Do you know that we can actually get smarter as we get older. The “Use It or Lose It” theory is now widely accepted by scientists in the medical community. Cognitive ability and physical activity are very much related. We know that physical exercise is associated with improved attention, concentration and the ability to remember. Since the brain is a muscle, just like the other muscles in the body, the brain can get stronger when it is used, and it will get weaker when it is ignored.
