EXERCISE YOUR MIND!

The mind is a terrible thing to waste!” so, what do you do to keep your mind agile & functioning well? This post is for you,women of authenticity. I’d like to have your take on keeping a beautiful mind,well, beautiful:) When I return from my day job( as bills must be paid) I’ll let you in on how I keep sane in an oftentimes insane world by exercising my mind! Meanwhile, this is your time to shine & enlighten readers with your wisdoms by sharing  your insights on how you “keep” your mind… PS

So, this morning before heading out to work, I asked folks to weigh in on how they keep their mind from certain atrophy as we know the mind is a terrible thing to waste & all. Thanks for your response so far, the doors are still open ,so I’ll contribute my bit in hopes you’ll take a moment to share as well…

Reading is a habit I’ve cultivated since the age of 6. During my teens, when most girls sought their next sweetheart, it was the library that took my breath away…shelves upon shelves of mystery, intrigue and imagery captured my heart and swept me away to far-away worlds.

Music , preferably blues, gospel, soft rock & country soothes me. My mind reacts to  rhythms, range, pitch, lyrics and sounds…Sometimes I dance to the rhythm of the beat 🙂

Old Movie Classics- people 50 & over can relate to the ole black & whites: the era of Betty Davis, Lena Horne and Lauren Bacall & Humphrey Bogart..Today’s television programs would be Supernatural, Lifetime and Fearnet.

The main thing I do to exercise my mind is make time for quiet time/me time early in the mornings when I’m alone with my thoughts, or, early morning walks to work , experiencing the ambiance of  Mother Nature…

  1. Clara, I listen to the radio throughout the day, but not just any radio. It’s a local Christian station that fills me with great food for thought. Its main thrust is its radio talk shows. I also work out several times a week with book in hand. My workout might not be as strenuous as it should be, but it’s the only time I can grab for reading at this point in my life, so much is accomplished in my mind. These are the two main ways. I really don’t watch TV anymore. Keeping my mind focused on the things that are most important to me, filling my mind with healthy, positive things, and not taking in any more of the junk than I can help, is a great way to live, I’ve found.
