Everyone knows that exercising is important to keep our bodies healthy, but what about our brains? Just like the body, the brain needs to be exercised in order to stay optimally healthy. Here are a few easy tips to exercise your brain so it stays sharp for years to come. 

Physical Activity

Doesn’t it seem like everything health related comes back to physical activity? That’s because it does! Being physically active helps boost brainpower and keeps you more alert. So instead of watching a 30-minute TV program, try going for a walk or a job.

Sleep

Getting enough sleep is key to keeping your brain alert and healthy. When a person doesn’t get enough sleep the brain becomes sluggish and struggles to keep up with daily tasks. Furthermore, it has been reported that a long-term lack of sleep can lead to a decline in mental ability, as a person gets older. So get that beauty rest! 

Eat Fish

Omega-3 Fatty Acids are important for promoting brain health and fish are full of them! Try incorporating fish into your diet once a week to boost the amount of omega-3’s you get and help to keep your brain healthy.

Do Some Puzzles

Doing fun puzzles like Sudoku and crosswords can help exercise and train your brain. This helps you to have a healthy functioning brain throughout life and helps prevent cognitive decline.
