Change up your routine a bit. It is always healthy for your mind, body, and soul to do a few things differently from time to time. It’s easy to get into rut with so many regular responsibilities, but when you start going through the motions without even thinking; your brain can begin to suffer the consequences.

Reading books or doing crossword puzzles, sodoku, and other thoughtful activities may also help keep your brain sharp. And there are plenty of games and exercises available that may help you limber up your mind as well.

Old friends are wonderful, but your conversations may begin to get stale and repetitive. Finding people with new perspectives to share can be refreshing to your brain, even if their opinions differ from yours.

Finally, it can be a good idea to sign up for a class at a local university or library. Such courses can keep your mind busy and operating at its maximum potential.
