Do a brain workout. Enhancing reasoning and memory abilities, learning a new language, for instance, might help delay or slow decline. A 10 year trial found that such training (though not computerized “brain games”) help increase cognitive processing speed and sharpen reasoning skills.
Exercise your body. In 2011, one study estimated that 1 million cases of Alzheimer’s disease in the U.S. were due to sedentary lifestyle. Several studies have found that physical activity, walking, weightlifting, yoga, or tai chi, for example, may delay or slow cognitive decline, but not prevent it.
Manage blood pressure. Lowering blood pressure dramatically reduces the risk of heart disease and stroke, which are risk factors for memory loss.
