We all know that exercise is good for us, and the New York Times reports that exercise can make your brain process information faster and more efficiently:

If this isn’t a good enough reason to get on that damn treadmill tomorrow morning, I don’t know what is. Personally, I know my brain definitely is more “alert” when I get regular exercise; I’m able to think better with less brain fog. How has your brain benefited from exercise?
