Here are 3 ways to reverse the efects of aging on your brain so you can enjoy life into your 70’s and beyond!
How to Reverse the Efects of Aging on Your Brain
Here’s a few tips on how to keep your brain sharp into your 70’s and 80’s...
#1. Exercise
Surprise, surprise! I would highly suggest doing this irst thing in the morning. It makes for a much more productive day. Also, a recent study published
in a neurology journal found that people who exercise or get active at least once a week have a longer lasting memory.
#2. Be Friendly
Stay humble and friendly. If you live with someone, or do volunteer work, you improve your memory by almost 25% presumably because you keep the mind stimulated by meeting and speaking to other people.
#3. Do Puzzles
One of my favorites! you can’t go into Maw-Maw’s home without seeing a word puzzle on the kitchen table. Those newspaper puzzles like Sudoku and crosswords improve your memory, brain speed, and vocabulary too! It’s not just for older people and it works just the same on young minds too. Plus, they’re fun and a great way to kill time if you commute to work by public transport.
#4 Lumosity
It’s a funny word but basically this is brain training technology. Basically, it is games that you play to help with memory, attention, lexibility, speed of processing and problem solving. The best thing about this is that you are playing games on your phone or laptop. you really will have no idea your brain is exercising. So, if you have a smart phone, you should have this.
your brain is very much like your body, if you look after it, you’ll receive years of healthy and happy living. Start today! until next time train hard and eat healthy.
