Why This Recipe works

This recipe is considered a neurobic exercise, defined by dictionary.com as a mental exercise designed to create new neural pathways in the brain by using the senses in unconventional ways.

Research shows that this simple shift helps strengthen and activate a different part of your brain, increasing both your focus and stamina during the day. Experts have also correlated (with this exercise) positive long-term effects on mental health and well-being, giving you more control over your temper, stress, and conditions such as Alzheimers and dementia.

Just think — this simple shift is already a part of your morning routine. What’s the worst that can happen if you try it for 7 days? If you don’t find it transformative, you have a fun experience and a story to tell! 

Your turn! Take a picture of your journal and let us know what’s on your list!
