Oprah on the Brain

The recent issue of Oprah Magazine (Jan 2005) has an interesting series on learning and health. Its surprising what you will find in Oprah which is, I guess, one of the reasons for her success – she is always open to new ideas and approaches to life.

Learning is one of the best ways to challenge the mind and to exercise the brain. And brain health is what keeps us alert. Being alert on the job means being able to address unusual situations when they arise. The number of accidents caused by incorrect responses to unusual situations is huge. So, if you are at the news stand, check out page 143 in the January issue and take up watercolor painting, snowshoeing, or eagle watching, or…you get the point.
