Live Longer and Better

Which of these is most likely to improve your memory after age 50?

a. Solving crossword or Sudoku puzzles
b. Going on regular walks
c. Taking ginkgo biloba supplements

Answer: b. Human brains typically shrink with age, impairing memory (and explaining why your car keys keep disappearing). But a revelatory study published in October found that physically active older people experienced less brain shrinkage than sedentary seniors, even those who engaged in "mentally stimulating" activities like puzzles.

On that note, I am going for a walk to search for my missing car keys (as well as other missing items). Have a great weekend!!! And.......stay warm!!!
