People are often surprised because many of the habits which support a healthy body are also essential for a healthy brain. Research published in Alzheimer’s & Dementia: The Journal of the Alzheimer’s Association, offers 10 tips on healthy lifestyle changes that may reduce the risk of cognitive decline:
- Break a sweat.
- Hit the books.
- Butt out.
- Follow your heart.
- Heads up!
- Fuel up right.
- Catch some Zzz’s.
- Take care of your mental health.
- Buddy up.
- Stump yourself.
Alzheimer’s is the sixth-leading cause of death. Currently, 5.7 million people in the U.S., are living with the only major disease without a prevention, treatment or cure.
Alzheimer’s Association researchers remind people that the steps they take to ensure a healthy heart and body are keys to maintaining a vibrant brain, and may provide some defense.
