Tired of doing crossword puzzles to stimulate your mind in attempt to prevent dementia. There might be a new, more simple approach to ward of the dreaded condition. Routine pleasure, such as a walk around the block, reading a good novel, or a game of simple checker with the grandchildren are all activities that can help you defend against mental decline according to Prevention.com. In one study from Rush University Medical Center, those who regularly read, write, or play games shown “healthier densities of white matter” than those who didn’t. Another study conducted by UCLA, those who are active are much more likely to have a healthy level of gray matter. While white matters transmit information, gray matters control muscles, memory speech and senses. Healthy amount of both help seniors achieve optimal brain health, thus a higher likelihood in preventing dementia.
