Don’t lose your head.

Posted on: January 3, 2007

After the holidays, next on most people’s agenda is to either diet or exercise or both to shed the pounds that piled up seemingly unnoticed from all the soirees and little get-togethers. I was reading today’s news and chanced upon this article on keeping the brain healthy. Well, a good physique is really worthless when all your brain can tell you is drool or act 10 years your real age. Not that some people don’t do that but that is another matter altogether. :mrgreen:

For a healthy brain, the following are recommended:

  • Stay Mentally Active. Activities such as learning a new skill or language, working on crossword puzzles, taking classes, and learning how to dance can help challenge and maintain your mental functioning.
  • Exercise Regularly. Exercising often can increase circulation, improve coordination, and help prevent conditions that increase the risk of dementia such as heart disease, stroke and diabetes.
  • Stay Social. Spending time with friends, volunteering, and traveling can keep your mind active and healthy.
  • Get Plenty of Sleep. Not getting enough sleep can have a negative impact on brain health.

The above are my favorites. But for the complete list from The Alliance for Aging Research, click here.
