With spring in full swing and summer right around the corner now is the time to not only exercise our bodies but also our brains. Healthy eating is beneficial to both the body and the brain. All the refreshing fruits and vegetables are back in season and not just bursting with flavor but Omega 3s and other nutrients vital to brain health. Getting outdoors, and participating in leisurely activities like gardening, walking, and bike riding can send oxygen-rich blood to our brain energizing all those brain cells. Even taking an outdoor yoga class at the park or taking in the sights and sounds of a concert or festival can all help relieve brain stress, improve mood, and rejuvenate our brain power.
Remember that before undertaking any new activities or change in diet consult with a medical professional. The medical staff at Western New York Medical, PC can also recommend other options to strengthen our mental muscle including assessing medications, sleep habits, and overall general health.
