Be Social

Socialize with others and take an interest in them. Your brain will thank you. Enhanced people skills will improve brain function. Engaging in meaningful conversations with others helps you develop your people skills and that's an important function of the brain.
 
While socializing, you are also learning new things. It's not good to stay home and read or study, while failing to cultivate a vibrant social life because one part of your brain isn't being used.

Healthy Gaming

Are you a gamer? Staying focused while playing a game that requires concentration and critical thinking is a great way to strengthen the brain and help avoid Alzheimer's disease.

Some good brain exercise games include puzzle games or problem solving video games like Nintendo's Super Mario series. Doing crossword puzzles is also good for your brain because you are constantly thinking.
 
Avoid games that don't require you to think or make decisions. Such pleasure-providing games are not typically good for the brain.

Physical Exercise

The benefits of physical exercise are immense. Not only do you gain physical wellbeing, your brain gets stronger too. Eating right and exercising regularly will strengthen your brain. When you exercise, brain activity spikes. Some great exercises include:

  • Yoga
  • Aerobics
  • Ballroom Dancing
  • Power Walking
  • Swimming
