There are a lot of ways to treat your brain with love and care for its health. We all know what a gift to mental exercise is, but adding reading to your regimen ups the ante significantly! According to scientific research, one of the very best ways you can exercise your brain is reading, and the reason why is all connected to memory (and remember, cardio exercise also increases memory function!!). One of the brain’s most important functions is memory, it’s the storage center of everything a person has learned, including not only their name and identity and the identities of the people around them, but the skills they need to function in everyday life and luckily all you have to do is pick up a BOOK!! Mental stimulation like reading can help protect memory and thinking skills, especially with age. Research has shown that reading every day can slow down late-life cognitive decline, keeping brains healthier and higher functioning for longer.

In our constant quest to enhance your InCycle experience (and to keep your mind and body strong), we are starting our very own InCycle Library Share! Bring a book that you have read and take one to read that someone else has shared!! Be sure to sign your name in each book you read so once another InCycle friend reads the same book, we can share our reading experiences!
