Some of us may be young and think that Alzheimer and Dementia are light years away, but it’s never too early to protect our noggin. And for those of us who are older, this may presently hit home. Regardless, research shows that we can assist our brain and reduce our likelihood of acquiring these diseases. Let’s keep it simple this month. If you struggle with any of these, what will you do about it? Can you commit to action in the present instead of waiting until it’s too late? If we don’t have a healthy brain and body, what kind of life are we living?
- Lose weight (or try not to gain it in the first place)
- Maintain your blood sugar
- Exercise 30-60 minutes DAILY
- Eat a clean, healthy diet
- Control your blood pressure and cholesterol (damaged blood vessels affect the part of the brain used for memory and learning)
- Stay mentally and socially active (use the brain or lose it)
- Check your hearing (apparently hearing loss affects cognitive thinking due to brain atrophy and the brain not getting a clear message)
- Get enough sleep
- Eat seafood and berries
- Get vitamin D
- Supplements don’t seem to help so keep it natural and live a clean, healthy, happy, social, delicious life full of movement!
