Remedy against dementia

Seid Ihr gefährdet, an Demenz zu erkranken?

Glasses: Marc Jacobs / Cashmere sweater: H&M / Leather jacket: Asos /
Bag: Prada / Skirt: Gina Tricot / Shoes: Steve Madden

Denn mein lieber Mann hat zufällig das Buch „Digitale Demenz“ von Manfred Spitzer geschenkt bekommen, das ich mir auch vor einiger Zeit kaufte, und entsprechend unserem Temperament haben wir leidenschaftlich über den Inhalt des Buchs diskutiert.

Manfred Spitzer vertritt unter anderem grob zusammengefasst die Meinung, dass das Gehirn regelmäßig trainiert werden muss, und dass dies vor allem durch Lebenserfahrung sowie durch die Bewältigung immer neuer Herausforderungen geschieht. In dem Moment, wo Aufgaben nur noch standardmäßig und in vielen Wiederholungen abgearbeitet werden, kann es passieren, dass Synapsen im Gehirn verkümmern. Allerdings soll laut Manfred Spitzer auch darauf geachtet werden, sich nicht zu sehr unter Stress zu setzen, da sich dies ebenfalls nachteilig auswirkt.

Mir gefällt die Theorie von Manfred Spitzer und auch mein Mann stimmt ihm zu. Denn ich bin der Meinung, dass das Gehirn wie ein Muskel und der gesamte Körper überhaupt ständig trainiert werden müssen, um Fitness und Beweglichkeit zu garantieren. Und letztlich sind die Herausforderungen und Aufgaben, die uns das Leben stellt, meiner Meinung nach für unsere Entwicklung sehr wichtig, und ich denke, ein eher „gemütliches“ Leben, dass sich über Jahrzehnte Tag für Tag in ähnlicher Form wiederholt, hat die eher entgegengesetzte Wirkung – und möglicherweise sogar eine Demenz zur Folge.

Also werde ich weiter mit Nachdruck versuchen, mich zu fordern und neuen Herausforderungen zu stellen, das macht mir ja schon grundsätzlich viel Spaß, aber jetzt habe ich sogar noch einen sehr guten Grund dies zu tun.

Kennt Ihr das Buch von Manfred Spitzer? Was glaubt Ihr, schützt vor Demenzerkrankungen? Seid Ihr glücklicher bei Herausforderungen oder wenn Euer Leben gleichförmig verläuft?

Und natürlich habe mich auch für mein heutiges Outfit mit dem schwarz-weißen Volantrock, dem weißen Kaschmirpulli, der schwarzen Biker-Lederjacke und den schwarzen Boots mit den goldenen Nieten, die fast so wie die Susanna-Boots von Chloé aussehen, herausgefordert, jetzt mit dem guten Gewissen, meinem Gehirn einen Gefallen getan zu haben …

Ich wünsche Euch von Herzen einen wunderbaren Sonntag!


Is there the risk that you develop a dementia?

Because my lovely husband recently got as a gift the book "Digital Dementia" by Manfred Spitzer. I bought this book some time ago and accordingly our temperament we discussed passionately about the contents of the book.


Briefly summarized Manfred Spitzer has the opinion that the brain needs to be trained on a regularly basis, and that this is done mainly by experience of life as well as coping with new challenges. If tasks are only standard and processed in many repetitions, it may happen that synapses in the brain become stunted. However, according to Manfred Spitzer it is also important to be not to much under stress, as this has also an adverse effect.


I like the theory by Manfred Spitzer and my husband agrees to him, too. Because I am of the opinion that the brain is like a muscle and the whole body must be ever trained continuously to ensure fitness and agility. And finally I think, the challenges and tasks that life gives us are very important for our personal development, and I think a more "comfortable" life that repeats itself over decades, day after day in a similar form, has the rather opposite effect - and possibly even dementia as a result.


So I will continue vigorously to challenge myself and adopt new challenges, which basically makes me already a lot of fun, but now I have even a very good reason to continue in this way.


Do you know the book "Digital dementia" by Manfred Spitzer? What do you think protects against dementia? Are you more happy if you have more challenges in your life or if your life is more equably?


