TOO MUCH TO DO?
Don’t get stressed – get smug. It seems busy people have sharper minds and a more powerful memory. Scientists say packing a lot into the day increases the opportunity to learn new things, stimulating and challenging the brain. In a study of 330 healthy men and women aged 50 to 89, a busy lifestyle was linked to a healthy brain, regardless of age or education level. Those with a packed schedule processed information more quickly and had superior memory, reasoning and vocabulary to those who took it easy, reported Frontiers in Aging Neuroscience.
