Make Your Brain Smarter, Younger and more Flexible

 We all know that exercising our bodies is a good thing so why do we stop at the neck? That's the question Sandra Bond Chapman asked herself when she founded the Center for BrainHealth at the University of Texas in Dallas. So she investigated and came up with the latest research done on the brain and then worked out a plan to keep the brain sharp.

"One lesson to embrace now and throughout your life is: the more you learn, the more you will be humbled by how little you know and have yet to learn. Think about thinking - not knowing." This statement flies in the face of the adage preached by parents and teachers for generations - "the more you know the better...." It is intriguing to consider intellectual curiosity more important than stored knowledge. What an eye opener.

And multitasking? Where does it rank? Not so high according to the author. Well, read all about it in her book, Make Your Brain Smarter. She gives tips for good brain health and exercise from cradle to grave.

You can find the book in the new book area in the lobby immediately to the left as you enter.
