It’s one of our bodies most precious and marvelous possessions.  It weighs approximately 3 lbs and is in total command of your body. Your brain and your personality are interconnected, it makes us who we are. This incredible organ can redesign itself and is continuously shaped and transformed by experience and the way it’s looked after. Perhaps as you are getting older you sense your brain is sluggish, dimmer, your memory is poor or your getting forgetful. What can we do about it?

Chicken Soup for the Soul ~ Boost Your Brain Power is a book of real stories about people improving the way their brain functions. It may surprise you the different avenues people took to improve themselves.

Chapter One:  Invest in Your Brain
The first story is about a mom who after raising her children decided to re-enter the business world. At a recent luncheon she found it difficult to interact with people.  She had a hard time coming up with interesting things to say.  Her son, who is an actor, suggested she take Improv classes.  It’s a form of comedy where the actor must spontaneously create scenes based on the suggestions of the audience. Her son said it keeps is mind sharp and prepares him for whatever role he may have in the future. She realized there was more to it than responding to a comment. They did exercises that stretched their listening and memory skills which sharpen your brain.  She had to learn how to ad lib which she found difficult. Gradually these classes too her out of her comfort zone and she was able to react/respond spontaneously in various situations.

Others have used taking notes, learning a new word every day, dancing, numbers game and meditation. The book is loaded with lots of ideas that will prompt you to choose your means of improving your brain function and trigger creative thinking.

Personally I like the word a day.  As a young child I use to love reading the dictionary. Why? Not sure but somehow along the way I forgot to do this.

We can’t expect our brain or body to thrive if we feed it garbage. Our brains will function so much better if we eat healthier foods, drink clean water, adequate sleep and get our exercise in a few times a week.  Don’t be tricked into thinking that your too old to change your brain.  Not true! You can improve now at any age!

    Too much to keep track off. your brain gets overloaded and takes time to come up with something that is filed away in there.

    Absolutly much harder to remember simple things, that are important though it seems to just have “slipped my mind”.

    Definitely! What a coincidence even– just today, I told my friend that I was getting my jacket from my locker and after I opened it, I put papers into my bag, walked away from my locker then realized I forgot my main objective just moments later…

    I’m only eighteen and I have such bad memory! I also have some learning disabilities. I’m looking for something to maybe help a little.

    October 22- I am not surprised that you love this Burt’s Bees product. I was so surprised when I bought some of their moisturizing lotion. The aroma was beautiful and the moisturizer was so good for my skin. It made me a Burt’s Bees fan for life. Thank you, Burt’s Bees and Pawsitively Living for this wonderful giveaway.

    Yes. Having had a parent with Alzheimer’s disease, I am always taking steps in hopes of preventing such a thing happening to me–exercise, proper diet, supplements and socialization.
