Prof Anstey has nine key recommendations for people concerned about maintaining a healthy brain and staving off cognitive decline, which she refers to as ‘future-proofing’ for your brain. Professor Anstey’s nine key recommendations to support brain health: Get physical; maintain a healthy weight; stop smoking; watch blood pressure; manage chronic conditions; avoid brain injuries; be socially engaged and stay mentally alert.
