In this video, Dr. Gayatri Devi, board-certified neurologist and author of The Spectrum of Hope: An Optimistic and New Approach to Alzheimer’s Disease, discusses activities people can do on a regular basis to take care of their brains. The best thing is regular aerobic exercise, and Dr. Devi urges people to get at least 45 minutes per week. In addition, picking up new activities will engage the brain and combat brain atrophy. Choosing activities that you enjoy will make it easier to keep up with them and ensure that you continue to reap the rewards of your effort.
