March 13 – 19 is Brain Awareness Week. So, let’s think about your brain. The brain is an amazing organ. It controls all bodily functions, all organs, thoughts, emotions, memory and ability to be self-aware. Like other body parts, it is natural for the brain to lose some of its sharpness; but it can deteriorate even more if you do not take care of it.
According to the Alzheimer’s Association, it is important to stay physically active, to adopt a brain-healthy diet, and to remain socially active and mentally alert.
