Many diseases adversely affect our brain health later in life such as Alzheimer's, dementia and Parkinsons.  Perhaps we can help by maintaining good oxygen levels and doing activites which activate our brain daily, like computer games, sports, meditation, conversations, team board games, reading, writing, exercises.  Dr. David Barczyk, D.C. addresses 5 activities which may help save you and loved ones from future brain diseases which are aggravated by inactivity

1. Meditate:  Meditation has been shown to increase IQ and decrease stress.  Meditate 10 minutes a day. No excuses. (If you’ve never meditated before and are too afraid at this point to ask how to do it, the answer is simple to give, but difficult to do. To meditate means to clear your brain. Basically, think about nothing. If you’ve never tried it, you may be surprised at what a challenge such a simple seeming task can be. Stay in the struggle and do it. One tip is to little envision chasing your thoughts away to leave your brain clear.)

2. Listen to music or better yet learn to play music.

3. Exercise:  Walk. Bike. Swim. Exercise increases oxygen. Your brain loves oxygen.

4. Change your environment:  Look for ways to struggle. Take a different route to work. If you usually go left, go right. Do something different. Change your routine.

5. Think positive
