Tips for keeping your mind sharp as you age

  • Brain-stimulating exercises are important for brain health, says the Alzheimer Association. Learning new skills, foreign languages, working on crossword puzzles, or playing math games can all help keep the mind active. Keep yourself curious and interested in continuing your education throughout your life.


  • According to a study published in the journal Neurology, reading and writing regularly in late life reduces memory decline by 32%.


  • Protecting your brain’s networks is possible through a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, and low in saturated fat and sugar. Foods such as fruits, vegetables, nuts, fatty fish, and yes, even a daily glass of wine can sharpen your mind, build new brain cells, and prevent mental decline.


  • Physical exercise has long been linked to brain benefits, specifically in learning and memory-related areas.


  • To function optimally, it is vital to get a good night’s sleep.


  • Staying social requires you to think fast and engage in conversation, which helps prevent mental decline. Socially active seniors have a lower risk of developing Alzheimer’s.
