Regular exercise is also important for strengthening the nervous system.
A 2005 study published in Current Sports Medicine Reports points out that regular exercise has profound effects on numerous biologic systems in the body, including the central nervous system, and can influence psychological well-being and cognitive function.
Walking, running, jogging, swimming, and bicycling are some exercises that can be helpful in keeping the nervous system healthy.
You can always talk to your doctor about exercises that will be right for you.

An Epsom salt bath is also good for your nervous system. It helps muscles and nerves function properly. The magnesium in it also helps increase the mood-elevating serotonin in the brain, which reduces stress and promotes relaxation.
- Add 1 cup of Epsom salt to warm bathwater and stir thoroughly.
- Soak in this water for 20 minutes.
- Enjoy an Epsom salt bath once or twice a week.
