A few simple lifestyle changes now may mean lowering the chance of developing Alzheimer’s disease later.
Health Briefs TV firmly believes in maintaining a healthy and fit lifestyle. Ongoing studies report that by adding a few simple changes such as getting more exercise every day, one can lower their risk of getting dementia or Alzheimer’s.
Daily exercise does not have to be strenuous or last for long periods of time. It also does not mean that we have to go to a gym and work out like an athlete. A brisk 30 minute walk twice a day – at lunch time and after dinner – are two easy times to boost activity. Also to consider are bike riding, swimming, light jogging and walking the family dog or dogs.
Plan healthy meals before going to the store and make a list. Keep favorite recipes handy. Make some meals over the weekend and keep in the fridge for easy access. Spruce dishes up with fresh and dried herbs.
The Health Briefs TV also recommends getting enough sleep every night. It is suggested that people get seven to nine hours of rest. Reducing stress is another factor in lowering the risk. Try a yoga class, practice meditation, read quietly before bed or when not working. Enjoy the outdoors with a loved one. Experts also suggest keeping the brain active. All of these lifestyle changes can lower Alzheimer’s risks. What are you doing?
