Check Your Brain’s Health

Your brain cells die, and your memory deteriorates as you age. If you easily get stressed out, you need to check your brain’s condition. Your brain is largely affected by four factors: nutrition, oxygen, touch, and emotion. You can check your brain’s condition through your life habits.
