7 Travel



Exposing yourself to new, complex environments allows your brain to think and process new information. Have you ever pulled into your drive way and realized that you have no recollection of  your drive home? That’s because your brain recognizes the pattern you take every day with little effort. One study found that traveling may actually reduce the risk of dementia by keeping the brain active. New, challenging experiences boost cognitive function and helps the brain develop new nerve cells called dendrites.
