As we age, our physical health is not the only aspect of our being that begins to decline. Our cognitive abilities can also take the hit, with our memories rarely remaining as sharp as they once were. Our physical health is boosted by engaging in regular exercise, and similarly, we can improve our cognitive health through practising mentally stimulating tasks.
Thanks to neuroplasticity, our brain’s ability to constantly change over time, we have the ability to learn and absorb new information. This gives us the freedom to boost our cognitive abilities, even in old age. We can slow down our cognitive decline simply by making a few small changes to our daily lifestyle.
