This week we have been talking about strong bodies, strong mind. Yesterday we heard from coach O’Hara on the importance of drinking water, but he also said that getting sleep was also extremely important. So today we are going to talk about circadian rhythm.

All week we have been talking about strong bodies, strong minds, how much water to drink and how much sleep we need to get every night. Today we are going to talk about food for the brain. Jay would like you to think about this question over the weekend…what should we feed our brains?

Many doctors and nutritionists agree that thinks like beans, fruits, vegetables, nuts and whole grains are perfect things to eat for a healthy brain so keep eating these things and lay off the sweets and fast food which doesn’t really help your brain.

Brains are different. There are people who are left brain dominate. They may like math, logic, facts, rational, and order. Then there are right brain people who think things like creativity, imagination, intuition, emotion, storytelling are very important to them and their thinking styles. How do these look at home? Jay Hall shoes us the characteristics of both and how you can tailor learning styles for each.
