The Answer

Any physical exercise is good for you and may protect you from developing dementia. This could be fast walking, cycling or swimming, or any exercise that you can do and enjoy.

The three exercises described in the article ‘Give your brain a work-out’ are aimed at improving balance. Click here to view the article. The exercises mentioned include: standing on one leg and turning your head from side to side; standing on one leg and bending the knee slowly; and standing on one leg, bending the knee and reaching forward with the toes of the other foot.
