Getting older doesn’t mean you have to lose your mind. Believe it or not, it’s possible to lead a full and active – physically and mentally – life as a 50, 60, 70 and even 80 something. With these five tips, you can keep getting better with time!

1. Get moving.

Sneaking in at least 30 minutes of exercise three to four days a week helps give your brain the extra boost that it needs. Say hello to better cognitive function, as well as reduced risks for Alzheimer’s disease, depression, heart disease and type 2 diabetes.

2. Keep learning.

As we age, it becomes especially important for us to exercise not only our bodies but our minds as well. Learning a new language, reading a good, long book, and solving brain teasers and puzzles are great ways to stimulate areas of the brain that you wouldn’t normally use.

3. Drink tea.
