A word of caution: You can adopt all the right habits and still have problems with the memory or get disease such as Alzheimer’s. Scientists don’t know if lifestyle changes can keep you from getting it  but these habits are good for brain and body. Try it to keep mind and body in healthy balance.

Spend time with family and friends.

Interacting with other people stimulates the brain. Not only that but also reach out to new people. Join a community or volunteer. Dance classes or hiking groups where we are joining to do it together is even better.

Challenge Yourself.

When it comes to brain power, it’s “use it or lose it.” Do puzzles, learn new card games or try a new sport. Not only that but also try to do the same things in different ways. Seek out new experiences. Take a class. When you walk or drive, take different routes.

Focus on heart-healthy food.

Follow a Mediterranean diet. Eat plenty of whole grains, fruits and vegetables, plus fish, nuts and olive oil.

Exercise Regularly.

When you get up and move your brain gets more blood and makes new brain cells. Exercise also lowers your chance of developing dementia (serious memory loss), heart problems, stroke and diabetes. We know many of you would say ‘but what if I don’t like sports?’’ In this case pick something you enjoy and can do it over time. If you still will struggle than find a partner to do it with you. Start from whatever is accessible for you at that moment as that will change with the time. This way you have no excuses to not to do it.

Be safe.

Wear a helmet if you do things like bike riding, skiing or motorcycle riding. Head injuries can damage the brain. Don’t forget to buckle your seat belt when you drive. Smoking and drinking can also raise your chances of developing serious memory loss of other brain diseases so if you smoke, quit. Think how to life much healthier and happier live.
