Tips for PROTECTING YOUR MEMORY
It’s not uncommon for some older adults to be concerned about memory loss or a decline in cognitive function. However, many individuals well into their 70s perform just as well as young adults. To help look after your brain as you age, try to:
• Avoid drugs, alcohol and exposure to chemicals such as pesticides and heavy metals.
• Use it or lose it when it comes to staying stimulated and interested in things.
• Get exercise to help improve oxygenation of the brain which is vital for synaptic formation.
• Avoid stress which can have detrimental effects on key areas of the brain.
