Our BRAIN HEALTH is more vital than any other function of our body. To lose contact with everyday reality is a living death. Whether you are calculating multivariate statistics, or simply trying to stay alert during a conversation or a long meeting - keeping your mind sharp, matters. Luckily, the steps to protecting your mind can be very easy and, it is combined with exercising your brain. Your brain is a thinking organ that learns and grows by interacting with the world through perception and action. Mental stimulation improves brain function and actually protects against cognitive decline, as does physical exercise. The human brain is able to continually adapt and rewire itself. Even in old age, it can grow new neurons. Severe mental decline is usually caused by disease, whereas most age-related losses in memory or motor skills simply result from inactivity and a lack of mental exercise and stimulation. In other words, use it or lose it. Want to learn more, tune in.