And of course, I have challenged me for my outfit of today with the flounced black-and-white patterned skirt, the black biker jacket, the white cashmere sweater and the black stutted boots, which nearly look like the Susanna-Boots from Chloé - now even with the good conscience, that I have done a favor for my brain ...


Have a wonderful Sunday!

  3. Hi! Many things to say: 1) I reviewed your haircut post because I thought you cut it as a boy but was just the bangs! And that, I'm not afraid, sometimes I cut myself because I do not like going to the hairdresser. 2)Now I'm with a lot of things to do in my studies, and it is only the beginning, actually it is a very long period and I am filled with anxiety, but I try to take many breaks in the day. I agree with you and your husband, the brain must also trained, in fact I would like to continue my studies of german (I was starting but I could not continue) and that's a wonderfull remedy for brain activity! fot sure! I love your look today, it lets us see your great silhouette and nice legs. ;-D

    AJM , my colaborator, signed the weekend articles, as a man always looks masculine and international things to talk about. Kiss!! Have a nice sunday!!

    1. Hi! Thanks a lot for saying so many interesting and nice things: 1) You are right, I really just cut the bangs :) And I neither like it to go to the hairdresser and cut often myself my hair! 2) I can imagine that you have not only good feelings regarding your studies, but to be honest I´m sure you´ll be manage them really successful as I got already the impression that you are an absolutely clever and hard working woman. Further I´m convinced that you´ll be able learn German very soon as you already speak so many languages. Thanks a lot for your kind feedback, I like it to wear skirts but often it´s more comfortable for my daily life to wear pants :)

      Kiss <3 Have a nice week!

    2. Sometimes I have a feeling I use my brain too much:) but maybe is just that I concentrate too much on certain things. With time I have realized how good it is to try new things because that both relaxes and stimulates us. No matter how much I like to read about certain things and subjects, I try to always be open for new things, even those that I don't seem to be good at. I have a feeling that it is especially beneficial for the brain to try to do things we aren't sure we can do:)

    3. What you describe above, dear Ivana, is one of the reasons why I really appreciate you! I like it so much that you are always open for new things and that you have the courage to try so much new things, not only because I believe also that things we aren´t sure we can do are beneficial for the brain.

  15. Den Rock finde ich wunderschön und die Boots sehen fabelhaft dazu aus, perfekt darauf abgestimmt die Jacke und die Tasche. Du hast wirklich einen unverwechselbaren, tollen Stil! Das von dir erwähnte Buch kenne ich und stimme darin überein, dass das Gehirn ein Muskel ist, der regelmäßig trainiert werden muss. Ich denke, verschiedene, stimulierende Impulse sind unverzichtbar, um fit und gedanklich beweglich zu bleiben.

  27. Sehr schöner Look!
    Rock und Schuhe sind ja super!

    Ich glaube schon, dass man sich töglich herausfordern muss, es heißt ja nicht umsonst wer rastet der rostet. Wenn ich mal zu lange nichts großartiges für mein Gehirn mache (Hallo gammel Wochenenden vor Pro7 und RTL) dann merke ich schon, dass am Montag alles ein bisschen langsamer geht. Aber meine beste Freundin meinte eh, ich wäre so wissbegierig dass ich nie zu lange nichts mache :D

Und daher bist Du meiner Ansicht nach auch gar nicht gefährdet, an dieser Krankheit zu erkranken :)

  40. Lovely outfit, Rena. As for the book, I've never heard of it, but agree that brain does need to be challenged on a daily basis in order to remain active. Stress can definitely affect it because it can damage the coating surrounding the neurons whilst good healthy food, good fats (omega 3 & 6), a little coffee (latest research) and avoidance of sugar/refined carbs/gluten will all benefit in a long run. :)

    Ich kenne das Buch nicht, aber ich werde mich kundig machen im Internet. Du weisst ja, dass meine Grosstante an fortschreitender Demenz leidet, zur Zeit sucht sie ihre Mutter, aber die ist schon seit 1990 tot, sie wurde 90 Jahre alt, und auch sie litt unter Demenz. Ich hoffe, es bringt was, wenn man sein Gehirn immer aktiv hält, ich persönlich glaube daran, es heisst ja "Mens sana in Corpora sano".

