Watching Sports Makes Us Smarter!

Are you following NBA or NHL playoffs? Did you tune in to see the Kentucky Derby last weekend? Well, give yourself a well-deserved pat on the back for prioritizing self-care! Not only that, but you might be developing your brain…

Exciting news: a recent study revealed that indulging in sports can significantly enhance our mental well-being and contribute to overall happiness.

Researchers conducted brain scans on individuals while they watched various sporting events, observing heightened activity in the brain’s “reward circuits.” These circuits are associated with sensations of pleasure and joy.

Furthermore, the study uncovered that individuals who regularly engage in sports viewing exhibit increased gray matter in these brain regions. This suggests that consistent sports consumption may even lead to structural changes in the brain over time.
