Learn music or a new language: People who are regularly exposed to more than one language have a lower risk of dementia in old age than others.

Play intellectual games: Recall easily forgotten words and images with intellectual games to help refresh brain structure, thereby improving memory.

Maintain social communication: Integrating and adapting to society stimulates cognitive activities such as thinking, intuition, and reasoning.
