Are you Managing Your Stress? A recent study found that women who experience a greater number of stressors (work, family, illness) in mid-life were more likely to develop dementia. Dr. Oz’s shared recently, “chronic stress can trigger inflammatory compounds and damage areas of the brain linked to memory.” By the way, I teach “Brain Fitness”, for LAUSD, which is a course much like aerobic classes for memory.
My Way is the Best Way. As Mara Brok Akil states, “Value other people’s opinions, but follow your vision because no one is going to express a story the way you do.”
I wish you a healthy, happy and prosperous New Year!
JOIN ME: I am committed to healthy eating. This week I am eating for brain health, with a focus on foods that are excellent sources of omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3s belong to a group of fats known as polyunsaturated fats, and studies suggest that they can help ward off a range of diseases, including Alzheimer’s and depression. Flaxseeds, walnuts, sardines, salmon and tofu are all excellent sources of omega-3s. You’ll find some in the delicious recipes I gathered in AARP, and I’ve included here. Try the recipes. Feedback is welcomed.
