How to Stay Young and Healthy

The other day I watched a really interesting BBC document about how to stay young and more specifically how to prevent dementia and Alzheimer's disease. As you get older your brains begin to shrink. As a result of this your cognitive skills diminish. How to prevent this? The key is to use your brains on a daily basis. More specifically scientists have discovered that learning a new language has the most efficient way to prevent dementia because learning will increase the size of your brain. According to these scientists other important ways to affect the size of your brain were


  • reading
  • exercising in general
  • learning a new skill, such as playing guitar
  • studying

In the document researches investigated whether regular walks or ping poll plays had an effect on the brain tissue. The test groups walked or played ping poll for 2 hours per week. The results revealed that both test groups gained positive effects on their brain tissue because of their increased exercise. Moreover, their cognitive skills imporoved and in general their mood was better. Some persons reported that they felt more alive and alert.

Also food played an important role in preventing diseases. The document investigated a Japanese village called Okinowa where the most healthiest people on earth happen to live. People in this village had 50% less dementia and 80% Alzheimer's disease than Western people. What did these people eat? They ate a lot of

  • purple sweet potatoe
  • red grapes
  • red cabbage
  • blackcurrants
  • blackberries

These foods have in common that they include anthocyanins. Read more in here.




Other interesting study which I came across was a study which examined the most important factor how to age better. This factor is not a gym membership or relationships, rather according to this study living a purposeful life will give you more years to live. This sounds convincing, if you feel like you have a purpose in life, you will enjoy your life and live to the fullest.

Lastly one fact which is constantly linked to living healthy and long is to have an ideal weight. This means not too much or not too little fat tissue.

Until next time,

  2. It's informative, the first time I read that learning new languages increases brain size.

    If someone would ask me what the most considerable wealth is, I'd say "Health." There is no life without great health.

    Living a healthy life starts with eating good & organic food. Eating fruits in daily life is the best way to avoid many diseases, and living a happy stress-free life.

    But the problem is that the young generation is not following this rule. Whenever I see millennials eating unhealthy food like donuts, pizza, potato chips, etc. I felt bad.

    It's a duty of wise people (like you) to guide other people about how important eating good food to life is.

    Last night I was reading about a fruit "Moringa." It's a plant which cultivated in the sub-Himalayan areas of Pakistan, India, and other neighboring countries.

    Pure moringa powder is the best when it comes to boosting your immune system.

    I'm sharing here some other health benefits of using moringa powder regularly:

    1- It controls the blood sugar level
    2- Lower the cholesterol level
    3- Reduce joint inflammation
    4- Make your bones more strong
    5- Good for heart diseases
    6- Good for stomach diseases
    7- Increases breast milk production

    So it's essential to eat right and organic food if you want to live a long happy life.

    Anyhow, Jennikatja your work is great. We need to promote these kinds of articles so that more and more people could learn the benefits of eating good food.

    Keep guiding people. I wish you success.

  3. Thanks for your lovely comment! I agree with you that I also feel a bit bad when I see young people eating unhealthy food. They don't realize the damage that food does to their body in the long-run if they consume these daily.
