Furthermore, continuing your education in any stage of life will help reduce your risk of cognitive decline and dementia. For example, join a Lifelong Learning Program, take a class at a local college, community center or online. Keep your brain active from reading to crosswords puzzles, think creatively or strategically, but keep it working.Prevent Injury: The risk of head injury comes with just about everything we do. Did you know that a fall from a height greater than your own could put you a risk for a head injury? Take steps to prevent fall risks. Daily, most of us that are still working, or are active, run the risk of injury with automobile acci- dents. Wear your seat belt. Not only is it the law but it can reduce your risk of head injury and ultimately your risk of cognitive decline. Wearing a helmet can prevent your risk of injury from motor vehicle accidents, sports injuries, mili- tary action, and more. Avoid the injury and reduce your risk of dementia.Support Your Mental Health: The mind and body needs adequate rest to function well. Conditions such as stress, anxiety, depression, or other mental health concerns can affect your sleep as well as your daily functioning. Medical advice and/or treatment may be valuable in reducing your risk of further cogni- tive decline.Fun with Friends: Stay socially engaged. Participate in activities that are meaningful to you. Maybe it’s with fam- ily, participate in activities at a senior center, join a club, volunteer. There are so many ways for you to get engaged.If you are having difficulty hearing then it’s time to get it checked, and it may be time for hearing aids. Do not let hearing difficulties be the reason that you with- draw from social activity.Feed Your Body and Your Brain:While the Lancet Commission did not address diet, a study published by the Journal of Alzheimer’s and Dementia found that the MIND diet may staveoff the onset of memory loss. Research completed at Chicago’s Rush University Medical Center also supports this.You may be surprised to read that 20-30 percent of your caloric intake supports brain function. It only makes sense then that what we eat could be very important in how our brain functions.In an observational study funded by the National Institute on Aging, elderly people who rigorously followed the MIND diet were 7.5 years younger cog- nitively during a period of roughly five years than those with the poorest adher- ence.Your lifestyle choices can have an impact. Consider ways to live healthier and more engaged, and to reduce or eliminate foods and activities that you know to not be beneficial for your overall health.
