Cognitive decline is not inevitable

Vital parts of the brain tend to atrophy as we age. But brain scans of some 70-year-olds looks similar to those of 20 to 30-year-olds.

5 Ways to Keep Your Brain Sharp As You Age


Don't tell people directly they need help

In discussing the fear of sharing past traumas or mental health difficulties with others, Prince Harry pointed out that the phrase "you need help" is damaging. It implies that you don't know how to deal with issues and should seek help as you are incapable of personal care.

If you tell somebody to their face that they need help, it may drive them to deny that they need help.

  • One example of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is the phobia related to germs and leads to a person disinfecting and cleaning everything obsessively.
  • It is already problematic for many and is now amplified due to the ongoing pandemic.
  • A person who is fanatic about sanitizing is having OCD if it is accompanied by constant anxiety and distress.

Our Brains are Upgradable

Our minds are not static, but dynamic. The Brain has the capability to modify itself, change its structure, and to alter its biochemistry, at any age.

We can renew, rewire, heal and adapt our brains.

The noise in our brains

With record-high instances of depression, anxiety, and substance abuse in the United States, and likely elsewhere, we still think antidepressants can be used to relieve some of the damage. But this may not be true. The use of antidepressants has inadvertently left many less able to feel empathy toward others, laugh, cry, dream, and enjoy life when we need it most.

A theory of brain function involving serotonin may point a way forward for effective treatment.

Brunch - a culinary tradition
  • Some food historians think that the meal has its roots in England's hunt breakfasts - a multi-course meal with goodies such as chicken livers, eggs, meats, bacon, fresh fruit, and sweets.
  • Others think that Sunday brunch comes from the practice of Catholics fasting before mass and then sitting down for a big midday meal.
  • Then some trace the origins of classic brunch dishes to New York's dining spots.

Right-Handed Vs Left Handed

Human hand preference is predictably a biological and genetic (hereditary) phenomenon, but we see that 85 percent of people are right-handed.

Researchers have identified the specific gene (D Gene) that occurs more commonly among the population which responsible for promoting right-hand preference. The C gene, which is less likely to occur within our gene pool, creates a coin-toss chance of an individual being left or right-handed.

What causes some people to be left-handed, and why are fewer people left-handed than right-handed?


A 1999 study that stated that consuming eggs can lead to cardiovascular disease(CVD) has now been updated. An extensive new study clearly shows no link between egg consumption and CVD risk.

A good workout

Suffering is not always part of exercise. Sweating, breathing hard, and being exhausted afterward are not measures of effectiveness or progress.

Hard workouts should be mixed with easy ones to create a whole program. Some days you will do hard workouts, but most of the time, an exercising program barely feels like hard work.

Exercise Shouldn't Feel Horrible
