New York, Aug 3: You may have attempted this during childhood but climbing a tree and balancing on a beam along with yoga exercises can dramatically improve cognitive skills in adults too, researchers at the University of North Florida have found.

By doing activities that make us think, we can exercise our brains as well as our bodies, they said.

"By taking a break to do activities that are unpredictable and require us to consciously adapt our movements, we can boost our working memory to perform better in the classroom and the boardroom," said research associate Dr. Ross Alloway.

The results suggest that working memory improvements can be made in just a couple of hours of these physical exercises.
