ST. LOUIS – New research finds that a few minutes of moderate to high-intensity aerobic activity can boost young adults’ memory and concentration for up to two hours.
Thirteen studies looked at the short-term impact of biking, walking and running on the mental health of 18 to 35-year-olds. The workouts were linked to improving a person’s ability to plan and solve problems.
The improvements lasted anywhere from 30 to 120 minutes.
The report was published in the journal, “Translational Sports Medicine”.
