This helps to prevent the disease from appearing in the operation of Qi and blood.
On the other hand, humans will increase with age, metabolism will slow down, toxins are more likely to accumulate, so the right amount of exercise also helps to delay aging, clean up the body. In addition, exercise is not only physical movement, but also attention to the movement of the brain.
Aging is an unavoidable problem, and as the body ages, brain cells are dying and decreasing, doing more brain exercises can slow down brain death and mobilize the brain’s potential.
