Walk to End Alzheimer’s (Video courtesy – Alz.org)
I have a very limited budget, I spend between $15.00 to $40.00 a month on charity work. So my nephew, Edward from Vegas helped me out with this project. Together we have donated 81 books to Alzheimer’s families and for Alzheimer’s cause. I want them to read the Alzheimer’s chapter and follow a healthy diet, exercise and a healthy lifestyle.
Dr. Amen has written several books on Brain, Dementia, Alzheimer’s and Memory. In his book, “Magnificent Mind At Any Age,” page 19, he writes how to improve your brain reserve.
“Here are a number of ways to do it:
Make positive social connections.
Engage in new learning.
Maintain a healthy diet.
Take a fish oil supplement.
Dance (of course, without drinking).
Engage in positive thinking.
If you wish to stay healthy during stressful times, you need adequate brain reserve. Start working today to add more neurons to your life.”

You don’t need money, just a little time to give mental support and be kind to all. Check on the elderly, bring their Newspaper to their door in bad weather, say hello to your neighbors when you see them, wish them happy holidays and birthdays etc. Call your parents, grandparents, aunts, and uncles; talk to them to make sure they are not lonely, thank the soldiers when you see them for keeping us safe; thank priests, police officers, teachers, postal workers, newspaper persons, trash collectors for their services. Write notes to a lonely and unknown person and make his or her day. These acts of kindness have a trickle-down effect.
