Eight ways to improve brain power

Today, neuroscience research shows that lifestyle has a tremendous impact on brain health. At any age you can re-wire and strengthen your brain. However, this can only happen when you engage in appropriate, stimulating and meaningful tasks.

Remaining curious and trying new things can help you stay sharp and lower your odds of dementia later in life. When it comes to brain health, always make wise health decisions. The amount of physical exercise that you do, the foods that you eat, how you manage your stress, the quality of your sleep and how you socialise – all these affect brain function, for better or for worse.
