Your loved one’s brain and body work together to help her to live her fullest life possible. Helping both to be as healthy as they can be might involve making some small changes to your loved one’s habits.
Exercise Does a Lot for Your Loved One’s Brain
Exercise helps to improve blood flow to all parts of your loved one’s body, including her brain. It’s also excellent for her body, helping her to use oxygen more efficiently. Always talk to your loved one’s doctor about what types and duration of exercise are safe for her before you start a new exercise program.
So Does Her Diet
If your loved one is more interested in comfort foods than she is in fresh fruits and vegetables, then a dietary overhaul might be in order. Working with a nutritionist can help you get a better idea what types of foods are best for your loved one’s specific health conditions. They can even help you find recipes that are healthier versions of your loved one’s favorite comfort foods without sacrificing flavor.
Find New Activities for Your Loved One
New exercises, such as yoga or even Pilates, are ways to get your loved one interested in exercise, but new activities can fire up her brain, too. Taking a class in something new, such as learning a language, can keep your loved one’s brain active and engaged. Likewise, learning to play an instrument, trying different games and puzzles, or even switching up some of the activities that she already enjoys can help.
Don’t Forget Rest and Sleep
Having down time and rest is just as important for your loved one’s brain and body as movement and activity are. If your loved one is having trouble sleeping, talk to her doctor to find potential solutions. Some loved ones have difficulty taking the time to rest, so do what you can to encourage your loved one to enjoy periods of rest when she can.
Having access to social interactions regularly also helps your loved one to stay mentally and physically active. Consider hiring home care services providers to stop by and visit with your loved one regularly.
