Ways to keep your brain healthy:

Build Friendships – People who have larger supportive networks of friends have better cognitive function and lower rates of dementia

Do Something New – Sticking to routines puts your brain in a rut – engage in new experiences to stimulate your brain

Work the OTHER Side of Your Brain – If you work with numbers all day, take up a crafty hobby.

Enjoy Something – Engaging in something you genuinely enjoy releases dopamine in the brain which enhances learning and retention.

Move – Exercise promotes the formation of new connections between brain cells to improve memory and cognitive function and increases the size of the brain.

Eat Brain Food – Less red meat, more fish, vegetables, and whole grains. People who follow this “Mediterranean-style” diet have less risk of conditions that cause inflammation and other brain changes that impair thinking and memory.
