Of all the things I’ve lost, I miss my mind the most. Anonymous
Our muscles, our ears, and our eyes — we want them to last as long as we do. Why would we want to live longer if nothing works anymore? The good news, as we have seen in previous posts, is that making good choices and changes can make a difference in how well our bodies carry us through the golden years — even when we get a late start at it
In this newest series, we’ll be talking about the most important of our body parts — our brains. The good news is that there are things we can do to keep our brains healthy and active and sharp throughout our entire lives. Research on this made me particularly happy, since I had gathered that mental decline was inevitable. There are loads of scientific studies out there, though, that show that your brain doesn’t have to shrivel into a little nonfunctioning rock. There are things you can do to keep it alive and constantly growing and changing.
We’ll be looking at these in the coming days — so stay tuned!
Eating to live and living for Christ,
