Alzheimer’s Prevention Tip #3
Socializing is good for brain health. A few days ago I wrote that puzzles and brain games are good to stimulate your brain in an effort to prevent Alzheimer’s disease. Being social in another top way to ‘exercise’ your brain.
It works on several levels too. Not only does it challenge your brain to think when you are interacting, visiting, discussing things with friends, but it involves multiple parts of the brain. Interacting with more than one, doing other things, whether eating, drinking, playing cards, etc. is another form of multitasking.
Gathering with Friends
On top of that it usually lifts one’s mood. Being cheerful, smiling, and laughing with friends pushes away depression.
So remember that, the next time you are invited to a party. It may be one more reason to attend! Get together with friends, go to your church or neighborhood socials, have coffee with the guys. Try to connect with others more often, in a variety of situations. It will actually help keep your brain stronger.
