When we tap into all that our brains do for us, we can make our brains work better. The keys to activating our brains are:
Aerobic Exercise • Mindfulness and Meditation • Rich and Fulfilling Relationships and Experiences
Because our brains respond to what we do in our lives and with our bodies, when we make positive changes we can:
Think Sharper • Increase Memory Capacity • Work with Greater Focus • Improve Our Moods
Harness the Power of Your Brain . . . for a Better Life
At forty, world-renowned, prizewinning neuroscientist Dr. Wendy Suzuki set out on a journey to change her life. The first step was creating an exercise regime that would make her body more fit. In the process, Wendy found herself focusing better, working smarter, and getting more accomplished in a shorter amount of time. As her body transformed, Wendy set out to build a more vibrant social life, spark her creativity, and engage in mindful activities—using her expertise in neuroscience to pinpoint exactly how these actions made her feel and made her brain work better. In Healthy Brain, Happy Life, Wendy tells her story and offers practical and fascinating ways to improve memory, engage the brain more deeply, and create a way of living that is good for the body and the mind.
