Wednesday Workshop – Sustaining a Healthy Brain for All Ages
Hello and welcome to Wednesday Workshop. When more than 5 million people in America are living with Alzheimer’s disease, you may be asking yourself what can you do to maintain a healthy brain. Since there is no cure for Alzheimer’s, it’s a good idea to start adopting a healthy lifestyle. Today, were here to give you tips for sustaining a healthy brain for all ages.
- Healthy Eating
What you eat fuels your brain and body so make sure it’s something beneficial. Try to incorporate some brain-healthy foods into your diet. Foods for the brain include: leafy greens, nuts, berries, whole grains and certain fish.
- Stay Active
It’s important to engage your body in cardiovascular exercise. Physical activity increases blood flow to the brain and body so get up and get out. Even a daily stroll in the park can be very helpful.
Isolation and depression play a big role in mental decline so stay connected with friends and family. Other ways to stay social include joining clubs, picking up a new hobby or attending local events.
- Train your Brain
Try crossword puzzles, sudoku and/or brain games. These types of games are really good at keeping your brain active and engaged.
