EXERCISE YOUR BRAIN – We all know by now that getting regular exercise can be an important part of minimizing the effects of aging, but did you know you can “exercise” your brain to keep your mind sharp as well? The brain is amazingly “plastic”. This means it has the ability to form new connections between brain cells and this ability is present at any age. To make the most of this ability, keep learning new things: learn a foreign language, read up on topics you find fascinating, work on challenging puzzles or start a new hobby. You can even try doing “old” things in “new” ways by taking a different way to work/errands or using your computer mouse in your “other” hand.
