Mental Well-Being is Linked to Brain Health, Finds Report
Mental well-being is related to people’s brain health as they age, finds a study from The Global Council on Brain Health.
According to the study, poor mental well-being is linked to dementia risk and can affect your thinking and reasoning skills - adults 50 years of age or older who scored higher on the mental well-being scale were more likely to report better memory and thinking skills.
The report says no matter what your age, there are ways to improve your mental well-being. Some of their recommendations include: try a mindful movement practice such as yoga or tai chi, commit to regular exercise and strengthen bonds with family and friends.
