A recent study by The Mayo Clinic concluded people who did artwork such as painting, drawing, woodworking, sculpting and quilting in their middle and old ages were 73 percent less likely to develop mild cognitive impairment (MCI) than those who did not. Socialization through movies, travel and book clubs led to a 55-percent reduction, with crafting a close third at 45 percent. Activities to stimulate the brain and teach it new things, the study showed, are preventive strategies for MCI that may need to begin in midlife and continue through later years.
