Three tips via Medical News Today for staying sharp, remembering stuff, and avoiding stress and depression:


Recent research led by the University of California, Los Angeles shows that taking a short walk each day can help to keep the brain healthy, supporting the overall resilience of cognitive functioning. They recommend at least 4000 steps per day.


According to a new study published in the journal Memory, we are more likely to remember something if we read it out loud.

Repeat after me: "I did turn off the gas!"..."Next week is our anniversary!"..."This, too, shall pass!"


Researchers found that men who consumed more than 67 Grams of sugar daily from sweetened foods and beverages were much more likely to develop anxietydepression, and other common mental disorders after 5 years, compared with men with a lower daily sugar intake.

Here’s how much sugar is in a few common foods and drinks:

Naked Pomegranate Blueberry Juice: 32 grams

Coca Cola Original (330ml): 35 grams

Frosties cereal (30 grams with semi-skimmed milk): 17 grams

Mars Chocolate bar (51 grams): 30.4 grams

As you can see, it doesn’t take much to reach that 67 grams.
