Use Your Brain - Grow Your Memory
You've taken the first step...so let's get started! (Remember this is all FREE!)
We’ve all heard ”Use it or Lose it" when referring to exercise and keeping our bodies flexible and strong,
But this saying applies not only to the health of our bodies, but very importantly to our brain health and memory.
As children, we are learning new things all the time. Our brains are like sponges and we’re mastering new skills almost daily, whether it's learning how to brush our own teeth, learning to read and write, exploring new hobbies or learning social skills.
As children, we challenge our brains daily and with that, new neural networks are formed and strengthened as our brains continue grow.
The older we get, the more settled we get into a routine, doing pretty much the same thing everyday.
In doing this, we are neglecting a very important pillar of brain health by not engaging our brains or really exercising that memory muscle much at all.
That's what leads us to this week! And why we are here today!
In this challenge, we are going to look at ways to apply the Brain health pillar, “Use it or Lose It” to keep our brains and memory in tip top shape.
We are going to be exploring many ways to do this through brain games, daily habits, mnemonics, meditations, and more!
