How Do You Apply Brain Science to Your Life?
The brain is the organ of learning, loving, and behaving for every member of a family, school, church or business. When the brains in a family or organization work right, the family or organization tends to be positive and effective. When the brain of one or more family or organization members is troubled, the family or organization experiences increased stress and strain.
Your brain is the most complex, mind-blowing organ in the universe. And here’s why:
• It is only about 3 pounds, or about 2 percent of your body’s weight.
• It uses 20 to 30% of the calories you consume, 20% of the oxygen you breathe and 25% of the blood flow in your body.
• The brain is 85% water!
• It is estimated that the brain has 100 billion nerve cells and more connections in it than there are stars in the universe, which is about the number of stars in the Milky Way Galaxy.
Knowing how to care for your brain and the brains in your family or organization is the first and most important step to success, in any thing you do. When the brain works right, you (or your family and organization) work right!
As young adults’ brains don’t stop evolving until their mid-twenties, we designed a course destined for strengthening a young mind.
