Wellness for the Heart and Mind

Wellness for the Heart and Mind

Dear Friends:

This month is National Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness and Family Caregiver Month. While researchers continue to look for a cause and a cure, they have discovered a potential connection between Alzheimer’s disease and cardiovascular disease. Conditions that can damage the heart and blood vessels - like high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, diabetes and high cholesterol – may increase the risk of Alzheimer’s and vascular dementia.

That means focusing on an overall wellness program is important not only for a healthy heart but also a healthy mind. Here are some ways you may benefit both:

  • Eat brain food. According to the Alzheimer’s Association website, your brain is nourished by one of your body’s richest networks of blood vessels; brain cells use at least 20% of the food and oxygen your blood carries.

  • Exercise. The website also suggests that exercise may directly help brain cells by increasing the flow of blood and oxygen. A workout like our Cardio, Core and Calm program combines kickboxing, core work and yoga to refresh body, mind and spirit.

  • Diet. Heart-healthy eating patterns, like a Mediterranean diet, may help protect the brain.

  • Manage stress. For caregivers, increased stress can put their own health and wellness at risk. Take preventative steps, like taking a yoga class or scheduling a massage, for a time out to relax the mind and body, and lower blood pressure.

  • Learn more about how your brain works. The Alzheimer’s Association has an excellent virtual slide show that helps explain the ins and outs of our body’s most powerful organ.
