Got a migraine? Don't just sit there and wait for it to go away, exercise it away!

Swedish scientists have found that a programme of regular, medium-intensity cycling can reduce the frequency of attacks by up to 90 percent.

Regular exercise help curb migraines which happens when the neurological system reacts to anything out of the ordinary. The key is that exercise releases endorphins, the body's natural painkillers.

Also, if you're looking to improve your brain power, studies have shown that those who exercise most have bigger brain volumes in key areas such as the temporal lobe which is involved in language, memory and emotion.
