Exercise facilitates brain processing functions. It helps the brain to create new neural connections faster, helps faster learning & increases alertness level.
In facilitating the brain’s work, games also put more information into the brain and help it perform better.
Strategic games like either video or board are games that players are often faced with autonomous decision making skills. Such games forces the brain to take in new information and make new connections, ie. Puzzles, video games, drafts and for those who are too feeble to engage in physical exercises or too lazy to start one, reading also helps. Reading makes flexible those parts of the brain that deals with problem-solving, seeing patterns and interpreting what others are saying to us about their feelings.
NB: Engage in exercises at your energy level, strenuous exercises only weakens you.
