I want very much for you to grab your own copy of this book, so I don’t want to give much away. However, I will share one of the tips with you: #44 Google Something! Surfing the internet actually exercises your brain.
It’s a scientific fact: doing an Internet search can stimulate aging brains even more than reading a book.

Such constant decision making “engages important cognitive circuits in the brain,” say researchers, giving your brain a significant workout. Mental exercise, like physical exercise, appears to strengthen your brain’s resistance to mental decline and Alzheimer’s. – Pages 132 – 133, 100 Simple Things You Can Do to Prevent Alzheimer’s
