How do you keep your brain resilient during this crazy pandemic?

Last month I highlighted the science around COVID and the Brain in this post. Today, I’m following up that article which featured information from Dr. Sanjay Gupta’s new book, Keep Sharp on how to further optimize brain health with a few more tips on how to keep your brain resilient during these trying times.

Dr. Gupta identifies five main contributors to brain health that people can control: being more active, keeping the brain stimulated (reading this article for example!), getting restful sleep, nourishing the body (good nutrition!), and having a vibrant social life.

I look forward to receiving my print copy of Brain&Life magazine. Especially now when our entire lives are online, it is nice to relax and step away from my monitor to read something positive I can do to keep my brain in check! You can get your own print copy here free too or read the current issue online.

Also in this issue you’ll find a great article on how a plant based diet may reduce disease risks. In this article the focus is around diet and Parkinson’s Disease but a healthy diet is neuroprotective for all over physical and mental health.

I’m a bit biased after all on the power of great nutrition in keeping your Body in Balance. After all [shameless plug] I wrote a book about it!
