5 Steps for Brain Health

Preserving physical health as we age is undoubtedly critical, but let's not neglect preservation of mental health. 5 quality steps to keep your brain in shape are the following:
  1. Eat a brain healthy diet (plenty of Omega 3's and fruits/veggies)
  2. Stay mentally healthy (learn new skills such as dancing; learn a new language, practice crossword puzzles and take classes)
  3. Stay social
  4. Get plenty of sleep (how often do I rant about this?!?!)
  5. Manage stress (incorporate meditation into your day)
