The Importance of Staying Mentally Sharp
For seniors, keeping your mind sharp is important for overall health. According to a study published May 2016 by Frontiers in Aging Neuroscience, people aged 50-89 who stayed busy had better cognitive function than their less busy counter-parts. The greatest effect of busyness resulted in greater memory retention.
