Building a Holistic Action Plan
Finally, in order to effectively pursue the maintenance or improvement of our brain fitness, we must pursue multiple modalities. Again, a physical fitness comparison might help to illustrate the point. Just as physical fitness is not achieved solely through the use of a bench press machine, a single activity such as crossword puzzles or computer-based brain exercises cannot possibly provide a complete brain fitness solution.
Most people are aware that brain fitness can be promoted through formal education, being actively engaged in life, and continuing to take on new challenges. Most people also understand the importance of a healthy lifestyle, including physical exercise, good nutrition, and stress management. But there is now a mountain of scientific studies and specific product/lifestyle options to sift through. Many people will benefit from the assistance of an expert advisor as they seek to define a holistic action plan. But in any case, a comprehensive approach is clearly the best bet for achieving your brain fitness goals.
By understanding the full breadth of your brain’s abilities, clearly defining your unique brain fitness goals, and building a holistic, evidence-based action plan, you’ll be well prepared to live life to the fullest.
