Dr. Bradford Dickerson, a neurologist at Harvard-affiliated Massachusetts General Hospital and his colleagues have been studying super-agers for several years. Their results suggest that embracing new mental challenges may be the key to preserving both brain tissue and brain function.

Embrace mental challenges – crossword puzzles, mathematical games. Try doing something yourself that you would have hired someone else to do in the past

Increase your exercise capacity. Increase three factors — the intensity, duration, and frequency of your workouts. Try to exercise at that level for 20 to 40 minutes, three to five days a week.

Prepare to be frustrated. Patience and perseverance are key to mastering challenges.

Don’t let your age deter you. As long as you are physically up to a challenge, your years shouldn’t hold you back.

Get going with a group. You may find it easier to take on new challenges if you’re in the company of other beginners.
