Keeping your brain sharp

I just read an article on Yahoo about how to keep your brain sharp as you age. One of the things they listed was planning your future. The article said...

"People who regularly made plans and looked forward to upcoming events had a 50 percent reduced risk of Alzheimer’s disease, according to a recent study. But don’t worry if your calendar isn’t overflowing with life-changing events. Something as simple as setting a goal to have a weekly coffee date with a friend (and keeping it) will do. "Psychologically it keeps us motivated," Dr. Edgerly says. 'There's evidence that people who have a purpose in life or who are working on long-or short-term goals appear to do better.' In other words, keep your brain looking forward."
