Many know that aging is a risk factor for developing dementia. However, research indicates that there are a number of ways to reduce or mitigate your risk, and developing good habits early on is a great way to have a positive impact on your mental health later in life.

According to the Alzheimer’s Society:

  • Keep physically active. As little as 30 minutes a day, 5 days per week of increased physical activity which raises your heart rate is not only good for your heart and general well-being, but it can also reduce your risk of developing dementia later in life.
  • Don’t smoke
  • Eat a healthy, balanced diet
  • Reduce alcohol consumption
  • Maintain a healthy weight. Also helps reduce your risk of developing Type 2 diabetes, stroke and heart disease.
  • Exercise your brain. Challenge yourself with brain activities such as puzzles, word searches or crosswords. Try something new, such as a new game, learn a language or read a new book.

For further tips or suggestions, visit the Alzheimer’s Society or Alzheimer’s Association.
