3 Ways To Keep Your Brain Healthy

Nurture it: Are you familiar with the phrase, “Use it or lose it”? When it comes to your brain’s health, this saying applies. Neuroscience research shows that staying mentally active by reading, doing Sudoku daily or simply engaging in conversation can help prevent dementia.

Feed it: Eating a delicious Mediterranean-style diet that combines antioxidants and Omega-3 fatty acids can enhance your brain’s health. Try incorporating salmon and fatty fish, nuts and olive oil into your daily meals, and make fruit, vegetables and whole grains mainstays of your diet for ultimate brain health.

Protect it: Avoid drinking too much alcohol, smoking and excessive stress, and get plenty of sleep. By maintaining healthy living habits as you age, you will be able to keep your brain healthy for a long time.
