There’s an important lesson to be learned from a study involving Japanese sports clubs. And I’m not talking about exercise.
Sure, staying physically active is one of the best things you can do to help slow cognitive decline. You already know that.
But this study reminds us that for people with mild cognitive impairment, there’s something else that can be highly beneficial. And that’s social connection.
It today’s video, I talk about how isolation and loneliness can hasten cognitive loss, while staying socially engaged can help slow it down. (And you can get that benefit not just at the gym, but anywhere you engage with other people.)
