Climbing Trees Can Improve Your Memory

 

A study by researchers at the University of North Florida found that physical activity, such as climbing a tree or running barefoot, can dramatically improve cognitive abilities.

"Improving working memory can have a beneficial effect on so many areas in our life, and it´s exciting to see that proprioceptive activities can enhance it in such a short period of time," says associate professor Tracy Alloway.

Researchers found that the working memory capacity of the study participants had increased by 50 percent after completing physical activities including walking and crawling on a beam, climbing trees and navigating obstacles.

but don´t know what it means? Well you think you know but might be imagining things? That´s on two glasses of wine, you don´t have to answer this. Be nice if you would, or, could.
