TODAY IS TRAIN YOUR BRAIN DAY
Every day we have one “muscle” that can’t be taken away from us, it shapes everything we do and how we experience the world around us. In actuality, it isn’t an actual muscle, but it is easily more powerful than even the strongest muscle. Our mind can make us sick, or make us well, it can drive us to see deception and paranoia in the actions of others, or simply other humans just trying to get along in life. Train Your Brain Day recognizes the power of the mind, and how training it to be positive can change our lives as a whole.
