Dakim Recommends Six New Year Resolutions to Stay Cognitively Fit
Date:2/3/2009

SANTA MONICA, Calif., Feb. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- The most common New Year resolutions revolve around being healthier, but are usually focused on physical appearance: lose weight, tone up, exercise more, and eat less junk food.
