After writing last night that I don't enjoy eating at restaurants all that much, I joined my couple friends Rick and Orma and David and Virginia at Hank's Pizza tonight. I know the importance of eating in community and I'll admit it was great having yet another night of camraderie with special people.
I never heard of Dr. Daniel G. Amen before; have you? Anyhow, Dr. Amen, a psychiatrist, had recently appeared on public television during the fund-raising period and presented a talk from his new book, "Change Your Brain, Change Your Life."
After dinner, we went to Rick and Orma's to watch Dr. Amen's presentation which they had tivo'd. It was informative, fun and the good doc had a great sense of humor. Below are excerpts from YouTube's presentation by Dr. Amen. Though I didn't really learn anything I didn't already know, he definitely reinforced the importance of brain health and I highly recommend watching his talk. It was life affirming.
Dr. Amen also has a blog with lots of practical information. Let me know what you think.
