Ep. 20: The Brain Game: How to Make Positive Brain Changes Now
“When people are more socially active, they tend to manage stress better, their immune system works better, they tend to have fewer medical problems, and also their brains tend to work better.”
Successful aging is intimately related to brain health. Exercise, social activity, mental activity, brain-healthy diet, managing stress, and sleeping well are all very important not just for brain changes and brain health, but for the overall aging process.
In today’s episode, Dr. John Randolph discusses how brain health relates to successful aging, which day-to-day activities we can do to improve memory function, and what kinds of physical exercise are best for the brain. He reminds listeners that it’s never too late to make changes toward better brain health, and encourages us to take gradual steps toward this goal.
