Your Brain In Your 40s

I’m 43 and my brain is fine, thank you.

Your brain probably is too, but don’t you want to do everything you can to make sure it will stay that way in 10, 20, 30 years from now? Like exercise to keep your body fit, there is a lot you can do to keep your memory sharp for the future — but the time to start is now.

Recent research, using bio markers, PET scans and other tests, shows the formation of plaques, the first abnormality in the brain of a person with Alzheimer’s, starts to show up as early as 20 years before there are any cognitive signs

That means decades can go by when everything seems “normal” — only it isn’t. 

Keeping Your Memory Sharp

You can improve your brain health now and in the future by making small lifestyle changes that will have big impacts over time. Here are a few things you can do to better your future:

  • Maintain a well-structured sleep schedule
  • Engage in frequent social interaction
  • Make moderate exercise a daily goal
  • Stimulate your brain with activities such as puzzles, languages, hobbies, or interesting jobs

    Another critical factor according to the Global Council on Brain Health is the connection between certain food groups and brain health(2). Nutrition is a great preventative measure against cognitive decline. Today’s society puts so much emphasis on self-care, whether fitness or even the infrequent nap, so why not take care of your most important organ—your brain?
