New You Anti-Aging Tip: Improve your brain performance and live a younger, longer life.

Speed, memory, problem solving, attention– these are all components of healthy brain function. Sadly, as we age, our core cognitive functions start to deteriorate. The average annual rate of cognitive decline is around 10%. Medical researchers have found that keeping your brain busy from childhood into old age may help stave off dementia, Alzheimer’s, and other mental disabilities. Doctors suggest engaging in some form of mental exercise twice a week for best results. This could range from puzzles to word games to math problems to just learning a new activity or hobby. Just like good physical health, good mental health also depends on active regular stimulation.
