Taking action to stay healthy as you age is good for your brain, too. Take these 5 steps toward better brain health:
  • Get recommended health screenings
  • Manage health problems like diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol
  • Consult with your health care provider to make sure your medicines are right for you
  • Reduce risk for brain injuries due to falls and other types of accidents
  • Quit smoking. It’s never too late to quit!
