Fight Memory Loss with Art
BBC released an article on a study from Newcastle University that looked a three forms of exercises to determine which one would be most beneficial for memory retention. The first group worked on puzzles like Sudoku for three hours a week, while the second group walked for three hours a week. The final group was asked to take an art class for three hours a week. What was the end result?
By the end of the eight week trial everyone left feeling healthier or addicted to puzzles games, however the art group left the most enthusiastic. Not only that, the data from their cognitive tests showed that the group involved with art was the clear-cut winners.
