Staying Sharp: 9 Keys for a Youthful Brain

I have been “swamped” with the end of the semester and hope to be blogging more regularly in the coming weeks. In the mean time I wanted to make a book recommendation.

Staying Sharp: 9 Keys for a Youthful Brain Through Modern Science and Ageless Wisdom” by Henry Emmons, MD, and David Alter, PhD is a must read. ┬áTheir use of science, evidence based medicine, and extensive experience combine for a book full of practical strategies that anyone can benefit from. ┬áThe two experts go far beyond just nutrition and physical activity to include some of the most important aspects of well-being including sleep, curiosity, optimism, outlook on life, empathy, social interaction, and being your authentic self. It’s a good one that I highly recommend for anyone looking to improve their own physical and mental health as well as overall quality of life.
