Buying a computer is better than knitting to ward off dementia

A recent study of nearly 2,000 over-70s by the Mayo Clinic in the US looked at how everyday computeractivities could ward off mental decline for older people over a four year period.

Silver surfers in their 70s are 42 per cent less likely to develop the mental problems which precede dementia, compared to technophobes.  Although knitting was found to have some benefit – reducing the risk of memory problems by 16 per cent – the pastime was nowhere near as effective as using a computer for as little as once a week.

“The results show the importance of keeping the mind active as we age,” said study author Dr Janina Krell-Roesch, of Mayo Clinic in Arizona.

It is thought that mentally stimulating activities help build up a ‘cognitive reserve’ of new brain cells and neural connections which offset deterioration cause by ageing.

Simply reading a magazine regularly was found to lower the chance of neurodegeneration by 30 per cent. Completing crosswords or other puzzles reduces the chance of neurodegeneration by 14 per cent.

People normally develop mild cognitive impairment before dementia, so preventing its onset is likely to delay conditions like Alzheimer’s disease.

People who engaged in social activities were 23 percent less likely to develop memory problems than those who did not engage in social activities.

For more information on this please visit the Mayo Clinic website.

If you or somebody you know suffers from memory loss or dementia please visit our www.clootietree.com for underwear and nightwear designed to help those with dementia.

3 Simple Tips to Improve Your Night’s Sleepnw5

  1. Your Bedroom – a clean, peaceful and welcoming bedroom will aid a better night’s sleep. Make sure your room it completely dark and invest in a blackout blind or curtains, or an eye mask might be a cheaper alternative. Your bedroom should not be too hot or too cold, around 16-18° C is recommended. Scents such as lavender and germanium are naturally calming, so invest in some essential oils to help you drift off.
  2. Your Bed – Do you ever wake up with neck or back ache? When lying in bed, do you feel springs or ridges beneath the surface? Avoid the ‘Seven Year Hitch’ – the point at which existing beds may still look good but are beginning to offer less support than a new one*. What better time than National Bed Month to invest in a better night’s sleep if your bed is seven years old or more? Take a look at our sister More Than Mobility’s website for our range of new electric adjustable beds.
  3. Your Lifestyle – The 21st century lifestyle is typically fast paced, chaotic and jam-packed with technology. From the moment we wake up, we’re continuously being fed content from smart phones, TV, radio and social media feeds. All this non-stop stimulation causes havoc when we’re trying to fall asleep. Switch off your tech a couple of hours before bedtime – that includes your phone! Also try reducing the intensity of artificial light in your home by using dimmer switches or low wattage bulbs.

Here’s hoping to your next great night’s sleep!
