New research suggests that having a busy schedule may help your cognitive function, Medical Daily reports.
For the study, researchers observed 330 men and women between the ages of 50 to 89 and found that those individuals with busy lives “tend to fare better on cognitive functions tests than their less busy peers.”
“Living a busy lifestyle appears beneficial for mental function. However, further studies are needed to determine whether manipulations of busyness have the same effect,” said Sara Festini, lead author of the study.
Other studies have demonstrated that an active lifestyle combined with daily exercise can also improve cognition and slow down brain aging.
