This article caught my interest because I like both of these things. How are they tied together in this article? According to this study both coffee and exercise are both good for the mind. Specifically they studied the effects on working memory. Working memory they define as:
Working memory is key to our ability to function as a curious human being. It helps the learning process and makes it possible to store information, such as phone numbers or a shopping list, in the short term.
And both coffee and exercise improved working memory. We all know at some level that exercise is good for us. I can't imagine that drinking coffee is as good as exercise but it might be of significant benefit. Every little bit helps. I like to do yoga which has the added benefit of keeping my joints healthy. I also do rebounding (mini-trampoline) daily which among other things moves lymph in the body. It's good exercise and it's also a lot of fun and convenient (I use it in my basement) . Here is an article on the benefits of rebounding: https://theholistichealthacademy.com/17-proven-health-benefits-of-rebounding/