  48. You chose a great topic! My boyfriend has a true phobia of developing dementia and got himself tons of books about it and how to prevent it, although I haven't seen this one in his collection. It probably hasn't been translated in English yet, that's why... Anyhow, I agree with all of you, a brain is a muscle and we need to train it, because later on, when you get older and you develop signs, it's basically too late to do anything. And pills don't help much - I know, I have a demented grandmother... But I've actually never heard of the stress factor! This kind of worries me, because it's really hard to turn off stress, isn't it? You can say that you won't stress as much, but in the end, you stress anyway. It's kind of a vicious circle...

    ReplyDelete

    1. Obviously your boyfriend is also really clever (like you) and I think it´s great that he is so familiar with this important topic! I don´t know it for sure but it could really be that this book hasn´t been translated in English. Thanks for your agreement, I neither believe in pills. I think there are two types of stress, the positive one - which we in German call “Eustress” and the negative stress, the “Disstress”. Positive stress gives us energy and the negative stress destroys us and the brain regarding this theory. I think all of us should really care of ourselves and change our life if there is too much distress in our life. And nobody is able to change our life than we by our own …

  55. Hast du die Fotos von Fausto Podavini zum Thema Demenz gesehen? Total berührend: http://www.faustopodavini.eu/project/mirella.html Ich versuche, mit meinen Eltern so viel schöne Momente wie nur möglich zu erleben und feste Erinnerungen zu erschaffen. Wichtig finde ich, dass meine Eltern nicht immer nur in ihrer gleichen Routine leben, sondern sich auch mit neuartigen Dingen beschäftigen, so dass sie beständig was Neues dazu lernen. Ob das was hilft, weiß ich natürlich nicht, aber es gibt mir ein gutes Gefühl und verbindet. Bin auf jeden Fall gespannt, was die Wissenschaft die nächsten Jahrzehnte dazu noch heraus findet! Toller Blog mit interessantem Inhalt! Liebe Grüße aus Berlin

Ich finde es toll und sehr nachahmenswert, welchen Vorsatz Du in Bezug auf Deine Eltern gefasst hast und offenbar auch umsetzt – ein gutes Gefühl bringt meiner Meinung nach immer positive Energie und verbindet auf jeden Fall! Hoffentlich macht die Wissenschaft auch in dieser Richtung noch weiter Fortschritte, denn für mich liegt hier immer noch vieles im Dunkeln … Ganz besonders freue ich mich über Dein Feedback, das tut mir richtig gut!

  61. Well I don't hope so! Never heard of the book, though. I would die of boredom living a life where nothing happens, routine day in day out? Nope that would be hell! Lovely outfit Rena, love the skirt and the look on you.

  64. Haven't read that book, looks like an interesting book to read :) Agree with you we need to feed our brain with information like how we feed our stomach with food, also eat lots of fish, its a food for the brain. You are such a sweetheart Rena, such a young and fresh look, love this look on you :)

  69. Dementia is a scary thing. I hope I never get it or anyone I know. I definitely agree with you that the brain is like a muscle. Have you heard of the website called luminosity?? It's an American website specifically for you brain! There are lots of exercises and mental puzzles to help train your brain. Love the look. The jacket is my favorite part. I love the quilted sleeves. It's very biker-chic. Love the skirt as well, I love the different layers and the black and white design. Such an edgy yet girly look especially with the boots! : )

  70. To be honest, the way I am sometimes forgetting a lot of thing, I am scared that I may end up with dementia. For the first time in 7 years I forgot my boyfriend's birthday and I am so ashamed of myself that I don't even know what to say to him. I just don't understand how it happened and things are a bit tense. Do you have any remedies or tips that could help with brain activity?

    1. You shouldn´t worry, dear Naaj, you have so many other things in your brain and it happens that we forget such things. I think you brain is already really active as you write and blog and last but not least you´re working. In my opinion every activity for which we need our brain in an active way is helpful for the brain. And if you would like to read the comment above, Anna as an obviously great tip for the brain :)

    2. Yes I read the comment Rena. I have already downloaded puzzles and word games on my iPhone to help me with brain activity.

      I should be able to prioritise things and things are just getting worse. Please if you can, keep me in your thoughts. Thank you so much xx

    3. You are always in my thoughts, dear Naaj, I wish you the best and love <3 xx
