Did you know that there are little things you can add to your daily routine and lifestyle to help mitigate the onset of dementia?
In the past, we have discussed what you can do to prevent dementia, but friendly reminders never hurt. New and novel learning is the key to keeping your memory sharp. There are many things you can do on your own, but if you are looking for motivation, SMART Brain Aging offers in-person and online cognitive therapy. Remember, think of your brain like a muscle, you need to use or lose it!
A few things you can do yourself to help mitigate the onset of dementia:
– Take alternative routes to work or common places to challenge the brain
– Learn a new language
– Learn a new instrument
– Eat healthily (avoid sweets and alcohol)
– Stay active (Tip: it helps to exercise at least 30 minutes a day and follow-up with cognitive exercises)
– Stay social by learning new card games with friends
– Interact with the younger generation (they can teach you new apps!)
Remember, it doesn’t matter if you are doing the activities right, the act of just doing them is beneficial!
