Reading Keeps You Healthy

Overwhelming research shows that if you keep your mind sharp and active, you can prevent memory loss. “There is no question that reading can maintain a healthy brain as you age,” said Janice Vickers, executive director of Alzheimer’s of Glynn/ Brunswick. “The saying is true: If you don’t use it, you lose it.” Alzheimer’s disease, the most common form of dementia, can be avoided or, at the very least, delayed.

Using your brain as often as possible in a variety of ways is great mental exercise. It can be as simple as reading a book which involves many functions of the brain, including concentration, vision and comprehension. Reading books, magazines and periodicals aren’t the only sources individuals can use to stimulate brain function. Doing research online, playing trivia games and even crossword puzzles have been shown as ways to produce more brain function and prevent dementia-related diseases, Vickers said.
