March is National Brain Injury Awareness month. This year’s awareness campaign is called “Not Alone” and its mission is to educate, empower and promote support for the needs of people who have brain injuries and their loved ones.
In the U. S., 137 people die every day because of a traumatic, brain-related injury or disability. In relation to this, according to a study done by Vani Rao, from the Department of Psychiatry at Johns Hopkins University and School of Medicine, neuropsychiatric symptoms (NPS) are common after concussion and are typically not permanent, often resolving in 7–10 days. In some cases, NPS persist for months to years and cause cognitive impairments, emotional disturbances and/or behavioral problems.
Start taking care of your brain. It is one of the most important organs in your body. Keep your brain healthy by following these tips:
– Exercise regularly to help improve your blood flow, memory and relieve stress.
– Practice brain exercises. It lowers the chance of developing dementia.
– Change your diet! Eating more Mediterranean foods can help with blood flow and it lowers the risk of Alzheimer’s.
– Spend quality time with your loved ones for support and to help reduce stress.
– Sleep 6 hours or more every night to help improve mood and boost your immune system.
– Medical conditions, like hearing loss, should be treated because it is linked to declining brain function.
