Spring Break is winding down and we are all starting to prepare for the upcoming week. I had a relaxing vacation at the beach, and I’m ready to be beach bound again! But for now, it’s back to life and reality.

Time to get back into the business of the brain and forming new pathways while building a cognitive reserve  through neuroplasticity or brain plasticity. Let’s build a buff brain! Challenge yourself with something new or just do something differently or change the order of things in your daily, morning or evening rituals. Yes, it can actually be that simple-anything that causes or forces us to think differently is beneficial! It doesn’t matter if you’re a senior, a baby boomer, a gen X or Y, approaching 50, 40, or even 30. We all need to embrace the concept of lifelong learning.  It’s as simple as ABC-Always Brain Challenging-that’s what we believe at BrainMasters!

Equally important to exercising the brain is the caring for the brain. This includes physical exercise and eating brain foods. By engaging in physical exercise and consuming healthy foods we become active participants in the anti-aging, longevity, and anti-Alzheimer’s Disease campaign.  I know everyone is busy-we all are. Surely, we all can allocate 30 minutes each day to exercise whether it’s a walk, yoga, biking, or playing Wii Fit-just get moving! If you have a dog, then walk it; after all pets need exercise too!

Let’s not forget about that healthy diet! Fresh fruits and vegetables, nuts and whole grains, lean meats and fish loaded with omega 3’s! Limit or eliminate those white things such as white sugar and white flour. Newly released findings by Dr. Suzanne DeLaMonte
Neuropathologist, Rhode Island Hospital strongly suggest that Alzheimer’s Disease is diabetes of the brain! She suggests to reduce the risk for developing this disease it’s essential to decrease your exposure to certain toxins. These toxins include: sodium nitrite, processed foods, white sugars. Try and eat organically grown foods!  She stressed the importance of  healthy eating,  physical exercise, and  brain  stimulation/exercise to help ward off Alzheimer’s Disease or diabetes of the brain! Add some fresh berries, cinnamon and walnuts to greek yogurt-now that’s a delicious snack or meal!  Drink plenty of water and try some green tea. Both have proven health benefits!

Now that you are armed with this powerful new knowledge, it’s time to exercise that brain and form new pathways! Here are some spring themed anagrams. Form as many new words as possible, and let us know how you do!
