Brain Push-ups


Being between blogs, sheer boredom had me staring at the name on my body lotion container, Glysomed. While routinely rubbing the contents into my hands and arms, I began breaking the name down into as many different words as I could think of. I called this idle activity brain push-ups. It sounds somewhat like an activity don’t you think?

Bottom line is this one word, Glysomed, produced fifty 55 other words.

That was my brain push-up for the day…want to give it a try? Please let me know when you come up with more than fifty-five words, and accept my congratulations on being the best at brain push-ups. Happy Tuesday.

Something About Brain Cells


Charles L. Allen wrote the following in his book, “All Things Are Possible Through Prayer”:

“We use different parts of the brain for different purposes. We use the upper brain cells when we worry and brood and feel fear. The lower brain cells control the muscular activities of the body so that when we engage in physical activity, it relieves the upper brain cells and allows them to function normally.”

The next time you are in the clutches of worry, fear, or anxiety try jogging on the spot, scrubbing a floor, or dancing a jig and notice how those nagging emotions give way to the new activity.

It works for me.
