Perhaps you’ve heard the phrase “if you don’t use it, you’ll lose it”. And while this old adage can apply to a number of circumstances, it is perhaps most poignantly applied to the human brain. As we get older, many of us will experience some level of cognitive decline as our brains age alongside our bodies. However, by keeping sharp and staying engaged with the world around us, we can keep our minds active and strong for years to come. Whether it’s through taking a new class or partaking in a new hobby, mental stimuli can play a major role in maintaining our quality of life as we get older. And here in the Garden State, now it’s easier than ever to train your brain to perform at its best.
