There is a lot we do not know about how to keep our brain healthy but we do know that what is good for our body is good for our brain.
A few simple actions can help a lot to promote brain health:
- eating a healthy diet
maintaining a healthy weight
stopping smoking (if you smoke)
making sure to keep your blood pressure at a healthy level
- getting enough sleep, including a day time nap if you need one
- keeping socially active with friends and family
- keeping your mind busy: learn new things; hobbies; volunteering; clubs; gardening; read books; solve puzzles; learn a language
