      Smart ways to keep your brain young!

      When it comes to looking younger, most of us take efforts to keep ourselves looking young as we age. It’s even more important to keep the brain young as you age. Here are some smart ways to keep your brain in good shape.

      Your diet matters

      Eat food that’s good for the brain.  A diet rich in fish, nuts, unsaturated oils such as olive oil, fruits, vegetables, and plant sources of proteins bring down the risks of cognitive impairment and dementia.

      Control B.P. and blood sugar

      When you start having high blood pressure in midlife, this increases your risk of cognitive decline as you age.  Keep it in check through regular exercise, avoiding stress, eating the right diet and limiting alcohol. When it comes to dementia, diabetes is a key risk factor. Prevent diabetes through regular exercise and diet. In case, you already have diabetes, control your sugar through lifestyle modifications and medication.

      Keep emotions in check

      When you go through a lot of anxiety, depression and so on, this contributes to cognitive decline in old age. Sleep deprivation also brings on similar results, make sure you get enough sleep.

      Have a strong social network

      Friends and family contribute to our sense of well-being.  Research has shown that strong social ties lower the risk of dementia, lower blood pressure and increase life expectancy.

      Exercise the body and brain

      Physical exercise helps the brain in diverse ways. It increases the heart rate and this pumps more oxygen to the brain. It also stimulates brain plasticity by pushing the growth of new connections between cells which improve brain function. The brain needs mental exercise too. Solving crossword puzzles, playing memory games and so on also contribute to keeping it young.  Learn something new, this helps improve your memory.
