Dr. Daniel Amen says “Stop Being Stupid”

I recently received a link from Brendan Bouchard to a wonderful video featuring Dr. Daniel Amen, the author of Use Your Brain to Change Your Age: Secrets to Look, Feel, and Think Younger Every Day (Available on Amazon.com).

The overall video is about an hour and a half long, which would usually turn me off since I have so much to do and little time to get things done, but I’m glad I took the time to watch it.  I would have embedded the video below, but was not able to so here is a link to it…  http://www.highperformanceacademy.com/amen

Did you watch the video?
If you still don’t have time to watch the video, here is the “Reader’s Digest” version based on a few of the slides that Dr. Amen presented …

Dr. Amen's Bad Things to Avoid for your Brain Health

I found it facinating to see the “things to avoid if you want to maintain a healthy brain”. Some of them are obvious but some of them you might not have thought about. Dr. Amen’s experience having studied thousands of brain scans lends loads of credibility to his suggestions.

I especially liked his story about being a friend, not an accomplice.  Another way of putting it would be to ask whether or not you are “enabling” someone else’s bad behaviour?  Do you eat more salads around your friends who are overweight or do you “splurge” when you are around them?
Your example can make a major difference in their life!  Think about it !
