There is growing evidence that lifestyle can affect your brain health and risk for dementia.
Here are some tips to keep your brain active and stimulate new brain neurons.
- As an exercise, walk backwards – different parts of the brain are activated when you walk backwards.
- Learn to dance some new dance patterns, ie, if you have never gone square dancing – go square dancing.
- Surf the web – follow interesting links to see what new things you can learn
- Enjoy a healthy diet, don’t smoke, avoid alcohol except a glass of red wine at night if you like, and get plenty of regular exercise – 4-5 times a week of brisk walking is a good idea.
