So lets talk about our New Year Resolutions.  It is usually to stop bad habits or to take on improvements. So I tend to think that most people somewhere on their list put down something about losing weight. Whether it is to diet or exercise. Did you know that if you are between the ages of 30 - 50 and you are exercising you are also helping to reduce the risk of Dementia.  When you exercising the blood & oxygen flow through your body also goes through your head, reaching your brain improving cognitive test scores on healthy adults. The brain depends on healthy blood supply which reduces potential for stroke which can lead to dementia

So what is your New Year Resolution?   Don't forget about reading books, doing cross word puzzles or  watching game shoes which play with the mind. Try to eat the right foods, water and get enough rest.
I hope you have a great New Year.

This is a very interesting study! It would be interesting to see how making healthy lifestyle changes such as diet, exercise and stress management would impact the results. For those that are looking for some great information on prevention the Alzheimer's Research and Prevention Foundation has some amazing resources. Thanks for the reminder!
