1) Get Proper Sleep

All-nighters hurt your brain. Insufficient sleep increases dementia risk. Set a sleep routine (at least 6–7 hours) and stick to it.

2) Don't sleep too much

Over-65s who sleep more than nine hours a night have double the risk of having dementia and Alzheimer's disease within 10 years.

3) Exercise

Being physically fit reduces your chances of memory loss. Physical activity can improve memory, alleviate anxiety and sadness, and lower the risk of dementia.

4) Stay Hydrated

Because water makes up around 75% of the brain, "dehydration, even in modest amounts, can have a deleterious influence on brain processes."

5) Socialize

By surrounding oneself with family and friends, you create emotional bonds that lead to longevity. This also lowers your chances of developing Alzheimer's disease.

6) Be optimistic

Anxiety and despair have been associated with an increased risk of memory loss. Positive thinking reduces anxiety and despair while increasing happiness.

7) Consume Brain-Healthy Food

Consuming more veggies, nuts, nutritious grains, and legumes and eating less red meat promotes brain health and longevity.

8) Do Brain Workout

Crossword and Sudoku puzzles, reading, card games, and jigsaw puzzles are all great ways to keep your mind active and healthy.
