Historically, I'm not a big fan of New Year's resolutions. How long do they last, anyway?
However, as the calendar flips over to another year, I'm thinking about the fact that on average, someone develops Alzheimer's disease every 7 seconds. Over the course of a day, a month, and then a year, that's a lot of people. And, likely someone you and I know.
While there's no cure and no sure-fire way to prevent Alzheimer's yet, there are ways to reduce the risk. They include:
- Physical Exercise- Exercise to Reduce Your Risk of Alzheimer's
- Eating- A Heart Healthy Diet Is Good for Your Brain, too
- Exercise Your Brain- Build Your Cognitive Reserve by Choosing a Few of These 12 Activities to Stretch Your Brain
Perhaps as we enter the new year, you and I might both consider adding one of these strategies to our resolution list. After all, what have we got to lose?
Have a safe and joy-filled new year!
