Beyond crossword puzzles

by The 100 Companies

While crossword puzzles may help keep you sharp, there is so much more you can do. Dr. Sanjay Gupta explains that a chemical called BDNF allows new brain cells to grow at any age. Gupta offers tips:

• Movement – Moderate exercise is better for the heart while intense activity is better for body.

• Sugar – Brain receptors shut down with too much sugar.

• Stress – The key is not having relentless stress. Find time to decompress.

• Discomfort zone – We only use 5-10% of our brain 90% of the time. To harness more brain power, do things differently, like using your non dominant hand.
