The brain is an amazing organ – complex, fascinating and indispensable. Yet how many of us ignore our brain health? How do keep our brain healthy? If you are like me, you are busy multi-tasking, managing schedules, maintaining blogs, tweeting, and taking care of everyone’s problems and dirty laundry: note I mean that literally, with three teens, me and hubby, I’ve got tons of laundry. This is NOT my room. Hint: three teenagers.
If we neglect ourselves, we risk a slippery slope downward. I’ve been there, done that, and it was a long climb back up. In his book Brain Rules, author John Medina explores 12 simple principles to help you understand how the brain works, and most importantly, how to keep it working to your advantage. He has much more to say about enhancing learning, and the phenomenal functions of the brain. You can go check out his website and get a summary of the brain rules, or you can go take a nap…my husband was especially happy to learn the author is a big proponent of the mid-day power nap. I suggest you do both. Me, I’m off for a walk….
Brain rule #1 is exercise boosts brain power.
