Brain Health - Joggin' for your Noggin'

The brain is like a muscle and as with any other muscle as the saying goes, “use it, or lose it.” It is commonplace to hear the benefits of physical health and most are aware that if one wants to maintain good physical health they must include exercise into their life at least 30 minutes a day, five days a week. The brain also needs exercise and good nutrition to maintain cognitive health and brain function. Brain health plays an important role in everything we do including heart rate, motor skills, reaction time, decision making, and mood. Loss in cognition impacts a person’s ability to complete normal everyday tasks decreasing their ability to stay independent. Now more than ever brain health is being emphasized and it is time for seniors and people of all ages to give as much focus to their brain health as to their overall physical health.
