It then gives you practical advice to keep the brain working to its maximum potential so that it is less prone to age-related decline and can conquer stress, anxiety, and the risk of depression. The book is packed with mental exercises and activities, featuring challenges from logic puzzles and visual reasoning to language learning and sensory exercises, stimulating as many parts of the brain as possible. As well as mental stimulation, the book highlights the role and importance of sleep, a healthy diet, and physical exercise.
