Exercises for a Healthy Brain

According to Dr. Robert Bender, director of the Johnny Orr Memory Center and Healthy Aging Institute, the human brain continually wants to learn new things. He adds that prolonged mental inactivity can cause the brain to atrophy over time.
Besides physical activity and nutrition, mental exercise is recommended to strengthen brain function, prevent brain disease, and improve a person’s overall well-being. Listed below are some brain exercises that enhance brain health:
1. Test your memory by memorizing simple things like grocery items.
2. Learn something new, like a foreign language or a musical instrument.
3. Practice mental maths.
