It’s never too soon, or too late, to make changes that will maintain or improve your brain and body’s health. Recent studies also suggest that attention span and memory can be improved by doing basic daily cognitive exercises and training.
Regularly exercising the brain may help reduce the risk of dementia and/or delay symptoms. For example, depression, low levels of education and social isolation are known to negatively impact brain function but can respond positively to brain stimulating activities.
Activities that stimulate your brain don’t have to be difficult or time-consuming. You can incorporate simple brain exercises into your daily routine to give your brain a new experience or workout every day. Choosing activities that you enjoy will also help to keep you motivated.
