Quick Tips: Keeping Your Mind Sharp

Today's Quick tips are from author and speaker Jennifer AlLee.

Keeping Your Mind Sharp
We’ve all been told how important it is to exercise our bodies. Did you know it’s just as important to exercise your brain? Here are some ways to keep it limber and running smoothly:
· Do Puzzles. Crossword puzzles, logic puzzles, Sodoku and the like are great ways to keep your brain working.
· Learn Something New.  Whether you take a night class at the local community college, or use an instructional program at home, learning a new skill requires you to think in ways you normally wouldn’t.
· Interact with People in Real Life. Using social media, email, and texts to keep up with friends and family is fine, but don’t neglect face-to-face get-togethers. Having a conversation with someone in the same room requires concentration and focus. Give your brain a break from multi-tasking.

Jennifer AlLee was born in Hollywood, California, and spent the first ten years of her life living over a mortuary one block away from Hollywood and Vine. An avid reader and writer, she completed her first novel in high school. That manuscript is now safely tucked away, never to see the light of day again.
Her first novel, “The Love of His Brother,” was published by Five Star in November 2007. She has had several more books published since then including her newest:

Jennifer shares this story about herself :  My first brush with fame came the day I was born in Hollywood, California, and my basinet neighbor in the hospital nursery happened to be Michael Landon, Jr. When she should have been looking at me, my Aunt Karen instead gaped at the man beside her and nearly passed out when she found she was standing next to Michael Landon, Sr. at the nursery window. And so, my connection with the entertainment industry had begun.

Please leave Jennifer a note or question in the comments section.
