What Have You Done for Your Brain, Lately?

Most of us take better care of our hair and skin than we do of our brains, yet our brains are critical to EVERY aspect of our lives. Since we are not born with instruction manuals for our brains, many of us go through life as best we can by adopting the choices and habits of our parents, families, communities, etc. and we don’t give our brains a second thought. This has potentially harmful and dangerous implications for us as we live, grow and age. The time to start caring for your brain is NOW!

The good news about our brains is that they can heal and change! What can I do for my brain, you may wonder? For the past several weeks on my radio show, I have been sharing strategies from Dr. Daniel Amen’s research and works, including Making a Good Brain Great, and Dr. John Medina’s Brain Rules. These segments are archived at www.BlogTalkRadio.com/SPARK so you can listen or download at your convenience.

Mental exercise is good for brain health. Learned anything new recently? I love helping people get the best from their brains and I have been facilitating an exciting seminar entitled, “Brain Boosters” through several venues the past few weeks, with great response. If you are interested in having your best brain at work and at home, this seminar is filled with resources for you. Contact me to bring this seminar to your business, school, organization, or community.

Physical exercise, according to both Dr. Amen and Dr. Medina, is a great place to start because it provides so many benefits to the brain. What benefits? Since it’s almost time for me to go exercise, I’ll quickly share the following from Dr. Medina’s site, www.BrainRules.net (The words in parentheses are my clarifications):

“Exercise improves cognition (thinking) for two reasons:
Exercise increases oxygen flow into the brain, which reduces brain-bound free radicals. One of the most interesting findings of the past few decades is that an increase in oxygen is always accompanied by an uptick in mental sharpness.
Exercise acts directly on the molecular machinery of the brain itself. It increases neurons` (brain cells) creation, survival, and resistance to damage and stress.”

Consider creating an action plan to support having a healthy brain for life – making one lifestyle change at a time. Do something positive for your brain TODAY because a healthy brain is a wonderful gift to give yourself and your loved ones!!
