CHEYENNE – At any age, there are lifestyle habits we can adopt to help maintain or even potentially improve our health. These habits may also help to keep our brains healthy as we age, and possibly delay the onset of cognitive decline.

To help people age well, the Wyoming chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association is offering the Healthy Living for Your Brain and Body: Tips from the Latest Research program. This workshop covers four areas of lifestyle habits that are associated with healthy aging: cognitive activity; physical health and exercise; diet and nutrition; and social engagement.

In each area, discussion will focus on what is known, drawing on current research, as well as what can be done – steps to take now to improve or maintain overall health in each area.

The workshop will be held from 1:30-3 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 12, at the Laramie County Library, 2200 Pioneer Ave. The program is free and appropriate for the general public.
