I had this feeling that my being “forgetful” gets way out of hand sometimes. And being the biggest paranoid that I am, Allie suddenly came to my mind. Yes. Allie from The Notebook. I know I am too young to have Alzheimer’s but did I tell you I was paranoid? I suddenly found myself browsing though this site and getting armed with information and ways on how to AVOID GETTING IT.
Think About Your Future.
Maintain Your Brain Today.
- Stay curious and involved — commit to lifelong learning
Ooh this would be easy. I really don’t have any plans of letting my brain rot after college. I’m always curious although not always involved. But curious will do, right?
- Read, write, work crossword or other puzzles
I love doing all of these so there isn’t any problem.
- Attend lectures and plays
I only had a chance to watch several plays way back when I was in highschool and elementary and watching one now will be next to impossible. Will nice movies work the same?
- Play games
I love playing games!
Because I’m scared of worms, grasshoppers, bugs, and bees, I’m staying away from this one. I never liked gardening, I think it’s boring.
- Try memory exercises
I always play memory games on my phone and I try to break my rcord each time 🙂
- Stay active in the workplace
- Volunteer in community groups and causes
I’ll try to!!
- Join bridge clubs, square dancing clubs or other social groups
This should be something really interesting to keep me from being an inactive member.
I’ve always wanted to travel so this would definitely be on top of my list.
- Physical Exercise “Pumps Up” Your Brain, Too
Last semester break my friends and I said we’ll go to the gym, play badminton regularly, and do ab crunches everyday. None of those were fully put into action. But I’ll go to the gym someday, promise.
- Manage your body weight
I’m happy because I think I’ve gained some pounds last year. 🙂
- Reduce your intake of foods high in fat and cholesterol.
So this means less fries and burgers? Waaaaah!
- Increase your intake of protective foods.
Ok. But not veggies ok? I don’t eat vegetables so I think I’m abnormal hehe. The only veggies I eat are cauliflower, string beans, cabbage (if it’s in a hamburger), sayote, I think that’s it. I don’t even eat carrots unless it is meticulously chopped or hidden in the dish. hehe
- Vitamin supplements may be helpful
I used to take vitamins when I was younger, that’s when my mom would force me to take those kadiri syrup. Now I tried taking vitamins again but I always end up forgetting (ooohh forgetting again) to take them everyday.
