Let’s Get Fit – The Physically Active Mind

No matter your age, a healthy body is the key to a healthy brain. Make a commitment today to get your body and your brain working together.

Here are some helpful tips for a physically active mind:

  • Engage in physical activity for at least 30 minutes a day to encourage new brain cells and connections; walk, play sports, take the stairs instead of the elevator, or do something you enjoy outdoors
  • Don’t lose any sleep over your physical health – try to get approximately seven to eight hours of sleep each day
  • See your doctor regularly to help monitor your health and ensure you’re in tip-top shape
  • Don’t smoke
  • Maintain a healthy weight to minimize your risk for diabetes, high cholesterol and hypertension
