NE Nightingales Tip of the Week: October 29, 2013 is World Stroke Day. Here are a few tips to keep your mind sharp and body fit:
Exercise regularly, at minimum of 30 minutes a day 3x a week. Exercise increases blood flow to the brain which keeps the brain healthy and working well. The more use of your brain, the more function you will have. Activities that increase brain function are playing Scrabble, Crossword Puzzles, Chinese Checkers, Chess or cards, playing musical instruments such as the flute and piano, and learning another language such as Spanish or Italian.
