Loved this article in yesterday's Toronto Globe and Mail about warding off dementia.
Reducing calorie intake by 33% helps discourage abnormal protein deposit in the brain. The same abnormal protein deposit that's associated with dementia.
Reading helps sustain cognitive function. Way more fun for me than kenken or sudoku etc. I love to read. New ideas, new stories to discuss with other people is apparently the key.
Sustaining equanimity is good too. Deliberately. Accepting that life includes unpleasant surprises without freaking out. Normalizing them, I suppose.
I can do that. And in particular, this provides me with additional motivation to stay lean.
