life long exerciseA study by researchers at King’s College London highlights a link between lifelong exercise and improved brain function in later life.
The study found that regular intensive lifelong exercise as a child and adult improved cognitive functioning at the age of 50 and that even exercise of a lower frequency could offer benefits for cognitive well-being.
Dr Alex Dregan, Lecturer in Translational Epidemiology and Public Health at King’s College London, believes the findings support the need for a lifelong approach when seeking to improve cognitive well-being and thinks the results are especially pertinent given recent concerns over the growth of an ageing population in the UK.

Stress does bad things to the heart. New studies have found higher rates of cardiac problems in veterans with PTSD, New Orleans residents six years after Hurricane Katrina and Greeks struggling through that country's financial turmoil.

Disasters and prolonged stress can raise "fight or flight" hormones that affect blood pressure, blood sugar and other things in ways that make heart trouble more likely, doctors say. They also provoke anger and helplessness and spur heart-harming behaviors like eating or drinking too much.

Short bouts of moderately intense exercise seem to boost self control, indicates an analysis of the published evidence in the British Journal of Sports Medicine.

The researchers also conclude that, ‘Exercise might be a useful treatment for conditions characterised by impaired higher brain functions, such as attention hyperactivity deficit disorder (ADHD) and autism, and may help delay the ravages of dementia’.

The resulting increased blood and oxygen flow to the pre-frontal cortex may explain the effects, suggest the researchers.

That exercise-induced glow can wear off pretty quickly, of course, but does that mean that any happiness imparted by being inactivity is temporary and fleeting? No, according to a study published in the American Journal of Epidemiology, which found that regular activity is linked with greater happiness over periods of years.

This Canadian study analyzed data from eight National Population Health Survey cycles, spanning 15 years, to see how activity level at the beginning of the survey and then years later was associated with happiness.

It affects up to 15 per cent of teenagers but can be a life-long condition.
