Frequently, it is said that long hour of computer activity gives rise to health problems, particularly diseases out of sedentary lifestyle. Those include obesity, diabetes, heart problem and neck pain etc.
It is reported from Mayo clinic that combined computer and physical activity lessens the chance of getting mild cognitive impairment (MCI). Moderate physical activity includes brisk walking or biking. This was published in US HHS HealthBeat on September 16, 2010. The researcher was Yonas Geda from Mayo Clinic. He was examining 926 people ages 70 through 90.

People with some forgetfulness can use a variety of techniques that may help them stay healthy and maintain their memory and mental skills. Here are some tips that can help to keep memory sharp:
•    Plan tasks, make “to do” list, and use memory aids like notes and calendars. Some people find they remember things better if they mentally connect them to other meaningful things, such as a familiar name, song, book, or TV show.
•    Develop interests or hobbies and stay involved in activities that can help both the mind and body.
•    Engage in physical activity and exercise. Several studies have associated exercise (such as walking) with better brain function, although more research is needed to say for sure whether exercise can help to maintain brain function or prevent or delay symptoms of Alzheimer’s.
•    Limit alcohol use. Although some studies suggest that moderate alcohol use has health benefits, heavy or binge drinking over time can cause memory loss and permanent brain damage.
•    Find activities, such as exercise or a hobby, to relieve feelings of stress, anxiety, or depression. If these feelings last for a long time, talk with your doctor.
