Thanks for answering I actually was just meaning to search articles and accidentally posted. But I have a fit 45 year old man who had a stroke/heart attack while riding his bike outside. He has been through all his available sessions for PT/OT/and Speech and he is now with me in cardiac rehab. I’m looking for ideas on incorporating his workout with brain training. I’m really trying to focus on his understanding of time management. thank you
at one of the last IDEA conferences, I took a session with Lawrence Biscontini and Bernadette O’Brien on exercises for seniors. They were combining exercises with some mental challenges which proved to be challenging indeed, particularly when you consider that they were presenting to fitness professionals. It was a unique blend of simple math and memory questions that were to be execute WHILE doing exercises. It was tough but it also was playful. Here is a link to the session http://www.ideafit.com/conference/sessions/bosureg-mobility-and-stabilit… . I believe there is a video out with that workout. It may be worth looking into.
Everybody knows that physical exercise makes your brain work better. Not only mental exercises in college develop our brain. I know that learning a foreign language not only develops the brain, but also reduces the chances of dementia in old age. I learn Spanish in college, but sometimes I don’t have time to do my homework, so I order an essay on the best essay writing service https://uk.papersowl.com/ to save my time. The part of the brain that responds strongly to aerobic exercise is the hippocampus. That is why in college there is always physical education. Besides making memories stickier, exercise can help you focus and stay on task. The best scientific evidence comes from testing school children, but the same most likely applies to us all. Interspersing lessons with 20-minute bouts of aerobics-style exercise improved the attention spans of Dutch school pupils.
