: During the course of my research study, I have come across various sources that say that if you read, study, generally use your cognitive brain on a regular basis, you reduce the risk of memory loss associated with Alzheimer's. As for me I noticed that I'm mentally sharper when I study on a regular basis as opposed to watching tv everyday. Even a week of no studying (brain vacation) can lower my abilities. It's harder to come back to mental alertness than to lose it. I also think that physical exercise helps me clear my mind as well. Maybe it's the adrenaline but after good jog I'm more mentally sound. I guess it's a head-body connection.

You know, since my grandfather started to be more forgetful recently, I've tried to do certain memory exercises with him on a regular basis. We use games and puzzles, not really childish ones but things that adults can enjoy as well like some games you find in Discovery stores. I think he's been actually improving, maybe it's just my hopes. Mainly we like the time we spend together and that make both of us happy. And I think being happy helps hims too.
