If you suffer from a sleep disorder like sleep apnea, consult your doctor immediately to get it treated, as this condition results in less oxygen delivered to your brain while you’re asleep.
During sleep is a critical time for a number of brain functions – for example, sleeping helps retain memories and lessons from the previous day.
#3: Don’t skimp on fresh air!
 Getting outdoors and exercising regularly will help lower inflammation, reduce blood sugar levels, normalise stress levels and promote weight loss.
#4: Stop smoking and drinking
You should stop using tobacco products and alcohol. If you need help quitting these unhealthy habits, reach out for help or have a chat with your doctor.
#5: Take herbal supplements
Herbal supplements like Boswellia and N-acetylcysteine (NAC) are loaded with powerful antioxidants that help fight inflammation-causing free radicals.
Other inflammation-lowering supplements you can take include white willow bark and meadowsweet – both natural sources of salicylate acid; the active ingredient in aspirin.
#6: Go for acupuncture
Research has proven that particular head acupoints help with cerebral blood flow and, in turn, help prevent stroke.
By making these six simple lifestyle changes, you can significantly lower your risk of stroke.
