New Book Offers Holistic Plan for Total Brain Health
New York (RushPRnews)12/19/08- In “A Better Brain at Any Age” (Conari Press, January 2008), Sondra Kornblatt, along with the experts she has interviewed, will help readers put their heads on straight through healthy activities for the body (exercise, healthy food consumption, and relaxation) and through specific activities to boost brain power like movement, eye rolls, supplements, and making environmental changes.
“Just reading about brain research is enough to make your neurons fire. Researchers have also learned that stimulation keeps your brain engaged and growing. Stimulation isn’t a loud disco arcade of flashing lights. It means doing something different to deepen and create new brain pathways. Otherwise known as making changes. You can make huge changes (go back for your degree in speech pathology) or smaller ones (notice your feet in your shoes). Change what you eat, how you move, your environment, memory, learning, creativity, and emotions. They all stretch the brain and keep it active. You’ll find hundreds of boosters to transform the brain in the chapters of this bookâ€¦” ~Sondra Kornblatt from the Introduction
Many minds struggle with information overload from busy family lives, insomnia, crowded commutes and caffeinated breakfasts, demands at workâ€¦in short, challenging modern lives. The symptoms of brain-overload run from fuzzy thinking to forgotten words, from depression and anxiety to migraine headaches.
Each of the seven chapters – Body-Mind Connection; Environmental Support; Food and Supplements; Intelligence and Learning; Memory, Learning Shortcuts, and Brain-stretchers; Emotions and Decisions; and Meditation and Bigger Perspectives – details how that topic impacts the brain, as well as tips and highlights for readers to either delve into the book or peruse it for quick boosts.
Kornblatt teaches readers how to reduce brain stress and optimize mental agility, and shares information on how the brain interacts with the body, what habits impact the brain – positively and negatively – and how to maximize learning. She provides tips to strengthen memory, cognition, and creativity so readers can function better in their active lives.
A Better Brain at Any Age offers a complete plan for total brain health in an engaging and accessible way.
