A topic near & dear to my heart...er, brain! Three big changes.

1. Night walks - the neighborhood where I live is really safe and so I started walking after dark. This seems to increase sensory input as the brain tries harder to analyze the environment. I also seem to sleep better those nights.

2. Re-learning to juggle. It's not like riding a bike, muscle-memory wise! After 30 years I had to start over from scratch. There's a lot of interesting research showing improvements to the brain and muscles due to juggling. Eye-hand coordination is definitely returning to my young adult days.

3. Herbal supplements - a daily dose of lion's mane mushroom, sage, and ginkgo leaf!
