On the occasion of the Brussels 20 km race that took place on 31 May 2015, the European Brain Council has decided to shine a light on the benefits of physical exercise on the brain by launching a new twitter campaign: #Move4YrBrain
It is already well known that aerobic exercise can help reducing the risks of almost every known disease involving the heart, the lungs and many other organs. However, studies show that running also have mighty benefits for the brain, as it fosters the growth of new brain cells. In consequence, exercise can not only make you smarter, it also contributes to an improved mental condition.
In order to raise awareness on these facts, the EBC team joined – and finished – the 20k race.
Henceforth, we encourage each and every one of you to start – or keep – exercising and share your pictures via Twitter #Move4YrBrain, or our website. Tee shirts can be made available upon request.
