If there is one recurring question, one that I continue to encounter on this quest to promote brain healthy lifestyles, it is this: How do we overcome the challenges of the aging brain? 

My answer? Embrace it.

Kalynn Amadio, host of The Boomer's Ultimate Guide Podcast, asked me how it is different speakng with Baby Boomers and that recurring question frames my answer. 

We, the Baby Boomer generation, have been taught that we are on this path, from birth to death and that along the way we lose brain cells and with them, hope of functioning well. 

That, my friends, is simply not true. We need to push those out dated notions out of our lives.  

We can guide our experience and our paths to live a better, richer, fuller cognitive life -- one where we solve big problems, tackle tasks (large and small), and function well in our worlds.

Listen in as Kalynn and I talk about the gifts and the power of our aging brains and soooo much more!

On stop #3 I had the honor of speaking with Doug Foresta on Empowerment Radio on his show Creating Change. 

LISTEN IN HERE!

Doug speaks about creativity and how to harness and maximize its power to live a better life. Yes, a conversation that fits my point of view perfectly.

We talked about how to replace negative thoughts with creative thoughts and how to shift your perspective, ever so slightly, so that you may live a life more fueled by the creativity.

How do you do that? Wake up your brain by activating your senses! 

Did you know that using the sense of smell is one of the most powerful and under-utilized tools to spark creativity? 

Think about this: Particular scents/odors/smells trigger not just memories but have that ability to transport you across space and time. How often does a memory triggered by something you smell, carry emotion and color and depth? 

That bond between memory and the sense of smell is a gateway to spark creating new rich, deep, emotion filled memories.
