When you get to a certain age, our minds slow down a bit, and we don’t actively seek as many mind-engaging activities to do. However, a study suggests that it doesn’t matter which type of activities seniors are doing, the fact that they are doing different types of activity can encourage them to use their brains more.
These activities do not have to be solving rocket science to challenge the brain, but rather engaging with different parts of the brain with activities such as crossword puzzles, painting, card games, recollecting life stories, etc. Furthermore, dancing is a fun and sociable activity has shown great for be beneficial for the mind.
So if you or your elderly loved ones are looking for ways to spend your time, just try as many new activities as possible to keep your mind active!
