The benefits of exercise are well established. Regular exercise is one of the most important recommendations for healthy brains, as well as bodies. Researchers have found that physical fitness not only prevents atrophy of muscles, it also prevents the atrophy of certain brain regions.

There are also mental exercises you can do to keep your mind healthy. Such exercises include doing puzzles and games, or activities you enjoy, such as reading, learning languages or knitting. With that in mind, we created a crossword puzzle for you to enjoy.
