Summer is here in a big way splashing the heat and humidity upon us. This is a great time of the year to get outdoors and is far better than shoveling a foot of snow off the driveway. Being able to move outdoors is a great opportunity to expand our list of activities and to increase quality time with our brain health lifestyle ®.

Consider the following 20 activities as part of your daily routine:

  1. Take a daily walk and use Arookoo (www.arookoo.com) or a pedometer count your steps.
  2. Go swimming, as it is good aerobic exercise and will cool your body.
  3. Get the bike out and ride around the block a few times.
  4. Play some sports with the kids.
  5. Cook some fish and chicken on the grill.
  6. Enjoy a cool salad on the deck.
  7. Enjoy a glass of red wine.
  8. Read the book you have been holding.
  9. Kids get started on your summer reading.
  10. Go to a sporting event as a family.
  11. Go to the zoo as a family.
  12. Go to a theme park or water park.
  13. Enjoy a vacation together.
  14. Increase your hours of sleep.
  15. Get involved in a hot yoga class.
  16. Pray daily.
  17. Attend a formal place of worship with the family.
  18. Take a walk in the woods or on the beach.
  19. Plant your garden and clean the yard.
  20. Drink plenty of water.

Consider this a reasonably good start to a brain healthy summer! Take it one step at a time and your body and brain will thank you.

    Lots of regular ideas but haven’t previously seen worship as useful for brain health. Great if it works as I do that regularly
