Staying alert

If you stay active and engaged with life there's a good chance you'll stay alert and bright to the end of your days. Gene Cohen’s research has identified five ways to sustain power, clarity and subtlety of mind: 

       Exercise mentally

       Exercise physically

       Pick challenging leisure activities

       Achieve mastery

       Establish strong social networks

“Adulthood is not a developmental destination or pinnacle, either psychologically or neurologically. It is the continuing evolution of our brains and our selves that constantly invites us to have a more active hand in our destiny.”

Gene Cohen, Director of Centre on Ageing, George Washington University
