Opportunities! Use them to Improve your Life, Improve your Mind. #atoz

This entry is part 16 in the series Improve Your Life, Improve Your Mind

opportunitiesWe’ve reached O in the A – Z Blogging Challenge.

Today we’re looking at O for Opportunities. There are so many ways we can improve our lives and our brains by looking for new opportunities!

A few days ago, someone commented to me about a man in his early 60s who has developed a tremor, “We don’t worry about that symptom! We know it’s just age.”

That’s such a short-sighted attitude, folk. If it was “just age” then every person in their sixties would have a tremor! Yet, I know many ninety year olds who have no shakes whatsoever.

Yes, it could be as a result of nerve degeneration as the person grows older, but it could also be caused by so many other things: a hormone deficiency; a nutritional imbalance; an over-abundance of stimulation of a part of the brain, such as too many violent video games; a lack of exercise; or many of the other things we’ve looked at over the past two weeks.

The moral of this story is never to just accept the first reason that comes to mind, unless it’s obviously correct (such as sunburn after a day in the sun!) Don’t attribute any symptoms to “just age!” Be certain you take every opportunity to find out the cause of any unpleasant symptom. And look at every opportunity to improve your life, improve your mind. Others have done it. So can you! 

Meet Rose!

Rose has a special message for us all, no matter our age. She urges us never to miss out on opportunities!

Brains! Are we stuck with what we have?

This entry is part 3 in the series Improve Your Life, Improve Your Mind

Moving on to the next post in the theme:

Improve your Life, Improve your Mind.

B is for Brains which run the world!

That’s according to Daniel Amen, an American celebrity doctor who practices as a psychiatrist and brain disorder specialist. I only discovered him (mainly on Youtube) recently and he’s fascinating to listen to!

He points out that brains run the stock market, the local markets, huge corporations, governments, schools, churches, families . . . and so it goes on.

Yet when did you last think about caring for your brain? read more

Age – Do our brains always deteriorate as we get older?

This entry is part 2 in the series Improve Your Life, Improve Your Mind

We’re at the beginning of the A to Z Blogging Challenge.

As described in my previous post, the theme I’m going with this year is, “Improve your Life ~ Improve your Mind.” You can read more at my Theme Reveal.

We commence the month by looking at

A for Aging – and if our brains automatically deteriorate with age.

According to studies, our brains become less and less active as we age. (Most of us in our second half of life don’t need studies! We know our brains are becoming less active on a regular basis.

“Brain aging is much more about our habits than our age”

according to Dr Daniel Amen, a psychiatrist and world expert in the area of brain development and damage. Over the next month, we’re going to look at different ways we can improve our lives as well as improve our minds. Obviously, if our minds are sharp, our bodies are likely to improve as well.  read more
