Lower Risk of Alzheimer’s

1497061112944I watched an interesting lecture on Alzheimer’s today (going through a course on understanding the brain) and learned that in addition to a healthy diet and exercise, studies have shown that “working your brain” can greatly lower your risk of getting Alzheimer’s and similar kinds of dementia later in life. Learning shouldn’t stop after high school or college! Your brain needs it, and it can have many benefits. Instead of hours of entertainment, try spending even just half of that time learning. Save some money by watching some DIY videos on fixing your car. Read some books or take classes to find ways to advance in your career. Find something that fascinates you and learn how it works. Learn. It’s good for you. 😉
