The evolution of brain health is moving at break-neck speed right now.  However, there was a time when it wasn’t even recognized as being anything of value.  Wellness programs focus on physical health.   

 

At the same time, the ravages of dementia were gaining attention.  There was no specific plan of care for regaining cognitive function during the 1990s.  Memory care units were referred to as ‘lock-down’ units.  As the number of cases of dementia increased, more lock-down units were opened but appropriate care was scarce.  I saw this firsthand, and it shook me to the core. 

 

In the early 2000s, researchers were releasing results of studies identifying neurogenesis and neuroplasticity.  The brain could recover lost volume and create new synaptic connections.  We could change our brains!  This is where the beginnings of The Boomer Brain were founded.  There was not much attention given to brain health at that time and this was the time when Boomers were going through their forties and fifties — the perfect time to slow brain aging.  Now that brain health has been embraced to prevent Alzheimer’s, there have been international efforts to educate and encourage the brain-healthy lifestyle.  However, Boomers are now in their sixties, and seventies, and are facing increasing risks of developing dementia.

 

This book focuses on Boomers as we make our way through our later years.  The aging process is tough, and there are so many changes that we don’t feel we have any control over.  There is no secret sauce, or magic pill that can turn back the time to your younger brain.  This book captures the why and the how of aging changes and turns them into your starting point for making critical updates to your brain.  Gaining an understanding of how your lifestyle history impacts your Alzheimer’s risks is an important part of planning for your ageless brain.  Having the knowledge, strategies, and tools is necessary to change your brain and life. Knowing how to use them and committing to the change process are your keys to successful aging.  Remember, your brain doesn’t know how old you are!  It ages by the lifestyle that you lead.  It is never too late to change your brain!

     What's Happening?

 July 2024

The 4th of July!! Parades, picnics, parties, and fireworks define the day.  It is a day to celebrate our Independence.  This year, however, I am worried about the country's state.  This is not political, and I would never use My Boomer Brain as a platform for my views. There is so much at stake this election and I believe people look at age rather than substance with our candidates. Celebrating the ‘Land of the Free’ and the ‘Home of the Brave’ seems hollow if our future ignores the sacrifices of all Americans who fought for our freedom. 

If you live in the United States and will be voting in November, critically evaluate the candidates and decide who has the best interests of the American people in their plans for the country. We owe that to everyone in the past who fought and died for our future.

July 24th is International Self-Care Day.  I love that!  Everything I write about and talk about comes down to self-care.  Living a brain-healthy lifestyle is the best form of self-care you can give yourself.  The date 7/24 was selected because self-care should be 7 Days a Week/ 24 Hours per day!  Perfect!

The Boomer Brain had a great start.  It was rated the #1 New Release in Aging Medical Conditions and Diseases.  It is starting to gain some attention.  The book is all about the aging brain and what we can do to create an ageless brain.  All the talk about chronological age and brain age is ridiculous.  Your brain doesn’t know how old you are!  It ages by the lifestyle that you lead.  Don’t judge a brain by its cover.

In my excitement to launch the book and my inexperience in launching a book, I messed up the days of the .99 promotion for the Kindle version of The Boomer Brain.  From Jully 11 – July 15, the eBook will be available for .99. I hope you take advantage of this offer.  This book answers a lot of questions about our aging brains.

As always, thank you for being a part of My Boomer Brain.
