So many people are concerned with memory loss. I am pleased to say I found a book that helps explain how the brain works, and it has reduced any concerns I have about memory loss. I am so excited to share this book with you!
Memory loss is often quickly associated with Alzheimer’s and dementia. This is not an accurate association in many cases, and this book explains why. Super Brain is by Rudolph E. Tanzi, one of the world’s foremost experts on Alzheimer’s, and Deepak Chopra. The two authors merge their unique expertise to offer a new understanding of the brain, or the “three pound universe” as they name it, and the untapped potential it houses.
Here are just a few significant highlights from the book:
If you cannot find your car keys, but then subsequently find them, this is not Alzheimer’s. If you lose your keys, subsequently find them, but don’t know what they are, this is Alzheimer’s.
Before you blame your brain for not remembering something, examine the stress you have. Being busy, being tired from lack of sleep, being overtaxed from multi-tasking all add to our stress levels.
Life is full of unexpected challenges. Three strengths to managing life’s challenges are 1) letting go, 2) being flexible, and 3) hanging loose. Three common obstacles to meeting the challenges are 1) habits, 2) conditioning, and 3) stuckness.
Brain wellness begins and ends with awareness. We must remember that energy flows where awareness goes. When energy stops flowing, stuckness occurs. Stuckness is an illusion, but it feels very real.
Use your brain, and don’t let your brain use you. You can make your own reality by being aware of your emotions and where they initiate.
Our brains are our sources of power. Learn to better understand how your brain works in order to make it work for you. The possibilities presented in this book are excited and empowering. Pick up this book to learn more insights from the authors, and begin applying them to open up the power of your own Super Brain!
