It’s Friday Night so everythang is poppin! Well according to the video below but here in my crib it is study time. I actually feel relieved a full weekend of hitting the books and practicing yoga (which means relaxation) and pilates. Going to feel fit, smart and relaxed before the weekend is through. Who knows I may even have prolonged the death of a brain cell or two. Which is important considering when you get my age you could be losing up to….wait for it….wait for it…..yes 10,000 brain cells a day!
There are some actions you can actually perform to improve your cognitive function as you age…here are 8 habits that are touted to be beneficial.
- Physical Activity
- Openness to Experience
- Curiosity and Creativity
- Social Connections
- Mindfulness Meditation
- Brain-Training Games
- Get Enough Sleep
- Reduce Chronic Stress
I am really trying to put these into practice in my daily life but anyone who knows me will be pretty in touch with the fact that number 7 and 8 are really a bit out of my reach at this point….. Oh well 6 out of 8 isn’t such a bad ratio unless of course you are referring to my GPA then that is completely out of the question.
So now needing a bit of a pick me up to make it through the next chapter I am dreaming about a scrumptious CupCake with icing piled sky high and with a filling surprise inside! Since it is fall I believe a moist Pumpkin Spice with Maple Cinnamon Cream Cheese Icing is on the list to have my mouth water over. That and a Grande cup of Pumpkin Latte from Starbucks and I could be happy through tomorrow, at least that calorie intake would put me at the limit through tomorrow but hey as stated before, a girl can dream!
