The effects of aging on mental health leads to some brain conditions like dementia. Studies have worked out to make the causes clear and give us the solutions to improve this condition.Recently, experts believe the answer could be as simple as keeping your brain active.
Accordingly, you may active your brain with many choices such as learning more, playing more and “power” your brain more. However, that doesn’t mean rushing out and buying expensive computer programs or dozens of Sudoku books.
Daily activities have a big impact on one’s tendency of suffering from dementia or memory loss. The more experiences you take everyday, the lower risk of dementia development is. Because of the experiences some of people have over a lifetime, their brain can better cope with brain aging.
Professors recommended that there are many activities which can help to keep your brain active to reduce the development of dementia such as greater educational attainment, higher occupational attainment, leisure activities or exercises.
The explanation stays on the help of growing new brain cells from those daily experiences.
However, professors finally do not affirm that keep your brain active with educational activities or exercises can detect your risk of Alzheimer’s or dementia (as this is a certain sign of aging). These experiences, in fact, would lower the risk.
Further study should be conducted to have an exact answers for the link of cognitive reserve and some of challenging activities.
