…most powerful computer in our heads. It is very important to take good care of it. The first thing to do is drink lots of water. Our brains are mostly water so stay hydrated to be able to stay on your toes. Feed your brain healthy, unprocessed, locally grown or organic foods. Brain ‘favorites’ are nuts (top two: walnuts, almonds), dark chocolate, and lots of fresh veggies and fruit (top three: blueberries, apples, watermelon). Besides drinking lots of water and eating fresh, healthy foods (while staying clear of processed foods, sugar, caffeine, and alcohol), staying active is the most pro-active way to keep your brain in good shape. Exercise, go for long walks, be social, express your creativity, and try new things.

Our brains grow new neural pathways when we participate in active learning which gets us moving in new ways. Research shows taking dancing lessons stimulates new growth in the brain. So go out and have some fun, and thank your brain for keeping you inspired! Remember to come back to our brain quotes often. New quotes are being added regularly.

It is in the brain that the poppy is red, that the apple is odorous, that the skylark sings.
Oscar Wilde

It is our body’s senses that feed the brain environmental information with which to form an understanding of the world and from which to draw when creating new possibilities. And it is our movements that not only express knowledge and facilitate greater cognitive function, they actually grow the brain as they increase in complexity. Our entire brain structure is intimately connected to and grown by the movement mechanisms within our body.
Carla Hannaford - Smart Moves: Why Learning Is Not All In Your Head

Shaped a little like a loaf of French country bread, our brain is a crowded chemistry lab, bustling with nonstop neural conversations.
Diane Ackerman

The brain is like a muscle. When it is in use we feel very good. Understanding is joyous.
Carl Sagan

The human brain is the last, and greatest, scientific frontier. It is truly an internal cosmos that lies contained within our skulls. The more than 100 billion nerve cells and trillion supporting cells that make up your brain and mind constitute the most elaborate structure in the known universe.
Joel Davis

The limbic system has links with the neocortex allowing for emotional/cognitive processing. It also works in concert with the body to elicit the physical signs of emotions like the flush of embarrassment, and the smile of joy. Limbic system emotions also determine the release of neurotransmitters that either strengthen or weaken our immune system. The limbic system consists of 5 major structures in the brain: the thalamus, hypothalamus, basal ganglia, amygdala and hippocampus.
Carla Hannaford - Smart Moves: Why Learning Is Not All In Your Head

There are billions of neurons in our brains, but what are neurons? Just cells. The brain has no knowledge until connections are made between neurons. All that we know, all that we are, comes from the way our neurons are connected.
Tim Berners-Lee

We are an intelligent species and the use of our intelligence quite properly gives us pleasure. In this respect the brain is like a muscle. When we think well, we feel good. Understanding is a kind of ecstasy.
Carl Sagan

Your brain never stops developing and changing. It’s been doing it from the time you were an embryo, and will keep doing it all your life. And this ability, perhaps, represents its greatest strength.
James Trefil

The brain is the last and grandest biological frontier; the most complex thing we have yet discovered in our universe. It contains hundreds of billions of cells interlinked through trillions of connections. The brain boggles the mind.
James D. Watson

The brain is wider than the sky.
Emily Dickinson

The great news is that our brains are built for creative problem solving, and it is easy to both uncover and enhance our natural inventiveness.
Tina Seelig

Your brain controls how you feel. It's the biggest playground in the world. What we think and feel creates secretions from the brain which in turn cause biochemical changes throughout the body. When we laugh and play, our body releases endorphins, the body's natural opiates.
Ellie Katz

A full belly makes a dull brain.
Benjamin Franklin

Humor is by far the most significant activity of the human brain.
Edward de Bono

The brain is a wonderful organ; it starts the moment you get up in the morning and does not stop until you get to the office.
Robert Frost

The brain is looking for tribal behavior: you’re like my tribe or you’re different from my tribe. You’re a friend or an enemy. It’s you or us. Looking for the common goal, or a positive outcome, can also help you feel open minded and calm – an ideal state for finding creative solutions.
George Kohlrieser
