If we were cars, our brains would be the engines. They are part of the nervous system that flows throughout our entire bodies. Our brains are physical organs (like our hearts and kidneys and lungs), but they are also social organs, built on experience. Our brains are constantly processing information about experiences from the past and present and they also help us anticipate the future.
Learning about our brains can help us understand our moods, thoughts, feelings, attitudes, beliefs and behaviors as well as our relationships with other people.
Mind = Body
A healthy mind can lower blood pressure, strengthen immune systems, and reduce chronic disease. Likewise, taking good care of our bodies can lower anxiety, increase energy, and help us focus.
