1. Exercise on a Regular Basis
The Alzheimer’s Research & Prevention Foundation states that exercising physically on a regular basis can help reduce the risk of a person developing Alzheimer’s by up to 50%. Moreover, physical exercise can also slow down any deterioration in your brain. Exercising stimulates the brain and helps in preventing Alzheimer’s.
Go for at least 150 minutes of medium intensity exercise every week. The ideal workout routine involves a combination of strength and cardio training. You can start with activities such as swimming and walking if you’re new to this. After that, go with coordination and balance exercises to help keep your body agile. Tai Chi, yoga and other exercises that use balance balls are great for you.
Hitting your head on something hard can cause an injury that can lead to Alzheimer’s disease. Most people can recover from this injury easily, but if your brain tissues are damaged, it can lead to something serious. Exercising regularly helps you stay fit and thus, aids in avoiding stumbles and slips that lead to head injuries.
