Running, jogging and aerobic exercises also help the brain. If you can’t take out time to exercise, a simple walk will do.
Exercise is far better for the brain than sitting and solving brain games, which, according to new research, doesn’t help as much as previously thought.

We consume a lot of disposable information every day. Reading the news, or social media, makes our brains overloaded with irrelevant stuff we don’t need.
This also includes past memories that are no longer serving us. Too much information clouds your judgement and decision making.
Drinking tea is good for the brain, helping regulate the age-related decline. It also strengthens the brain connections, the neural network inside the brain, making information processing more efficient.
Even coffee is said to be good to ward off the onset of Alzheimer’s disease.
Consuming low levels of alcohol is associated with a lesser risk of dementia. The key is ‘low dose’. Heavy drinking leads to cognitive decline.
If your alcohol intake is well within limits and occasional, it will improve overall brain health.
Anything that is bad for the heart is bad for the brain, including smoking cigarettes, or having a sedentary lifestyle, or having diabetes.
Your blood sugar, body mass index, diet and blood pressure all contribute to the health of your heart, and your brain.
Heart disease and strokes are the number one cause of death worldwide. However, almost 80 percent of all cases of cardiovascular disease is preventable.
Making some changes to your lifestyle can lower the risk of heart disease.
Reclaiming our power over our stressful lives requires emotional energy management for intentional stress relief. We must release the standard go-tos which, surprisingly, do more damage than good. This includes anything that stifles our emotions or keeps us distracted, preventing us from dealing with feelings of stress.
Avoiding our feelings is culturally popular and acceptable, but ineffective at relieving stress and usually involves practices that further deplete our mood and energy. Facing our emotions directly and deliberately allows us to achieve unfeigned stress relief.
