Prevention Pillar 6 - Active Social Life -Wednesday, April 9, 2014
This is the sixth installment of the ‘Help to Reduce Your Risk and Protect You Brain’ series. The sixth prevention pillar that I will be writing about is an active social life. Us as human beings are highly social creatures. We don’t thrive in isolation and neither do our brains. Studies show that the more connected we are, the better we fare on tests of memory and cognition. Staying socially active may even protect against Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, so make your social life priority.
