Lesson 01 - The Amazing Brain: Understanding The Basics
Wednesday

The brain is an amazing organ. Weighing approximately three pounds, and containing approximately 100 billion neurons, the brain controls all necessary functions of the body, receives and interprets information from the outside world, and embodies the essence of the mind. Intelligence, emotion, and memories are just a few of the processes governed by the brain.

Lesson 02 - Wire Your Brain for Happiness
Friday

The hidden power of everyday positive experiences can change your brain and change your life. Everyone wants to be happy and healthy. By focusing on becoming happier and creating positive experiences, research suggests that you will experience increased energy, improved immune function, increased creativity, improved relationships, and increased productivity—happiness results in a healthier brain, a more vibrant body, and a longer life.

Lesson 03 - Music, Sound, and the Healthy Brain

Whether you are listening to rock music in your car or listening to Mozart at home, music has an effect on your brain. Engaging in musical activity (listening and creating) involves almost every region of your brain. Music affects the brain, the mind, the thought process, and the spirit.

Lesson 04 - Meditation and Brain Health
Friday

Meditation is a mind-body practice with many methods and variations that are all based on the silence and stillness of present-moment awareness.

Do you wake up in the morning feeling sleepy? Do you feel sleepy during the day? A good night's sleep is essential for your brain and your body as food and water.

Sleep quality affects your mental and physical health in ways science is just beginning to understand.

Lesson 06 - Play And The Brain: Why Play Matters To Your Gray Matter
Friday

"Act like a child" is probably not a phrase that is on the top of anyone's mind. Yet, researchers are discovering that there are many health benefits to rediscovering your inner child. Play is vital to the health of human beings, and it is an essential component of a healthy life. Play is present in all mammals, including human beings. In human beings, it is equally important for children as it is for adults. While childishness is not desirable, being "childlike" is.
