You probably know how important it is to get regular physicals and dental checkups to make sure your body is in tip-top shape, but how about your brain? Is your brain as strong as it could be? Our brain health is critically important at any age, but it’s especially important to maintain and strengthen as we age. After all, just like our muscles, it’s "use it or lose it." Read on for 13 quick suggestions to help strengthen your brain:
