Today the USA Today reported on some recently published research that concluded that playing video games does not really provide any cognitive benefit - they'd previously been suggested as a way to help seniors stay sharp mentally. USA Today provided some positive suggestions instead of video games...
- Keep stress levels low. Research shows it lifts mood and cognition.
- Stay aerobically healthy.
- Prevent or treat hypertension and diabetes.
- Find something that keeps your mind engaged — anything you find interesting.
Hmmm. Lower stress, go aerobic, control blood pressure and blood sugar, and stimulate your mind... Sounds exactly like a prescription for aikido or judo class!
