Learn why it is important to stretch your brain, to try new things (and to fail) and to continue to try and improve. Learn about our "Lizard Brain"  (also known as the amygdala),an important component of our brain that impacts how we learn, but the learning is related to the time when humans hunted in the wild. This part of the brain holds us back in many ways, and although it once protected us now it tends to hold us back.

What can we do about this? The video explores this and discusses some of the ways we can "dance" with this "Lizard Brain" and move from a fixed mindset to a growth mindset. For more information take the time to watch this video.

Getting the proper amount of exercise is one of the most important elements to maintaining a healthy, happy lifestyle.

Only about "12% of students get the recommended amount of exercise for a healthy state of being...consider the benefits that a great workout can have on your smarts. Studies show that exercising doesn't just boost your health, it can also boost your intelligence and mental acuity. From elementary school all the way through college-level education, regular exercise is seen to improve test scores and even IQ levels. In fact, working out right before a test can aid in boosting performance."
