"'Research on animals and humans suggests mentally challenging activities such as playing bridge, learning a new language or even blogging might help build new connections in the brain,' says Molly Wagster at the National Institute on Aging, part of the National Institutes of Health."
Who knew that blogging could help the mind stay healthy? Well, I am doing my part to keep my little brain active, and I hope in some small measure I am helping others out there keep their minds a bit healthy by giving them something to read. By the way, some other tips from the article of things that could help:
- Stay in touch with other people. Correspond, be involved. Join a book club, socialize.
- Have a hobby.
P.S. Yes, I know, I don't always have the most substantial reading material in this blog, but this one is the fun one, well, now and then. You want the serious stuff, go to the other one.
