I no I hadn't given serious thought about feeding, exercising and caring for my brain in the same way I do my heart and other aspects of my physical self. I'm grateful to Sondra for writing this book -- expressing gratitude from my heart, and my head.
Really...check it out. You won't not think about your brain anymore.
