Example text

By letting go of all that pressure and worry, and instead making deliberate, brain-friendly choices, you’re much more likely to do more and have more. By the time you finish this book, I believe you’ll take away a new appreciation—and maybe even adoration—of your brain. You’ll see it as the priceless instrument that it is. I would like this book to become a reference for you that you dog-ear (or highlight on your e-reader) and in which you skip around if you like. In the first parts of the book, you’ll develop an understanding of basic neurochemistry, how we keep our memory center healthy, and how we stay interested in life.

But once we activate and start going, we’re better able to keep on going. A body in motion stays in motion. And it works because our brain rewards us for completing tasks, even just the first step. 7 Put your finger under your left eyebrow, close to your nose, and find the subtle notch in the bone. Just above and behind that is roughly where a big part of our motivation is activated—the medial orbitofrontal cortex, or the mOFC. Along with a complex highway of other neural architecture, it’s one of the areas that activates and is involved in rewarding behavior.

When your alarm goes off, you can’t believe how tired, how off, you feel. You get up and go about your morning activities before work, hoping that your partner or kids or dog doesn’t require any of your cognitive power, because you really don’t have any left. You get to work, open your scads of emails, and begin your day of distractions and worry. It’s just another day in the life of a stress junkie. The scenario is always different—a volunteer commitment you really don’t have the time for, the addition of a new leadership initiative to your already full plate, a request (read: demand) from an out-of-touch boss—but it plays out again and again in many people’s lives.
