THE IMPORTANCE OF COGNITIVE HEALTH
Cognition isn’t just our ability to think, learn and remember. It’s our ability to reason, make decisions, plan ahead, concentrate and judge right from wrong. Given all of that, we can see how crucial it is to keep our cognitive function tip top for as long as possible. Cognitive decline is an accepted part of the aging process, just like all the other facets of wear and tear on the human body.
But healthy aging is one thing... what about if one is younger?
Busy professional, multi-tasking lives can sometimes be overwhelming, but also frustrating. Take of instance the individual who rarely maintains enough energy to complete all of the workdays, get to the gym, find time to see the kids and have a normal work-life balance. then this can make you feel like you’re failing, or at least not be keeping up.
The natural aging process when it comes to our brains sometimes causes a type of plaque to build up in our neuron pathways. As the human body ages, β-amyloid peptide (Aβ) in the brain may accumulate naturally. This can possibly lead to a sense of cognitive decline. Aging is the inevitable process of human life.
