In 2012-2013 Australians spent around one billion dollars on cosmetic and anti-ageing treatments.
In addition we spent around $800 million dollars on quick fix weight loss solutions.
That's an awful lot of money to enhance our external appearance.
But how much time and effort did you put into ensuring that your inside is healthy and functional?
Wouldn't it make sense to ensure that your brain (and body) is in optimal shape to serve you better?
People who enjoy a higher level of brain fitness, not only think better and remember more, they enjoy that feeling of calmness and well being that automatically transfers into making you look better on the outside as well.
Glowing with health and vitality doesn't come from an expensive pot of face-cream. It comes from doing those things we all know are important, yet so often we either overlook or neglect to see through.
Brain fitness is all about lifestyle choice:
- Your choice of foods to nourish your brain and assist in cognition, memory and mood.
- Your choice in attitude and how you choose to manage your stress levels.
- Your choice in mentally challenging your brain, and stretching those mental muscles.
- Your choice of exercise to maintain your brain and enhance your natural brain plasticity.
So which is more important to you?
Looking good on the outside or making sure your masterful brain is in tip-top condition to look after you better, for longer?
I'd love to hear your thoughts.
