You don't need a gym membership for a quick workout. Engaging in about ten minutes of moderate exercise, such as jumping jacks or walking up stairs, can help clear your mind and sharpen your cognitive abilities.

Is your brain feeling stuck on repeat? Struggling to focus or remember your grocery list?

Here's a simple solution—just 10 minutes of moderate exercise! It's like giving your mind a mini-vacation, leaving you refreshed and ready to tackle the day.

But the benefits go beyond just a temporary mood lift. Research shows that even a short burst of movement can significantly impact your brain health.

According to a 2024 study published in the US-based Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health, just six to ten minutes of moderate to vigorous exercise can enhance your working memory and improve higher-level cognitive skills, such as organization, prioritization, and planning.

This type of exercise can include walking, brief jogging, or climbing stairs—essentially any activity that challenges you without making it difficult to hold a conversation.
