We’re at the beginning of the A to Z Blogging Challenge.
We commence the month by looking at
According to studies, our brains become less and less active as we age. (Most of us in our second half of life don’t need studies! We know our brains are becoming less active on a regular basis.
“Brain aging is much more about our habits than our age”
according to Dr Daniel Amen, a psychiatrist and world expert in the area of brain development and damage. Over the next month, we’re going to look at different ways we can improve our lives as well as improve our minds. Obviously, if our minds are sharp, our bodies are likely to improve as well.
Much of these posts will refer to some of the videos on YouTube by this fascinating speaker, so when you get the chance go ahead and watch some of them for yourself.
We are going to look at 26 different actions we can take to improve our lives and our minds.
Follow along with me, and give some of these suggestions a go, and let’s see if we can all have improved lives and minds by the end of April!
So the first thing I want you to take home from this theme is that you can improve your life. And you can improve your mind. No matter what your age is today, you don’t have to sit back and “get old” in your mind, and often that will improve your life all round.
What about Alzheimer’s?
Am I saying there’s no such thing as Alzheimer’s? Definitely not. But what Dr. Amen says is that many of the diagnoses of Alzheimer’s are not that at all. That most dementia is not as a result of aging or senility. And better still, it can often be reversed.Click To Tweet
This is good news to me, as one generation back in my husband’s family, almost the entire (large) generation were all diagnosed as Alzheimer’s. They were all mentally “not at home” when it came to their memories. Scary stuff.
Knowing this can be hereditary is not happy news for me. I may add my husband has a better memory than I have, and most of the current generation are fine. We’ll read more about Alzheimer’s, dementia, and their happy companions when we get to G – Genetics!
Do you have people with poor memories in your family that blame it on their age?
