Fitness Book EOH

Posted: Updated:

Eating the right foods, exercise, and managing stress are important tools for a healthy body.

But lifestyle choices also improve your brain.

A Minot woman who has been involved in the fitness industry for 30 years, has written a book called "101 Brain Boosters" Here's Carla Burbidge with this week's Eye on Health.

For several years, MSU Physical Education Professor Dr. Terry Eckmann has been showing us fitness tips in our Eye on Fitness series. This is only a small part of her busy life. She presents fitness workshops internationally and writes for a variety of health and fitness publications. She recently became an author, with her first book "101 Brain Boosters."

Dr. Terry Eckmann, MSU Professor " 101 ways to help the brain be healthy, more productive and to be happier, little things can make a big difference"

The book highlights different ways people of all ages can take action and improve brain function. And she explains why it keeps the brain healthy. Terry recommends taking each idea separately.

"if take one a time you are more likely to remember it and make a lifestyle habit"

Genetics and life-style choices are the factors that determine how long you live. You have no control over genetics, but you can control your lifestyle.

Terry "we can do things that will help us do what we want to do for our lives, 101 Brain Boosters, can help us achieve that"

101 Brain Boosters will soon be at locations around town, for right now you can email her to purchase one. They are 20-dollars.

Terry says her publisher, a web company called Healthily Learning" has contracted her to author two more books. One of those will be 101 Simple Exercises, based on the KXMC Eye on Fitness series.

For Eye on Health I'm Carla Burbidge
