Keep Moving to Fight Memory Loss

There are many ways to help prevent cognitive decline and keep your gray matter in top shape.

Movers and Shakers

Research has shown a combination of activities and lifestyle choices may keep the brain healthy. Here are some ways to keep your mind agile and your memory resilient:

1. Participate in recreational activities like chess, book clubs and discussion groups that encourage conversation and interaction

2. Implement activities that require planning and forethought like gardening and scrapbooking

3. Challenge yourself to complete common activities in reverse order or with the opposite hand (i.e. brushing teeth, getting dressed, etc.)

4. Keep low-impact aerobic activities like dancing, cycling and swimming as part of your routine

Don’t Forget to Remember

Recent studies have shown a strong correlation between vascular health and the influence of an active lifestyle. There are also activities that have been proven to increase memory retention. Give these a try and see if you experience improved memory capacity:

1. Stay mentally active by working puzzles, learning to play a musical instrument or taking alternate routes when driving

2. Socialize regularly with loved ones and friends or by volunteering with people of various ages

3. Keep your appointments, tasks and other events organized in a single place or notebook

4. Focus on one task at a time and give it your full attention

5. Eat a healthy diet and include supplements like ReversAge® to promote youthfulness

6. Make regular checkups at your doctor a part of your routine, particularly if you are managing chronic conditions

You’re only as old as you feel, so treat your body well and remember to laugh and play. Surround yourself with young friends (especially the young at heart) and don’t be afraid to act like a kid. When you reconnect with your younger self, you’ll think and feel your best!

Reliv Fan Turns 100

clip_image001 A century of living and serving others hasn’t stopped Lester Reed, of Overland Park, Kansas, from staying active, enjoying each day and whistling a happy tune.
Lester, who celebrated his 100th birthday September 10, 2009, lives with his daughter, Senior Director Ardie Warner and her husband, Chuck. He still takes their two dachshunds for long daily walks, travels, studies his Bible, reads, works word search puzzles and does yard work.

“Dad’s been taking Reliv products with us for the last seven years,” says daughter Ardie. “It’s provided the ideal nutritional support for his continued good health.”

Lester has lived through 100 years of American history, spanning 18 presidencies, the Roaring Twenties, the Great Depression and two World Wars. He’s seen everything from the modernization of cars to the advent of the World Wide Web.

Ardie, a retired art teacher, has been in the Reliv business for seven years. She says Reliv has given the family not only better health, but also some valuable flexibility with their time.

“I’m an only child, so I feel blessed to be home spending each precious day with my Dad while we do this business,” she says.

Lester, happy 100th birthday from your Reliv family!
