You should exercise your mind in the same way that you exercise your body. ed.gif

As regular exercise is believed to give your brain a mental work-out, it could reduce your chances of developing Alzheimer's Disease.
Research has indicated that those aged over forty-five taking part in regular physical exercise two times per week (for at least half an hour) are up to sixty per cent less likely to develop Alzheimer's Disease later in life.
This is because regular physical exercise is thought to be able to slow down your brain's ageing process.
It can also improve your ability to concentrate.
You don't have to get hot and sweaty in the gym though, as there are lots of different sporting activities that you can get involved in to keep your mind active and healthy.

If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?
