We all want to improve or eliminate our chances of experiencing significant mental decline as we age. Research from the National Institute on Aging has determined that the following lifestyle traits were consistent in a test group of 2,500 persons older than 70 years of age and would likely contribute to maintaining and improving mental acuity.

The direct link between the lifestyle habit and the sharpness of the individual was difficult to prove. However, the results were consistent for the group and reflected the types of traits that a sharp, positive, active person would want to have and would likely possess.
