Want to improve your brainpower? Thanks to the scientific study of the Center for BrainHealth’s founder and chief director, Dr. Sandra Bond Chapman, that’s a Know Brainer. Dr. Chapman, in her career quest to maximize cognitive potential across the entire lifespan, revolutionizes the way we think about and care for our brains in a new book that publishes January 1.
Make Your Brain Smarter – Increase Your Brain’s Creativity, Energy, and Focus, written by Dr. Chapman, along with the Center’s public relations director Shelly Kirkland, condenses 30 years of research into a customizable brain health fitness guide designed to improve creative and critical thinking, strengthen healthy brain development, and incite innovation throughout life.
After taking you through a quick tour of your brain’s frontal lobe and introducing you to your cognitive CEO, the prefrontal cortex, Make Your Brain Smarter brings to light many reassuring actualities: aging does not equal brain slippage—cognitive health declines because we let it; near-perfect memory is NOT the definition of a robust brain; IQ is an outdated and misleading index of brain potential; and every individual can rewire their brain by how it is used everyday.
This energizing and empowering book includes nine strategies to keep your brain fit at any age; unique tests and exercises to boost your problem solving and higher-reasoning capacity; and secrets to becoming a higher brain performer. “I wholeheartedly live by Sandi Chapman’s guide to making our brain smarter,” said Melissa Reiff, president of The Container Store. “The topic of brain health is critical to our future as we all want to continue to live strong, vibrant, and impactful lives for as long as we possibly can.”
Other book gems include memorable Know Brainer expressions at the end of each chapter – tips we should all know and adopt to keep our brains healthy. “These strategies revolutionized my life and could change the lives of millions. In the knowledge era, cognitive performance has never been more needed, but the distractions are great and growing. This book comes at the perfect time,” said Donovan Campbell, New York Times best selling author of Joker One and the upcoming book The Leader’s Code.
Make Your Brain Smarter is your guidebook to the worldwide Brain Health Movement. You are never too young or too old to commit to adopt beneficial brain health habits that challenge and enhance your brain’s capacity to think and act smarter.
“Thanks to the pioneering brain research being done by Dr. Sandi Chapman, we can have healthy an productive minds for far longer than we might have imagined,” said T. Boone Pickens, legendary entrepreneur, innovator, energy executive, and author of The First Billion is the Hardest: Reflections on a Life of Comebacks and America’s Energy Future.
