Brain Fitness for Women
Did you know that women have 70,000 thoughts per day and one person’s brain generates more electrical impulses each day than all the telephones in the world combined?
In Brain Fitness for Women, health writer Sondra Kornblatt offers an entertaining look at how women’s brains work: the physiology of women’s brains, new research in neuroscience, the differences between women’s and men’s brains, and how women’s brains age.
She offers fun facts (yep, that chocolate you’re craving does boost cognitive function), tips (your brain wants a glass of water in the morning), and advice (forget multitasking, the brain can only process one thing at a time). She examines how hormones, the environment, exercise, stress, food, aging, and even friendship affect the brain, and offers strategies for keeping your brain on its metaphorical tiptoes at any age.
A Better Brain at Any Age
With humor and simplicity, Sondra Kornblatt guides readers how to reduce brain stress and optimize mental agility.
You don’t have to be an Einstein to understand her explanation of how the brain interacts with the body. And also how habits impact the brain – positively and negatively – to maximize learning. She provides powerful tips to strengthen memory, cognition, and creativity so readers can function better in their active lives.
For Your Night Nest
White noise sound screen
Marpac Sound Screen & SleepMate 980 is my favorite white noise maker. It provides a consistent, smooth sound of rushing air, subtly adjustable from a soft hum to a louder whirr. And it’s durable. It’s my go-to when there’s noise – or I’m worried there might be.
Bucky 40 Blinks Sleep Mask is Light, comfortable, roomy for your eyelids, and dark. And the darker it is, the more your natural production of melatonin increases.
