My Mom had a motto that has inspired me and stuck with me throughout the years: "You can do or be anything you want to, as long as you set your mind to it". That message has sustained me through rough and tumble times and helped to keep me focused on my goals. I'd like to share with you in this newsletter helpful ideas, insights and information that will inspire you to do your best, be your "anything" that is uniquely you, and help you "set your mind" to it! You are truly wonderful and unique, you are Wonder Brains!
Playful Learning and Brain Power is what WonderBrains.com is all about! We strive to provide you with information, resources, and inspiration that will lead you to a strong, healthy and fun-loving Brain!

Did you know your brain can be sick and heal? Just like any other part of your body, your brain can get out of shape and ill. To really achieve all you can and become the person you were born to be you need to have a healthy brain! Here are some important steps to maintain maximum brain health:
Sleep: Get the right amount of sleep for you, each and every night. For adults that usually varies between 7-8 hours a day. Go to sleep and get up at the about the same time every day.
Exercise: Think! Play! Create! is the Wonder Brains motto, and it says it all. Use your brain to think through problems, play games and puzzles, and make things. Exercise your body and your heart. Your brain needs plenty of oxygen and a healthy heart provides it.
Nourish: Your brain needs fuel to work! So make sure you eat a healthy breakfast, a diet with ample protein rich foods (cold water fish are especially beneficial due to the omega-3 oils) and calcium. Protien activates the brain and calcium helps cleanse it.
Protect: You have only one brain, so take good care of it! Stay away from caffeine as it throws off your brain's internal clock. Don't do drugs or drink alcohol. The bottom line: they kill brain cells and can destroy your memory. Always wear a helmet when biking, skateboarding or doing other activities that warrant it.
