The Top 5 Ways to Keep Your Brain Sharp

The Top Five Ways to Keep Your Brain Sharp

Someone recently asked a neurologist to name the top five things we should be doing to keep our brains sharp as we get older. Here’s what he said . . .

  1. Keep socializing. You’re less likely to suffer memory loss as you get older if you have a social life. So pick hobbies that involve other people, not just stuff you do by yourself.
  2. Challenge your brain. Read, play games, and do crossword puzzles. And try something NEW every once in a while, like learning a new instrument or another language.
  3. Don’t stress out too much. A ton of studies have found that too much stress can have long-term effects on your memory and your decision-making skills.
  4. Exercise. It improves blood flow to your brain, which helps you stay focused. And it also helps with memory.
  5. Stop eating empty calories. Your brain works best when your diet is high in protein, healthy fats, and complex carbohydrates, which you can get from whole grains.

And a new study that came out this week found that even if you’re not overweight, cutting calories can improve your mood, your quality of sleep, and your libido.
