Tips For Keeping Your Brain Sharp

As we age, so too does our brain. Everyone knows that physical exercise helps keep the bones and muscles in shape, but did you know that exercising your brain can help keep it in shape also? Some studies suggest that regular brain exercise can help keep your mind sharp which could potentially help to lessen the severity of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.

Brain exercise is all about challenging your brain to think beyond your normal every-day routines and activities. In other words, doing something your brain isn’t used to doing, like changing hands to do certain tasks (if you are right handed, use your left hand), or getting dressed in the dark (just make sure you put everything on correctly when you turn on the lights!). This helps the brain to form new neural connections. Exercising your brain is said to also induce more blood flow to the brain which can be beneficial as well.


Attitude of Gratitude

This month we give heartfelt thanks to all the donors and families over the last 14 years that have given of themselves to help others. Donating your body to science is such a tremendous gift and without it many of the medical advances that we all take for granted would not have been possible.
