Well, it’s hard to believe it’s already September! Summer is essentially gone, and now we’re all back to school. Some of you may even be planning your family holiday vacations.
Remember to always schedule time for your health, both physical and mental exercise. Speaking of exercise, it’s time to exercise your brain, form new brain pathways, build your cognitive reserve, challenge yourself, engage in new learning! Become a lifelong learner, and take advantage of your brain or neuroplasticity skills through new learning. We are never too old for new learning or too young to begin building our cognitive reserves! Let’s try some anagrams today. Create as many new words as you can from the following words.
Go grab a healthy snack-blueberries, apples, walnuts, almonds, veggie sticks, dark chocolate, paired with a healthy beverage-green tea, water, red wine. I just had some walnuts and peach green tea. Ready?
Remember to exercise your body as well! Physical exercise helps pump blood throughout your body-including your brain. Studies have shown that by walking just 35 minutes a day at least 3 days/week it’s possible to increase the size of your hippocampus, which may correlate to improved memory skills! So, get up, leash that dog and take a walk! Be sure to drink plenty of water, too! Your brain and body need water for optimal function. Here’s to your health!
