One way to do that is to learn new things. One way to do that is to consider the ideas of other people. Be open-minded. When you get finished you’re still the one that will make your decision. It is incredible to me, to think that having an open mind and listening to other people’s ideas maybe what is best for our brain. Stay away from depression and anger and sarcasm. All three waste time and energy. Keep formatting your brain and getting your brain used to sending signals wherever it has to. When parts of it start to die, the brain knows to use other areas that have been used before. This is just the way I think of it. The Nun Study had a lot to do with how I feel. This works for me anyway.
I wish you well. I will listen to your ideas and not scoff.
