Flex Your Brain Muscles, Stave Off Dementia

Research strongly suggests that regular, intellectually stimulating activity can slow cognitive decline and reduce the likelihood of dementia and/or Alzheimer’s Disease.

How To Strengthen Your Neural Pathways

Mounting evidence suggests we can have an impact on the probability of getting diseases such as Alzheimer’s and dementia by how we use our brain today. Examples of ways to build and strengthen neural pathways so they are less susceptible to disease include:

  • Attending lectures
  • Doing crossword puzzles
  • Participating in discussion groups
  • Reading the newspaper
  • Playing a musical instrument
