When it comes to our brains, how much we move and what we eat and drink has a powerful impact on them and strongly affects our mental functioning. When it comes to movement, a recent article on US News’s website How to Prevent Athletic Injury by Training Your Brain talked about how we can use our brains to prevent injury while working out. To discuss this and more, we welcome back neuroscientist Dr. Kristen Willeumier to delve into how we can all be more mindful when it comes to partaking in athletic activities.
Dr. Willeumier has provided us with a list of five bio hacks that people might want to consider when it comes to their athletic endeavors.
As far as what we eat and drink, Dr. Willeumier goes into detail about how alcohol has a negative impact on the brain.
Featured columnist Jay Bildstein joins us for this important segment on brain health.
