So I just turned 40. Yes, that’s right, full-fledged middle agedom. While I still feel young and spry like a wild buck, I know that the clock is ticking away and I have to really start thinking about taking care of myself. The old body doesn’t bounce back quite as well as it once did. It’s also very important to keep your find strong and stay sharp as life continues its wear and tear on you. One awesome program I’ve come across is AARP’s Staying Sharp Program and its new and improved tools and functionalities. Keep in mind; this is not just for seniors! This is a standalone, subscription-based platform for all ages with the goal of promoting and maintaining brain health. This is another part of AARP’s commitment to provide reliable information on brain health – for all of us (even us young 40 year olds).
Staying Sharp uses a holistic approach to provide science-based, personalized tools and recommendations (e.g. free and premium brain games, recipes and more) that allow subscribers to track and measure their brain health progress using five key focus areas or “pillars”:
- NOURISH (eating right)
- MOVE (keeping fit)
- RELAX (managing stress)
- DISCOVER (learning new things), and
- CONNECT (being social)
So what’s new and unique to Staying Sharp? The biggest update has to be the Brain Health Assessment tool. This baby is a scientifically backed, clinically-validated tool that answers the questions “How well is my brain?” and “How am I performing against others in my same demographic?” From your unique Brain Health Assessment comes your specialized brain health plan.
Here’s a taste of all the great content:
You can be confident in Staying Sharp because it is validated by findings recommended by the Global Council on Brain Health – an independent collaborative of scientists, health professionals, scholars and policy experts from around the world working in areas of brain health related to human cognition.
So, what do you think? Are you ready to give your mid a workout and get your brain into sharp shape? I’m loving this site and I think you will too, no matter how old, young, or young at heart you are. If you are ready, then you are in luck!!!
