I used to take tai chi before my stroke and want to start up again now that I have recovered. Will tai chi help keep me fit to drive?
Tai chi, along with yoga and other exercise programs, is a great way to improve your balance, overall physical fitness and physical ability to drive. You should check with your doctor before starting a new fitness or exercise program, though – even if you participated in the past. Failing to do so could lead to an injury and even limit your ability to walk or drive.
I love to do crossword and Sudoku puzzles. Will this help keep my mind sharp?
Completing puzzles and games like these can help you stay mentally fit, but always try to look for challenging activities that stimulate the mind and help to improve your cognitive performance. If games and puzzles are fun for you to complete, then try to increase the difficulty of the puzzles you select over time.
