Exercise can ward off dementia & alzheimer’s according to the latest studies. We can grow new brain cells each & every day with practise. The brain is in a constant state of change, recharging itself, finding new neuronic pathways as it faces challenges.

The brains plasticity is a key factor in the study of degenerative diseases of the brain, so like any other organ or muscle, it must be exercised.

Exercising the brain by learning a new language increases its plasticity, opening up new neuron pathways. Physical exercise of the body helps keep the brain fit. Standing up more often moving your body every 10 minutes, using your other hand to do regular tasks, puzzles & visualisation exercises can increase its capacity!

Reading books and creative writing are habits to maintain as we age. Travelling to new places stimulates senses. Trying to focus on our peripheral vision keeps the mind young. Curiosity & a keen sense of purpose can help stave off the Alzheimer’s. Learning anything new opens new regions of the brain. Hand & eye co-ordination exercises or disciplines like yoga, Qi Gong & martial arts are all weapons against degeneration as is meditation.

The time is now to develop habits that enhance the mind & keep you young.
