To keep our muscles in shape, we need to exercise them this also applies to the brain muscle

To keep our muscles in shape, we need to exercise them this also applies to the brain muscle. Yaakov Stern, PhD, professor of clinical neuropsychology in New York, says that people with no social life or boring jobs are more likely to develop some form of dementia as they age.

Mental, physical, and social exercises are imperative for maintaining cognitive function. By challenging our brains daily, more blood flows into different regions of the brain, forming new connections. Think of it as mental jumping jacks. Try something new learn another language, solve a word puzzle, tackle some Sudoku, join a book club or other social group, or engage in a different exercise activity, such as tai chi.

For those worried about memory loss or already experiencing it, there is a program called Cognitive Retention Therapy™ (CRT), which stimulates and reinforces existing memories. CRT helps stroke and dementia patients and those with early to midstage Alzheimer's. The program technique is noninvasive and can be used with or without medication.

The new strategies taught to help recall important information are also beneficial to individuals who are merely interested in maintaining a healthy brain to lead a connected and fulfilling life. For more information, visit gencaresolutions.com.
