Our minds often are cluttered with lists of things to do, challenges in the home or workplace, relationship issues, and many more. To keep memory loss at bay, remember to make healthy food choices, do regular exercise and stay active.
Eat a diet rich in fruits and vegetables. These contain antioxidants called flavonoids that protect and nourish brain cells. Flavonoids can reduce damage to the brain and improve cognitive impairment. Although recent research supports that an intake of flavonoid-rich foods plays a vital role in reducing the risk of developing dementia, researchers feel more studies are required to make any sort of nutritional recommendation.
Exercise your mind. Keep the mind healthy by learning new things. If you continue to challenge yourself, your brain continues to grow. Challenging the brain with mental exercises can maintain and stimulate increased cognitive ability.
Reduce stress. Stress contributes to memory lapses. Regular moderate exercise, like walking, benefits the brain as well as the entire body.
Be socially active. Nurture family and friend connections and maintain an active social lifestyle.
