Brain Health and Day 9 Stitches

~~


It is the time of year to not only give your home


and your body a tune-up


Why not Spring-Clean your brain while you are at it!!


The three cornerstones of better brain health are:


Good Nutrition


Regular Exercise


Keeping your Brain Stimulated

Keep some of these things in mind to assist:

Omega-3 fatty acids, which are found in seafood, canola oil and green leafy vegatables

They are known to improve mood, and cognitive focus

(and really, who couldn't use a little more focus)

Secondly, another brain healthy habit is

to eat breakfast regularly to help sustain mental energy.

Avoid foods that are high in sugar, trans-fat and saturated fats.

Exercise is crucial for brain health.

Like good old nutrition, exercise can turn on

the stimulating production of healthy protein in the brain.

If you can, exercise amidst nature,

as this has been shown to improve mood even more.


Thirdly, mental stimulation,

look for ways to challenge your memory

by adding a variety of brain challenges to your day

games, puzzles, learning a foreign language

and of course artistic endeavours

help to improve memory and congitive centres.


I hope this gives you something

to think about...

see..were starting already

That was painless....keep it up!!
