To avoid the cognitive decline
To avoid cognitive decline
• Get your heart rate up:Aim to do aerobic exercise for 150 minutes per week;
• Change your eating patterns:Evidence shows that calorie restriction, intermittent fasting, and time-restricted eating are beneficial for the brain;
• Prioritize sleep:Aim for 7-9 hours, and nap if it suits you. Our need for sleep decreases as we age.
Adopting specific lifestyle behaviors can have a tangible effect on how well you age: activities like learning a new language, playing a musical instrument, taking part in aerobic exercise, and developing meaningful social relationships, can do wonders for your brain.
Vital parts of the brain tend to atrophy as we age. But brain scans of some 70-year-olds looks similar to those of 20 to 30-year-olds.
Cognitive decline is not inevitable as you age. Research points to healthy lifestyle habits that may keep the mind sharp while ageing.
We believe these benefits are a result of increased blood flow to your brain during exercise. It also tends to counter some of the natural reduction in brain connections that occur during aging, in effect reversing some of the problems.
Aim to exercise several times per week for 30–60 minutes. You can walk, swim, play tennis or any other moderate aerobic activity that increases your heart rate.
