In a Chinese study participating in intellectual activities, such as reading books, newspapers, or magazines; playing board games, Mahjong, or card games; and betting on horse racing, even in late life, might help delay or prevent dementia in older adults.
PARTICIPATE! Learn something news. Playing games is good. Have fun with your intellectual challenges or do things that interest and challenge you. Learning new Salsa footwork, something I am not good at, I challenge myself to learn on a regular basis. Or, by memory, doing a short educational video off the top of my head on a health topic I have just researched, is what I do with my YouTube videos.
Keep challenging yourself!
