While there is no way to prevent all types of dementia, studies have shown that there are things you can do to reduce your risk of developing dementia.
These are some tips on how you can keep your mind active and lower the risk of developing dementia.
Exercising regularly will make your heart and blood circulatory system more efficient. It will also help to lower cholesterol and maintain your blood pressure at a healthy level, decreasing the risk of developing vascular dementia.
Be physically and socially active. Physical activity and social interaction may delay the onset of dementia.
Keep your mind active. Mentally stimulating activities, such as puzzles, Sudoku and other word games serve as cognitive training that may offset or delay the setting in of dementia.
Maintain a healthy diet. Having a healthy diet is important for many reasons, but a diet rich in fruits, vegetables and omega-3 fatty acids – commonly found in certain fish and nuts – may promote overall health and offset or delay the setting in of dementia.
