The brain is a complex system of operation
functioning to coordinate our human capacity.
Physical and mental workouts can boost proteins and chemicals in the brain to optimize and grow the plastic neural connections that transmit messages of comprehension and application.
Amusement can be a vast tool for expanding capacity that activates and stimulates many brain areas for an overall improvement in mental and physical health. Laughter and play are becoming more recognized for their expansive benefits to overall health, and our ability to optimize potential through imagination and innovation.
Beyond the desire to rapid-fire our brain function for instant effect is the reality of healthy practices that are natural to our body and native to our soul purpose.
Just by doing something different each day your brain gains new information.

The Power of Your Plasticity
Neuroplasticity refers to the malleability of your brain. Learning about plasticity is plasticity in action. Our brains are not fixed and adapt to each experience we encounter to learn new memories. This means that it is neither good nor bad, as all experiences engaged change our brain.
Focusing on the learning and memory experiences that arouse our curiosity and spark our imagination or the events that deepen our concentration and expand our mindfulness are the plastic elements that build the connections in our miles of neural wiring that positively affect us
Even with brain injury, impairment or disease, the brain is still able to build new synapses of strength. Laughter and play are merry medicine for a positive progress without side effects.
