Using your brain is the best way to keep it healthy.
Why? A working brain has increased blood flow. Increased blood flow brings oxygen, nutrients and removes waste products. As your brain cells need oxygen to fully function, using your brain is a great way to increase its oxygen content.
Studies have shown that Alzheimer's is minimized by people who continually exercise their brain. I'll locate some when I get a chance.
So exercise your brain to keep it healthy!
Breathe deeply while reading a book on astrophysics. If that will put you to sleep, try listening to language tapes while driving in your car.
Does TV work? Unless you're watching Jeopardy or trying to solve the case with Dr House, I don't think so.
Of course, one must eat healthy as well for proper brain health. But let's take one step at a time!
For now, pick up a great book and try to learn something new. If your partner tells you to get up, tell them you're exercising!
