How did Michael and Dr. Robyn meet? Everything connects to everything else! What are some of the best ways to strengthen your brain? You need to learn something that you’re not good at! Challenge yourself! How do you reverse dementia? Michael shares an example he sees with his own parents. There is just one factor that seems to be predictive of longevity, health, and happiness. And that one factor was the sense of loving connection. Don’t like people? You can get the same benefit for craving for animals and plants. Oxytocin prevents dementia! You need to constantly seek out positive role models. Unfortunately, the media punishes the older population. Our body might wear out. Our joints might get older, but you know! Our brain is not one of those things. What does Michael’s workout routine look like and how does it strengthen the brain? We will experience adversity throughout our lifetime and it will challenge us to our core. The most important question you can ask yourself is: How do I learn from it? Michael loves to watch something funny so that he goes to bed laughing! We have access to the internet, we can find our community and the positive people that will enhance and enrich our lives!
