"Keep Your Brain Alive: 83 Neurobic Exercises" by Lawrence Katz



This is a quick-read but very interesting and practical. The gist of the book is to improve memory, you need to keep your brain active and use all of your senses. “Routines can be brain deadening.” Basically, learn to enjoy new experiences, change things around, interact with people and change up routines.

The most startling thing I learned from reading this book is: "Research has shown that watching television literally numbs the mind: The brain is less active during TV-viewing than during sleep!" (p. 117)

Gerard gave me this one for my birthday--thanks, honey!  You need to read it too!

(Karen's review--My rating: 5 of 5 stars)

  1. I am not surprised to hear that TV is brain-numbing. We don't have cable...and I don't miss it one little bit.

    Great Charity Choice!

    Merry Christmas!
