She has FUN!  An important part of living a long, healthy life is social interactions and FUN!

Here are the Mayo Clinic’s recommendations for preventing dementia.

They include keeping your mind active and being socially engaged.

Here’s what Dr. Sklar has to say:
I started playing ukulele three years ago to sharpen my mind.  I hadn’t played an instrument since I was a child.  I knew that learning new skills is an important part of keeping the brain healthy and functioning well as we age. My husband bought me a beautiful ukulele for my birthday four years ago and I found a group of people in Long Beach who are devoted to playing.  We get together every week and play for 2-3 hours.  When I started playing, I mainly was thinking about the brain benefits, but it turned out to be so much fun!  I’ve made a bunch of new friends who love playing as much as I do.  It’s an important part of my week.

Figure out how you can expand your mind, socialize and have FUN. Your healthy, long lifespan depends on it!
