Play with Children
Children have rich and vivid imaginations, which are directly linked to memories. By playing with children, you are part of their world. And this world is filled with unusual details you need to remember.
But, more importantly, doctors have noted that when an adult plays with a child, their levels of stress drastically decrease. Blood pressure, cortisol, heart rate, and perceived levels of stress are all decreased.
Doctors even suspect the balance of serotonin returns to better state. Research has been done on the depressed and it was found that playing with children helps reduce the markers for depression.
By increasing good moods, you help preserve your brain and its higher functions.
