Walk to school, get better grades?

It appears the “good ol’ days” of walking to school are also good for the brain. After tracking 1700 students aged 13-18, Spanish researchers found that female students who walked to school for longer than 15 minutes had a cognitive advantage over those who commuted by vehicle or those who walked for 15 minutes or less to school.

Positive Tip: Choose a walk over a sedentary commute and don’t worry…it doesn’t have to be in “a blizzard, uphill both ways” to get the brain benefit!
