Swim for Your Brain!

Thursday, August 1st, 2013 by admin

As we enjoy the last few weeks of summer, get swimming to help your brain! A study out of Indiana University discovered that swimming improves brain functioning. 80 year old brains act 30 years younger! When we swim, we engage every muscle from our fingertips to our toes! Our muscles work in sync when we swim – it requires “complete corporeal coordination!” This coordination sharpens motor function, which speeds up how quickly our brains talk to our bodies. Have you ever witnessed your children acting on an impulse only to have them hurt themselves because their brain didn’t get the message to their bodies quickly enough? Swimming improves this communication! Guess what else does? BRAINJOGGING!

Brainjogging stimulates both sides of the brain to improve processing, so when your body needs immediate action, your brain is ready for the challenge!

Enjoy the rest of summer! Play, read, and swim so your brain can be fully ready for the upcoming school year! A new school year begins within weeks! NOW is the absolute BEST time to start your student on Brainjogging!
