The brain is a vital organ that plays a crucial role in our lives. The brain is the main organ of the central nervous system, found in all vertebrates and most invertebrates.

In this photo gallery, we explore five simple steps you can follow to preserve your brain and keep it functioning at its best. 

Discover the secrets to a healthy and active mind!

Brain feeding
A healthy, balanced diet promotes a healthy body, as well as a healthy brain. Consume foods rich in nutrients beneficial for brain health, such as fish, nuts, green leafy vegetables, berries and whole grains. These foods provide antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids and essential vitamins that promote a healthy mind.
Mental exercise
The brain needs constant stimulation to stay active and strong. Engage in activities that mentally challenge your brain, such as reading, solving puzzles, playing board games or learning new skills. Regular mental exercise improves memory, concentration and cognitive abilities.
Physical activity
Physical activity benefits the body, and also has a positive impact on the brain. Regular exercise increases blood flow to the brain, promotes the growth of new brain cells and encourages communication between the cells themselves. Devote at least 30 minutes a day to physical activity, which can be a walk, a light jog or a yoga session.
Quality sleep
Sleep is crucial for general well-being and brain health. During sleep, the brain rests, regenerates and consolidates information learnt during the day. Make sure you get at least 7-8 hours of quality sleep each night, creating a regular routine and an environment conducive to rest.
Socialization and social activities
Positive social relationships have a significant impact on brain health. Participating in social activities and socialising with others stimulates the brain, reduces stress and improves memory and cognitive functions. Get involved in group activities, attend community events or volunteer to keep your brain active and engaged.
Taking care of your brain is essential for living a healthy and active life. By following these five ways - proper nutrition, mental exercise, physical activity, quality sleep and socialising - you can foster a young and active mind. Take care of your brain and enjoy a life full of mental health and well-being.
