Thank your brain

Your beautiful brain has been working hard. Give back by moving your body to boost your hippocampus or listening to music to nurture your neurotransmitters. Pick up a new book to strengthen you left temporal cortex. You can even try mentoring to release serotonin and dopamine  – wow!  Find time to do important fun stuff over the break.
