The stock market provided its share of excitement in the first quarter of 2018, but Garry Weber, the CEO of Weber Financial Inc., has seen it all before.

Neuroscientist Probes Myths About the Teenage Brain (Education Week):

“We often think early childhood is this dramatic window of learning and development in the brain, and you’re highlighting adolescence as a different kind of window. Can you talk a little bit about that?
I was told when I was an undergraduate that the human brain pretty much stopped developing after mid-childhood. From [magnetic resonance imaging] of living brains, we’ve discovered tha…

Why Believing in Your Brain Matters: 3 Ways to Boost Cognitive Confidence

Source: http://totalbrainhealth.com/why-believing-in-your-brain-matters-3-ways-to-boost-cognitive-confidence/

One of my favorite quotes comes from Henry Ford: “Whether you think you can, whether you think you can’t, you are right.”

How true is that? And if you are looking to empower others (and yourself) for better cognitive wellness and healthy living, boosting confidence in our ability to really make a difference in our brain fitness and overall well-being may just be one of the first places you should start.

When it comes to brain health, we know empowering people with the self-assurance to take better care of their brains can make the difference in their cognitive wellness. Much of what is prescribed by the science requires folks to make brain healthy choices on their own– such as regular aerobic activity, taking part in intellectually stimulating activities, being social, etc. One of the best things we can provide to those we serve is the knowledge of what to do and the confidence to do so.

And the research suggests that we can in fact do …

Exercise ‘doesn’t slow’ progression of dementia (NHS Choices):
