June 27, 2018
This month's successful aging tip from onPointe - wellness for life is: Challenge your brain. Brain fitness impacts all aspects of our life and is often neglected once we cease working.

Exciting and optimistic research tells us we are the architects of our brain, with the ability to REWIRE OUR OWN BRAIN in response to learning and experience.
