How the Brain Works - It's Not What You Think.

We know that our brain is what makes us tick. It stores our memories, controls our bodily functions, creates ideas that change the world and lets us fly on the wings on imagination whenever we want. This is why it’s imperative that we keep our brain in good health!

These 14 tips and trivia bits will help you understand your brain better and keep it in good condition.

1. Living in a violent home affects a child in the same way combat affects a soldier.
2. Forgetting things (to an extent) is a sign of a healthy brain. Deleting unneeded information allows the brain to retain elasticity!

3. If you're stuck in a constant state of stress, your brain ages and becomes weaker prematurely...
4. According to current research, dieting can cause the brain to eat itself...
5. If your brain doesn't get oxygen for 5-10 minutes, it will suffer permanent damage.
6. Scientific research proved that when a person gets even a modicum of power, it will affect their brain's works and will reduce their ability to have empathy.
7. Brain freeze is a real thing, its scientific name is: "Sphenopalatine ganglioneuralgia" Brain freeze, also known as an ice-cream headache, cold-stimulus headache,
8. Both sides of the brain work in tandem. The concept of "left/right brain" is a myth.
9. Want to relax? When you smell chocolate, your brain releases theta waves which relaxes you.
10. Did you know that your tongue is not the only part of your body with taste buds? Your brain has them as-well (and so does your stomach, intestines, pancreas, anus, testicles and lungs).
11. Drinking alcohol doesn't erase your memories - instead, it prevents your brain from creating new ones.
12. When you're rejected, your brain interprets it in the same way it does physical pain...
13. Your brain doesn't stop developing until you are in your late 40's, so it's important to keep it active.
14. The effects of sleep deprivation on the brain slows your reactions and causes you to suffer from impaired judgment.

So keep that brain of yours working, get enough sleep and sniff some chocolate and you'll be happier and healthier... more
