Wellbeing Health Tip – Brain Health

5 Steps to Keep Your Brain Healthy:

  1. Look after your heart
    Diabetes, high cholesterol and high blood pressure can damage the blood vessels in the brain, affecting brain function and thinking skills.
  2. Be physically active
    Regular physical activity is associated with better brain function and reduced risk of cognitive decline and dementia.
  3. Mentally challenge your brain
    New activities help to build new brain cells – learn a language, take up a new sport or hobby or do a course in something you’ve always wanted to do.
  4. Have a healthy diet
    A healthy, balanced diet low in saturated and trans fats and rich in healthy fats may help in maintaining brain health and functionality.
  5. Enjoy social activity
    It’s important to be social with people whose company you enjoy and in ways that interest you.
