  • Concussions are considered to be a form of mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI) because they’re typically not life-threatening, but it’s becoming increasingly clear that concussions are often not mild, instead leading to serious symptoms and lasting changes in the brain
  • Common concussion symptoms include changes in mood and behavior, headache and sensitivity to light and sound; even simply “not feeling right” or feeling down after a blow to the head could signal a concussion
  • After studying the brains of hockey players who had received concussions, researchers found abnormal brain wave activity that persisted for years, along with partial wasting of motor pathways that could degrade attention
  • Falls are the most common cause of traumatic brain injury, accounting for 48% of cases
  • In the aftermath of a concussion, you’ll want to get adequate sleep to help recharge your brain and avoid excessive physical activity, driving too soon and overstimulating your brain with work or school

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Correlations exist between self-critical self-talk and self-esteem, such that the more negative thoughts you have about yourself, the more your self-esteem suffers
  • In the featured video, Julie Schiffman demonstrates a simple technique to gain control of negative mental chatter related to weight management or body image
  • People have, on average, 70,000 thoughts in a day, 40,000 of which are repetitive; this means you could be telling yourself over and over again that you’re not good enough or not worthy
  • With EFT, you can shut down the negative voice and free your mind for more positive thoughts
  • Schiffman recommends that you take “should” out of your vocabulary altogether, because whenever you say, “I should do this or that,” you’re setting yourself up for a great deal of disappointment, guilt and shame; say “could” or “will” instead

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Lutein is well-known for its vision-enhancing properties. Research also suggests it has neuroprotective qualities, improving memory and boosting intelligence
  • There’s an inverse association between lutein levels in the eyes and age-related macular degeneration (AMD), the primary cause of blindness in the elderly, as well as cataracts
  • Lutein has also been shown to prevent cell death caused by retinal detachment when administered in a timely manner, and can help improve night vision
  • Lutein may help prevent neurodegenerative diseases by preventing DNA damage, the depletion of BDNF and the degradation of a synaptic vesicle protein involved in Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. It’s also been shown to help maintain the integrity of your brain’s white matter
  • Your body cannot manufacture lutein, so you need to get it from your diet. Lutein is a carotenoid found in egg yolks, avocados, cruciferous vegetables and dark, leafy greens, especially kale and spinach
