The Beautiful Truth of Aging- 4 Steps for a Healthy and Active Mind
America’s Brain Health Index, a study on how the people of each state incorporate the four dimensions of brain health, was recently released. No matter how your state ranked on the list, you can always do more to stay healthier. This article lists four main steps: get moving, nourish your body and your mind, embrace new activities and expand your social network. "Whether we live in the top-ranked states or in the areas that are below average, there are several ways to nurture and engage the mind to keep it healthy throughout our lives," says Dr. Majid Fotuhi, chairman of the Neurology Institute for Brain Health and Fitness, and assistant professor of neurology at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. The article ends with the inspirational story of Ernestine Shepard, who in her later life became the world’s oldest performing female bodybuilder.
