Keep Your Mental Edge as You Age



(Family Features) If you’ve ever walked into a room to look for something but forgot what you were looking for, you’re familiar with the feelings of forgetfulness and frustration. Unless you take immediate action, these feelings may worsen each year. There are easy lifestyle choices you can make every day to sustain your mental edge as you age. Cognitive decline, including memory loss, is one of the top fears among people over the age of 55. More than half of baby boomers fear the loss of mental capacity, and 41 percent are afraid their brain fitness has decreased in the past 10 years, according to a 2010 report in Today’s Dietitian.

“New research shows that by changing our lifestyle habits we can help grow key parts of our brains, resulting in better memory, improved learning speed and mental agility,” said Majid Fotuhi M.D., Ph.D., chairman of the Neurology Institute for Brain Health and Fitness in Baltimore.

Give your brain a physical workout Exercise helps maintain a healthy body and brain. Research has found associations between physical activity and reduced risk of cognitive decline. Give your body and brain a workout by engaging in physical activities such as yoga, walking and weight lifting, at least 30 minutes every day. It helps keep cholesterol levels in check, maintains good blood flow and encourages the growth of new brain cells and connections.

Nourish your mind Help protect your brain cells from memory loss by following a diet that includes foods rich in good fats such as DHA, a major structural fat accounting for up to 97 percent of the omega-3 fats in the brain. DHA intake has been associated with a decreased risk of mental decline associated with aging. The body doesn’t make DHA on its own, so you need to consume DHA though food or supplements. “The more omega-3 fat you eat, the more it is incorporated into brain cells, the more flexible your brain cell membranes become, the better you think, the more you remember and the happier you are,” said Elizabeth Somer, M.A., registered dietitian and author of “Eat Your Way to Happiness.” You can find DHA in certain foods, but another easy way to get it is by

Stay socially connected Friends and family are often the key to happiness, and they just may be the key to brain health as well. Social interaction not only makes your life more fun and meaningful, but it also stimulates and protects your brain. Stay connected with others by being part of an in-person interaction, whether it’s in the workplace, a card club, a network of friends or a religious congregation. Seek out friends and family for emotional support to help manage stress and stay happy. Put your passions into action by volunteering for a cause you feel passionate about. By giving your brain a little more attention, you’ll not only lead a fuller life, but you’ll also be helping to keep your mental edge. For more about brain health, visit

Develop a “use it or lose it” philosophy when it comes to your brain. Studies have shown that brain cells, much like muscle cells, can grow bigger and stronger with cognitive challenges and stimulation. Pursuing education, learning a new language, reading, working crossword puzzles and even playing board games are fun ways to exercise your mind. Keep your brain active by engaging in brain-boosting activities you enjoy. Commit to learning something new each month.

Sesquicentennial Commemoration of the American Civil War The Battle Hymn of the Republic Julia Ward Howe (May 27, 1819 – October 17, 1910) was a prominent American abolitionist, social activist, and poet, most famous as the author of “The Battle Hymn of the Republic”. Julia Ward Howe was inspired to write “The Battle Hymn of the Republic” after she and her husband visited Washington, D. C. and met Abraham Lincoln at the White House in November 1861. During the trip, her friend James Freeman Clarke suggested she write new words to the song “John Brown’s Body”, which she did on November 19. The song was set to William Steffe’s already-existing music and Howe’s version was first published in the Atlantic Monthly in February 1862. It quickly became one of the most popular songs of the Union during the American Civil War. After the war Howe focused her activities on the causes of pacifism and women’s suffrage. In 1870 Howe was the first to proclaim Mother’s Day, with her Mother’s Day Proclamation. From 1872 to 1879, she assisted Lucy Stone and Henry Brown Blackwell in editing Woman’s Journal. After her husband’s death in 1876, Howe focused more on her interests in reform. She was the founder and president of the Association of American Women, a group which advocated for women’s education, from 1876 to 1897. During the last two decades of her life, she was interested in the cause of Russian freedom. Howe died of pneumonia at her home, Oak Glen, in Portsmouth, Rhode Island, at the age of 91.

First published in the Atlantic Monthly in February 1862 Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord: He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored; He hath loosed the fateful lightning of His terrible swift sword: His truth is marching on. (Chorus) Glory, glory, hallelujah! Glory, glory, hallelujah! Glory, glory, hallelujah! His truth is marching on. I have seen Him in the watch-fires of a hundred circling camps, They have builded Him an altar in the evening dews and damps; I can read His righteous sentence by the dim and flaring lamps: His day is marching on. (Chorus) Complete lyrics may be found online Source: Wikipedia. org

erkeley Springs, a fountainhead of warm mineral waters frequented by Native Americans long before Europeans arrived in the New World, are at the heart of a mountain spa community in West Virginia’s Eastern Panhandle. First noted as Medicine Springs in 1747 on a map drawn by Thomas Jefferson’s father, the waters for many centuries have drawn visitors seeking health and relief from the stress of everyday life. In 1776, George Washington’s family and friends drew up a plat of 134 lots, named the streets, and incorporated The Town of Bath, invoking the muses of the renowned English spa. Yet the magic of the springs prevailed, and the town and surrounding area are known by their name – Berkeley Springs. The waters flow at a constant 74°F from the base of Warm Springs Ridge. You may still drink freely and fill your jugs at Lord Fairfax’s public tap, and wade in the ancient stone pools in the nation’s smallest state park. The town has endured cycles of notoriety, fashion, war and modern progress, but remains the Country’s First Spa, a quiet, friendly haven surrounded by West Virginia’s splendid outdoors. ß www.vall ey rev ue .co m

Historic Hedgesville


edgesville is located in Skinner’s Gap on North Mountain, where the original Warm Springs Road (now WV9) passed through from Alexandria, Virginia to Bath (Berkeley Springs). An abundant spring drew the first settler and today serves as Town Spring marked by a protective structure. The spring is reportedly never affected by drought and the water is a persistent 57 degrees. In 1738, the Hedges family began to acquire land just east of the gap. During the French and Indian War in the 1750s, George Washington supervised the construction of a stockade fort in the gap called Fort Hedges. It was one of a string of forts constructed for protection against the French and their Indian allies. The town was laid out in 1832 and established as Hedgesville by the Virginia General Assembly in 1836. At that time, a law was passed making it unlawful to “sit or loiter about Town Spring drinking spirits.” The town was finally incorporated in 1854 and in 1870 the Town Council was given control of the springs. A number of antebellum historic structures still line the village streets, including many original log homes. The village is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
