Grow Your Brain by Walking

We all know that walking is good for us, but did you know you can actually prevent shrinkage in the memory retention part of your brain by walking?

According to an item in a national magazine, middle-aged adults who took three 40-minute walks a week for a year saw a two percent increase in the size of their hippocampus, the part of the brain that deals with memory.

The article goes on to say that "preventing shrinkage could improve a person's retention for years", something that should be worth walking for.
