Be Good To Your Brain. It's Brain Awareness Week


I'm a big fan of my Brain.

It's such a totally cool organ. Without it, I couldn't do anything, really.

No doubt that you probably feel the same way.

Brain health is vital to our mental and physical well-being. And as time marches on, exciting research and technologies will bring us even greater understanding of how our Brains work and offer insight into illness and disease.

So, now that you know it's Brain Awareness Week, go out and celebrate your Brain. I'm going to attempt some super difficult crosswords puzzles. Make sure I eat green leafy vegetables. Take my Brain for a longer walk than usual. And get a manicure. Hey, I daydream when I get one, so I am totally working out the ol' bean!

"If I only had brain",lol thats the first thing that came to MY brain when I saw this post Dr. Deb. The wizard of oz...Very good post and reminder of our brains and what they are capable of. I personaly need to do some of those excersizes to shape up my brain since I don't even know what I did five minutes ago. lol

Ms.L said...

Aren't our brains amazing!?
I think I'll celebrate this week too! I'm going to play more brain games and eat more walnuts and blueberries. I'm also going to
remember to take my vitamin D..

Jedi Master Daryl said...

Yeah, I guess the brain is pretty important.

Deb said...

Don't forget a healthy dose of salmon!!! :)

jumpinginpuddles said...

oooohhhhh we think we have overworked our brain this last few months so what about brain rest instead LOL, that would include brain dead tv shows, non brainer romance novels and plenty of passion pop and chips and dip LOL

Queen,
I don't recall what I did four minutes ago, so you're better than me!!

Ms. L,
Blueberries. Yum.

Jedi,
It's "The Force" for our bodies and minds.

Deb,
Yes, fish and the Omega's!

JIP,
Wow, very good workout. And I can see the imagery you mentioned in the previous post. I hope my art didn't trigger anything for you.

Deb S. said...

I'm a big fan of my brain, too. :-) I am totally intrigued by it. This is cool info!

Midwife with a Knife said...

Brain awareness week. I really like that somehow. :)

jumpinginpuddles said...

hey deb ,

thanks for checking but nah we dont get triggered as much now we have left our psycho previous therapist, shows how bad it was when your therapist encourages your triggering.

Health Psych said...

Sudokus all round? :)
Except my brain struggles with that.

Deborah Serani said...

HP,
I can NOT do Sudokus either!

Awake In Rochester said...

Gee, I don't think about my brain that much. LOL!

Maybe I'll celebrate my brain by having a few stiff drinks... Now I'm just being bad. ;)

jenji said...

Am I permitted to feed my brain a Snickers?


Yes, I think so.

I'm big fan of The Brain too.

Important thoughts in light of what happened to Natasha Richardson this very week. We've got to wear those dorky helmets when skiing and biking folks! I don't always do it - and now I'm going to. My family counts on me.

Deborah Serani said...

Awake,
They say that alcohol in moderation can be a very healthy thing.

Jenji,
Snickers is a great brain food, imo. And, in fact, is one of my emergency chocolate favorites.

Ellen,
Oh, this news of Natasha Richardson is so tragic. Yes, wearing protective gear is important as is making sure you get yourself checked out. No matter how "slight" the injury may seem. Ugh, so sad....

Grumpy Old Man said...

I'm all for brains.

What's it like to have one?

ellesu said...

dragonflyfilly said...

Wanda's Wings said...

Yes I am glad I have a brain. More brain games will be fun.

phd in yogurtry said...

I made a new recipe today -- mac 'n cheese (kids request). It definately stretches the ole brain to make something new.

Rose said...

Yes some good thinking games would be good for the mind....
