Four Ways to Maintain Brain Function As You Age
19 OCT 2022
If you’re like a lot of people, you probably won’t think much about brain health until you reach an age where it becomes more of a concern. As we grow older, starting around age 60 or 70, certain parts of the brain shrink, especially those related to learning and other complex mental activities. Synaptic connections and neurotransmitter production decline, meaning that communication between neurons may not be as effective as it once was.
However, it’s never too early to start taking care of this most vital organ. Whatever your age, there are habits you can cultivate to support and maintain brain function, and, according to research, even ways to reverse aging by encouraging stem cell production.
- Exercise: just 30 minutes of exercise a day can help reduce brain cell loss!
- Maintain your social life: studies have shown that people who have good social ties actually live longer.
- Use all of your senses: keep your eyes and ears sharp. It is important for your senses to function properly in order for your brain to process your surroundings.
- Keep learning: just like a muscle, your brain needs exercise every day to stay healthy. Take on a new hobby, read, do puzzles, anything that stimulates mental activity.
