting that small doses of daily physical activity can preserve aging adults’ cognitive functions. Dr. Veronica explains the research findings in her blog, titled “Make a Move to Preserve Your Memory.”
Dr. Anderson writes, “Let’s face it. We’re all going to die someday. We’ll decline in physical ability and mental aptitude. Our eyelids will sag, our skin will loosen and our pace will be a little slower. Nobody likes to think about the aging process – especially when thinking about the fact that it will become much more difficult to, well… think!”
“Two separate studies recently found that movement and activity are effective tools for preserving cognitive function in later years of life…According to the New York Times, a group of elderly adults were studies over the course of 2-5 years, for mental capacity and its correlation to their personal activity level. Some led inactive daily lives, while others engaged in walking, gardening, cooking and cleaning activities. The findings were remarkable. While those who lived entirely sedentary lives ‘scored significantly worse over the years on tests of cognitive function, the most active group showed little decline. About 90 percent of those with the greatest daily energy expenditure could think and remember just about as well, year after year,’ ” explains Dr. Anderson.
Wellness for the REAL World features information on developing a healthy and fit mind, body and spirit in today’s dynamic society. Dr. Anderson adds her easily understandable, fun-infused voice to the broad-audience discussion on today’s most popular medicines, alternative treatments, health policies and opinions of wellness – so that her listeners can benefit from truly vigorous life in the real world today.
