There are brain-boosting benefits to solving crosswords, playing chess and completing puzzles. • Talk to people. Engage in conversations about current events, books, mu- sic, sports and more. • Eat a balanced diet. Make sure to follow the recommendations in Canada’s Food Guide. • Exercise regularly. Keep in mind that it’s easier to staymotivated if you choose activities you enjoy
