How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are? The fountain of youth is found between your ears. In this episode, I would like to talk about brain tips based on Dr. Daniel Amen’s book, “Use Your Brain to Change Your Age.” We all want a brain that’s healthy and agile. In this book, I dedicated a chapter on lifelong learning and how to use that to keep your brain young, agile, and adaptable. We can keep our brain young by developing new connection through novelty and nutrition. And in this episode, I want to talk about some of the exercises you can do to create more connections in your brain. 20 Tips to help you become a lifelong learner:

  1. Find your motivation to learn something new.
  2. Read books, not just articles and emails.
  3. Turn your car into University on wheels.
