Reduce your Risk

Get Mobile

And no, we don’t mean get a better phone. You’ve heard it before, exercise counts. It delivers more oxygen to your brain and supports the nerve cells responsible for learning, memory and decision-making.

Get enough Zs

Sleep is essential for your brain to rest, recharge and perform key functions to keep your body healthy.

Eat your veg

We know you know this. But at the risk of being a broken record, (and to give you that friendly nudge), be sure to get enough plant-based foods into your belly. Many doctors promote the Mediterranean diet for healthy brains.

Socialize with others

Connect with people, have conversations and make new connections. Your mood, as well as your brain, will thank you.

Reduce your stress levels

Easier said than done, right? It’s important to do self-care, set realistic goals and boundaries, improve your time management and more. But it’s not always that simple. Feeling overwhelmed? We can help you with that.

‘Strain’ your brain

When you do things that are challenging for your brain, you help form new connections and increase your ‘cognitive reserve’. Stretch your brain beyond the things you do everyday. If it’s easy, familiar or repetitive, try doing something new.

Brain-Stretching Suggestions

Dive into Brain-Boosting Games

Games like Wordle, sudoku, chess, crossword puzzles, and word searches. Brain teasers challenge your logic and problem-solving. Some popular sites are Braingle, Funbrain and Puzzles-to-Print.

Challenge Your Norms

Do daily tasks with your opposite hand. If you’re right-handed, brush your teeth with your left, and so on.

Learn Something New

Embark on a journey of exploration, like learning a new language, mastering a musical instrument, delving into a fresh hobby or sport, or enriching your knowledge through classes and workshops.
