Exercise for the mind is just as important as exercise for the body

It is important to maintain intellectual wellness throughout our life. It will help to reduce cognitive decline and prevent dementia.

Remember the old adage: “Use it or lose it”

We must continue to use our mind actively (exercising the mind) to prevent it from suffering decline.

There are many ways to engage your mind, some simple, some complex.

Reading is the oldest and probably the best brain exercise that you can do virtually anywhere.

Play brain games such as Mastermind, Trivia or Crime Scene

Explore the arts; they will engage your brain and spirit

Attend a course or talk

Write down your thoughts and life stories – they are great exercises for the brain and also help you to express feelings (and improve your emotional wellness)
