Age is relative and doesn’t matter a whole lot unless you lost your brain because you didn’t use it.
—Arlene R. Taylor PhD
Results from research studies continue to accumulate. It appears that most people can actually slow down their rate of brain aging and may be able to extend the number of years during which they retain good brain function. It’s all about dedicated and consistent stimulation of the brain.
Remember that the type of brain stimulation involved here doesn’t include sitting in front of the TV. According to recommendations by Dr. Amir Soas of Case Western Reserve University Medical School in Cleveland, “Cut back on TV, because when you watch television, your brain goes into neutral.... Read, read, read. Do crossword puzzles. Pull out the chessboard or Scrabble. Learn a foreign language or a new hobby....”
Brain Aerobics Exercises provide options for brain stimulation and can help you obtain needed mental stimulation. As with muscles, when it comes to brain function it’s use it or lose it. Thirty minutes of challenging mental exercise every day is a key age-proofing strategy. Use these exercises as part of your daily mental exercise. Try creating some yourself and exchange them with friends. Go for it! You’ll be glad you did and so will everyone you know!
