4 Steps to Keeping our Brain Healthy
True healthy living isn’t possible without a healthy brain. This includes giving the brain the nutrients it needs as well as mentally/psychological health. Often it’s next to impossible to get the rest of your body on track before you get your head right. Here are 4 ways to keeping your brain healthy.
1. Bond with people
Being social with others requires our brains to be extra engaged. During social interactions we are reading body language and facial expressions, and showing empathy for people. Connecting with others also results in positive emotions, which fills the brain with chemicals that keep it healthy.
2.Stay physically active
As people age the brain can shrink. Though in those who regularly exercise this change does not happen. Exercises helps keep brain tissue healthy and increases the connections in the brain. It also helps keep neurons healthy and alive.
Want to reduce your changes of Alzheimer’s by 60 percent? Eat more fish and regularly intake Omega-3 fish oils. Eating fish at least once a week slows cognitive decline by 10 percent.
4. Work it out
Treat the brain like any other muscle. To keep it strong or to make it even stronger you have to exercise it. Constantly challenge your mind to learn more and grow. Learn new skills, take classes, learn a new language, read more books, etc. It all goes a long way to helping the brain stay fit.
The brain is a vital part of the body that often gets neglected by fitness buffs. We tend to focus on working out the rest of our bodies and forgetting about the most important organ of all. Follow these steps to make sure you keep the mind in mind while living a healthier, happier life.
