Exercise offered him more benefits than anything else
While not participating in any study, Sian knows that his hikes have their benefits for his body and brain. Thankfully his medical team agrees with him and continues to encourage him to take his daily hike.
He had originally tried to keep his brain stimulated with Sudoku and crosswords, but he found that it wasn't working for him. Instead of helping him, it was causing him to feel discouraged and stressed. He would find himself staring blankly at the puzzles, and reading proved to be no better either. He would find himself drifting off before he could even finish a sentence.
