How To Keep Your Brain Active At Any Age

There are 80 to 100 billion neurons in a human brain, leading to a complex network of hundreds of trillions of synapses that enable brain cells to communicate with each other. With all that complexity, the process of work of our mind remains a mystery. One of the biggest impacts of aging is the thinning of the frontal cortex that contributes to the formation of memories and concentration. To keep your mind clear and memory sharp, you should follow simple steps.  

Move. Yes, it’s that simple. As we age, our brain cells, or neurons, lose the tree-branch-like connections between them. Quite literally, over time, our brain cells loose their heft. Aerobic exercise is one of the best ways to keep your brain strong.

Eat Well. No, not those Flaming Hot Cheetos that stain your fingers orange for a week…We’re talking about stuff like fruits and vegetables, which are packed with antioxidants, as are some beans, whole grains, nuts, and spices. 

Exercise Your Mind. Working on a jigsaw puzzle or a LEGO, learning a new language, or even playing ping-pong can keep your brain young and supple.

Keep Calm & Carry On. Did that make you tense? If so, work on keeping it cool. It will only degrade your memory and limit your ability to learn. Besides, worrying doesn’t solve problems, it creates more.

Laugh. Obviously, don’t force it, or maybe do… or maybe don’t be such a stick-in-the-mud and enjoy the lighter side of life. Your gray matter will thank you for years to come.

Meditate. Recollecting a positive emotion or imagining a pleasurable scene during meditation quickly changes your heart rate variability towards coherence. Balanced and harmonious heart rhythm affects the emotional state and your brain, creating stability and signaling that everything in the body is working well. The benefits of mindfulness meditation include psychological well-being and alleviation of symptoms such as anxiety, depression, eating disorders, insomnia, or chronic pain. All of these lead to quality life and longevity.

Traditional productivity books—written by men—barely touch the tangle of cultural pressures that women feel when facing down a to-do list. How to Get Sh*t Done will teach you how to zero in on the three areas of your life where you want to excel, and then it will show you how to off-load, outsource, or just stop giving a damn about the rest.

  1. Nice article…Great writing.

  2. I still lack basic knowledge, this is problematic because without basic knowledge I can’t learn complicated stuff.

    Well, perhaps I am as dumb as a log, but I can’t agree that all this will help. I believe that the only thing that will help your brain to stay active, is to use it. For instance, I am a retired plumber. The last time I tried to do it on my birthday last year and I flooded all my kitchen. My wife was so pissed with me that she sent me to https://jooble.org/jobs/Greenville%2C-NC and told me that next time I need to do something with water at home, better I summon a plumber guy or better two. Maybe she’s right because the cost of a plumber is incomparably less than cost of kitchen repair.

  4. I with my colleagues from work delighted with the presentation of your material.
    I am professional writer and I want to say thank you for these fantastic article.

    You know what? If we speak of using the brain, you need to start investments as soon as possible. You need to learn how to trade Bitcoin, for God’s sake. Use Bitcoin mixing service as well, to protect it from any curious examination by hackers and concentrate on maximizing your profit. But I really liked your tips.
