  1. Excellent points. Lately I have been playing Tetris Battle (Level 17) …. very good brain exercise. Also trying to keep up with reading volumes and volumes of interesting blogs. Thanks for sharing this to help our brains! Cheers

  2. Tina,

    I started meditating about five years ago. I usually meditate every morning for 10-15 minutes. And it’s helped me so much. I feel so much more calm, patient, and “centered.” I also believe that it helps me think more clearly.

  3. Greg, I truly believe you are correct. I need to find more time to meditate, it is such a great practice for centering ones self. I find that when I wake up in the middle of the night, which is often, that it is a great time to mediate. I may not go back to sleep, but I also am refreshed when I get up. Thank you for your comment. Enjoy your Monday evening!
