6. Lifestyle Factors

Most studies related to dementia have shown that our lifestyle choices can have a significant impact on our risk of developing mental disorders. Evidence shows that people with various healthy behaviors, especially in their 40s, 50s, and 60s, have the lowest chance of developing dementia.

These behaviors include keeping a healthy diet, drinking alcohol only in moderation, not smoking, and engaging in regular mental, social, and physical activity. The risk of mental disorders is lowest for those who do at least three of these behaviors. When just one or two of these behaviors are followed, the risk is reduced by a very small amount.

  2. Studying Spanish and relearning Hebrew, taking lessons on my fourth musical instrument after a long time of not having time to play music (while raising children and pursuing a career), have all contributed to my feeling of youthfulness, not to mention regular physical activity, regular sleep and eating habits, and a positive attitude bolstered by my abiding faith in Jesus Christ.
