As you age, your body changes and so is the brain. There are certain things which will help you to improve your brain health and slow the memory decline, lowering the risk of brain diseases like Alzheimer’s and dementia. Maintaining good health of the brain is crucial for the overall well-being, to prevent mental illness, endocrine disorders and other medical conditions.
1. Stay well hydrated and breathe
In order to support your brain, you need to stay well hydrated. If you experience headaches, brain fog or dizziness in the afternoon, it could be a sign that you didn’t get enough water during the day. You need even more water if you work on a computer and sit all day in an office. Breathing is also important as if your breathing is too shallow, the oxygen reaching the brain might not be enough, try to breathe in a calm manner or do some breathing exercises for several minutes daily.
2. Get enough sleep
The body is recovering when you sleep and that applies for the brain even more. This is the only time when the brain should have some rest from processing all this information coming from the outside world. Also all the toxins and cellular metabolic waste is taken out of the brain and into the bloodstream to get rid off later on. In order to feel energized and motivated in the morning, you need to have enough and quality sleep during the night. There are ways to set a sleeping routine and improve the quality of your sleep. Seven to eight hours of consecutive sleep will give your brain the time to recover and to store your memories properly.
Staying active and exercising regularly is very beneficial for the brain. The moderate movements like low intensity exercises, walking, swimming etc., will improve the blood flow to the brain, will tone all the muscles in the body and will support cardiovascular health. Research shows that regular exercising keeps good coordination and improves cognitive health in patients, lowering the risks of mental and brain diseases. It will boost your mood and induce the production of some hormones which will prevent depression and anxiety.
4. Learn new things – stay mentally active
Never stop learning new things if you want your brain to be healthy and young. In most cases, the mentally active people are protected from dementia as the brain is engaged in learning new skills and creating new neural pathways. Even reading books is a hobby that will keep your brain engaged and will improve your brain health. It is not necessary to go to school or university in order to learn and study, you can always find a way to read and practice new things and skills. Dancing, cooking, drawing and playing a musical instrument are activities which engage many parts of your brain, practicing them will literally tone your brain and they are fun too.
5. Stronger blood vessels and balanced hormones – cold laser therapy

Your brain needs good fats, enough proteins, lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, lots of water and fresh air.
