Memory problems are commonly linked to Dementia, the term being described as a group of symptoms connected to the loss of various intellectual functions. Memory loss is a tough health concern that can be helped with early and accurate diagnosis. Some problems, especially detected and addressed at an early stage, can be reversible. Coupled with a healthy lifestyle, aging can be a journey to look forward to.
 
There are several ways to improve brain health, and allow for a life without worry of dementia. Here are 5 ways recommended by the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America:
 
Socialization: Keep yourself connected to the people, communities and causes you feel passionate about. It is especially important to build healthy relationships after retirement.
 
Physical Activity: Try walking 7,000 to 12,000 steps daily. Engage in any physical activity like gardening and dancing that uses both sides of the body.
 
Mental Stimulation: Always find something new to learn whether it be a book, a game or even listening to music that will introduce new knowledge and keep your brain energized for something yet to be discovered.
 
Spirituality: Seek spiritually in ways you find most satisfying - praying, meditating and any other relaxation technique holding you centered.
 
Nutrition: What you take in can heal your mind and body by absorbing the right nutrition. Eat fresh and chemical-free produce and decrease, if not eliminate, eating processed foods and red meats.
