Traditionally, exercise has been valued primarily for its physical benefits, such as heart health, lower blood pressure, and an overall healthier physique. However, in the past decade, social scientists have compiled evidence suggesting additional benefits of regular exercise: cognitive improvements such as increased mental stamina, improved concentration, sharper memory, and reduced stress.
The July 2018 edition of the Texas Bar Journal, entitled “Wellness and Well-Being,” further explores the connection between regular exercise and cognitive improvement, specifically in the legal industry. Kara Batey, a shareholder at BRANSCOMB LAW, discusses her yoga journey and the positive impact it has had on her legal practice. For more information view the Texas Bar Journal’s “In Recess” page.
