The Best Ways to Keep Your Brain Young

The Best Ways to Keep Your Brain Young

Most of us accept the fact that we have to age, and some of us even look forward to the wisdom that we hope to gain through decades of living. But most would agree that keeping our brains as young as possible is key - even if our bodies will eventually break down we hope to keep our mental faculties as sharp as we can. But what really are the best ways to keep your brain young? We hope to provide some (well thought out) ideas!

Do Brain Pushups. You probably have already heard that doing crossword puzzles and other such mentally challenging games is good for your brain, but this can also include artistic activities such as writing or drawing. Anything that requires your brain to “stretch” is good for keeping your brain healthy. This also could include starting to learn a new language (no, you don’t have to become fluent to help your brain), or learning a new skill (such as knitting) or even learning a new game.

Do Regular Pushups. Or really any kind of physical activity, because more blood pumping through your body will also mean more blood pumping to your brain. Plus, exercise has been shown to increase the neural connections in your brain and also helps lower cholesterol, balance blood sugar levels, and reduce stress - all of which will help you think better.

Stay Free From Pain Naturally. Popping pain pills doesn’t help your brain at all (obviously) and can even do damage to your internal organs if taken long-term. If you suffer from chronic pain or want to prevent injuries, you’re really better off trying some services we offer at Yellow Gazebo such as chiropractic, physiotherapy, massage therapy or osteopathy. And while acupuncture can help too, it can even help do a lot more for your body that has tremendous benefits for your brain.

Reduce Stress, Increase Happiness. Happier people tend to score higher on cognitive tests, so it shouldn’t be any surprise that using our online counselling services will help keep your brain young. Remember: talk therapy isn’t just for people with serious mental health issues, it’s for regular people too, people who just need someone objective to listen to them and give them guidance, or to just give objective advice. Book a consult, you might be surprised at how your brain feels after!

Get Your Diet In Order. High blood pressure, bad cholesterol, high blood sugar levels… These are all contributors to poor brain function. Talk to one of our online naturopathic doctors for dietary recommendations catered to your individual needs and for improved brain function as well. Plus, they may be able to recommend some supplements that can help too.
