3 Tips to Age Well and Keep Your Brain Healthy l The Friday 3: August 27, 2021


Happy Friday!


Want to age well and keep your brain healthy? Here are 3 shares from neuroscientist Daniel L. Levitin’s book: Successful Aging: A Neuroscientist Explores the Power and Potential of Our Lives.


1)

According to Levitin, to age well follow healthy practices of diet, sleep and exercise. The health benefits of eating one particular diet (Mediterranean, Keto, Paleo) are not statically or research proven. Levitin suggests eliminating processed foods and eating a variety of foods at the same time every day to maximize absorption of nutrients.


2)

Cultivate a mindset of curiosity, openness to new experiences, and resilience.


3)

Associate with new people, especially younger people as you get older. Keep your social networks going - not social media contacts, but real people contacts. These real life connections are a big part of brain health and happiness.
