Even in this fitness crazy age, most of us usually forget one of the most important organs – the brain. Just like the muscles in your body, your brain doesn’t just need nutrition but exercise to stay in shape and function efficiently. You see, memory loss is not just about forgetting where you left your keys, it can get very scary. From forgetting where you live to never leaving the house unaccompanied.
But this doesn’t have to happen to you.
Stimulate your brain with artistic activities
According to a study published by the American Academy of Neurology, researchers discovered that people who engaged in artistic activities were 73% less likely to have memory problems.
Study author, Rosebud Roberts, explained that the study supports the idea that engaging the mind may protect neurons or the building blocks of the brain from dying. It can also stimulate growth of new neurons or help recruit new neurons to maintain cognitive activities in old age.
So why wouldn’t you spend a bit of time engaging the mind?
