Our brain is a constant work in progress — from the day we’re born until the day we die.
Everything we do, think, feel and believe either enhances or erodes our brain on a daily basis.
If we light a cigarette*, we damage our brain.
If we learn a new skill, we boost our brain.
If we don’t get enough sleep, we damage our brain.
If we go for a walk, we boost our brain.
If we hate our job, we’re damaging our brain.
If we help our neighbour, we’re boosting our brain.
*Even passive smoking harms our brain.
The health of our brain is also linked to the health of our body.
If we have high blood pressure, it’s harming our brain.
If we eat berries and broccoli, we’re protecting our brain.
If we have type 2 diabetes, it’s harming our brain.
If we avoid soft drinks, we’re protecting our brain.
If our waist circumference is more than half our height, it’s harming our brain.
If we eat sardines and olive oil, we’re protecting our brain.
And of course, our brain and behaviour are influenced by our environment.
If we live near a coal-fired power plant, it’s damaging our brain.
If we spend time in nature, we’re boosting our brain.
When we smell something offensive, we become more pessimistic and judgemental.
When we hold a warm drink, we’re more likely to feel warmly about others.
If we sit on a hard chair, we’re less likely to yield to someone’s demands.
If we sit on a soft sofa, we’re more likely to grant someone’s request.
