The next time you’re working up a sweat in the gym, going for an invigorating five-mile run or tackling lengths in the swimming pool, you could be doing yourself a whole lot of favours, beyond those which were previously known. Of course, it comes as no surprise to find that exercise gives us an emotional lift. Matters such as endorphins (those feel-good hormones produced by our bodies) have been written about for years and years. But now, new research suggests that moderate exercise a few times a week can actually keep the mind sharp once you’re over fifty. Treating yourself to gay massage from https://www.tantricsoul.co.uk afterwards is what we’d recommend, but first let’s take a closer look at this recent study.

What Can Be Ideal For You!

Published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine, it’s the work of Australian researchers who have concluded that taking up (or resuming) exercise at any age is worth it because of the benefits not just to body but to mind. And if the more rigorous and challenging forms of exercise cannot be undertaken (because of fragility or injury for example), then softer, slower disciplines such as T’ai Chi are ideal. For some time now, we’ve known that brisk physical activity can diminish the chances of several diseases, including certain cancers and type-2 diabetes, but now it’s been discovered that because of the way the brain receives extra oxygen, blood, growth hormone and nutrients through exercise, new neurones and pathways can be formed.

The researchers were working at the University of Canberra and spent time studying the effects and benefits of a minimum of four weeks’ organised physical exercise. After carrying out an array of brain tests, they hit upon evidence that aerobic exercise enhances cognitive function – helping participants to think, read, learn and reason with greater skill. With strength/muscle exercise (e.g. Weights), they noticed an improvement in participants’ memory, planning skills and organisational abilities. The author of the study now recommends that over-50s be prescribed a moderate fitness regimen including both types of exercise.

Excercise and Gay Massage

If you’re unsure of what constitutes moderate exercise, the guideline is generally that you should be able to have a conversation while doing it. At the moment, NHS guidelines are for adults to undertake two-and-a-half hours of moderate aerobic activity every week with muscle/strength work two to three days a week. Naturally, it’s good to have days off and during those times, nothing is better for soothing an exercised body than gay massage. And thanks to the cognitive benefits of exercise, you’ll be able to enjoy the luxury massage even more because of your enhanced mind. Even better news is that your risk of depression and dementia are slashed by a third when you stick to the 150 minutes-a-week target.

It’s a problem as old as time itself. Few of us can quite make peace with hair-loss. It feels like being stripped of youth, beauty and vitality.
