A Mini Workout For Your Brain

Did you ever think that the conversations you have on a daiy basis can be good for your brain?

From a brain health standpoint, daily ten minute conversations can have the same positive effect on your brain as doing a crossword puzzle. Researchers have found that during these conversations, the interaction of listening, understanding, inferring,staying on topic and adapting to a new viewpoint are like mini workouts for your brain.

Researchers have also found that people who are more social, have a lower incidence of Alzheimer's and people who feel lonely have a higher incidence.

Some people actually think that socializing is a waste of time or think they have more important things to do, but being social does have its benefits. It is enjoyable, keeps your brain sharper and gives you an overall feeling of feeling better.

Hello Ajay,
Thank you and I hope you and yours had a very happy holiday. This last week has been so busy for me. I wasn't even online at all.
I'm hoping to catch up over the weekend.
Many blessings
