Brain Fitness


Here’s a quick share.

There’s a new 12 part video series which is being shared free of charge over the coming days about prevention of brain disease, especially ways to prevent Alzheimers disease. However, I think it’s going to carry a lot more information that will be useful for ways to have a healthy brain in all ways:

Science of Prevention – Alzheimer’s Episode 1

You do need to move quickly on this as the first two episodes have already been released and will only be visible for a short time. The other ten episodes will be issued over coming days.

Like our physical health, we can’t or shouldn’t simply take our mental health for granted. There are actions we can take, things we can do to ensure that our brains will serve us well and support all our life goals throughout our lives.

Measuring the Quality of a Life

Once in a while you come across an article that leaves you saying, “I wish I’d written that”. Clayton Christensen is a Harvard professor whose books I have enjoyed and particularly I believe, “Disrupting Class” provides great insights in to where our thinking needs to be in the next q10 years for schools and education – especially secondary education.

So, when I came across this link to an article that Christensen wrote for the Harvard Business Review I was intrigued. However, the article was far more profound than I had expected. It outlines work he did with his students at Harvard where he shared his economic theories as applied to the living of one’s personal life.

Clearly, some of Christensen’s thinking has its origins in his strong Christian background. However, the lessons he brings out are profound and the examples very thought-provoking – for example, that Jeff Skilling was a ‘good guy’ at college!

I did find myself making strong comparisons with Steven Covey’s 7 habits of Highly Effective People (Habit 1 – Be Proactive, Habit 2 – Begin with the End in Mind, Habit 3 – Put First Things First and Habit 7 – Sharpen the Saw).
