Current science suggests to achieve sharper thinking and ward memory loss, we must practice better health habits across the three main dimensions of wellness: physical, intellectual, and socio-emotional health. Pursuing activities that promote engagement in all these areas- such as getting regular exercise, playing games that test our ability to “think fast,” stretching our minds with new intellectual pursuits, and staying socially connected-are all paths to better brain fitness. This class will be, hands-on and socially engaging, and will teach us the tools to use to help keep us sharp and maintain brain vitality over our lifetime.
