Where does it say a health-related book can’t be fun to read?
Rock Hill, South Carolina (PRWEB) October 30, 2014
The human brain is often overlooked as a muscle, and should be more vigorously exercised to help maintain better mental health, according to Dr. Sandeep Grewal. He recently authored the book ‘Dementia Express: Lose Your Memory in 100 Ways’ for just that purpose.
The book uses counterintuitive reasoning and sometimes conflicting attitudes to help keep the reader constantly thinking. Like an obstacle course for the mind, a reader must decipher the hidden logic within.
“If you don’t use it, you just might lose it,” says Dr. Grewal, an primary care physician practicing in Charlotte, NC. “Our brains are much more reflexive than we think. How we think can directly impact just how well we think.”
The book provides a unique brain exercises of sorts, those one can do during the day while going about their daily chores. For instance, it suggests to readers that they should try to give advice to others, while actually encouraging greater work out of their own brain.
The mere practice of translating the book’s true meaning is itself an exercise meant to stimulate and sharpen the mind. That approach is what excited Dr. Grewal about the project, injecting active brain exercises into the text.
“Most health books are better suited to treat insomnia,” Grewal says with a laugh. “Where does it say a health-related book can’t be fun to read?”
Humor is another technique used to heighten the intended response, including the book’s sometimes bizarre suggestions about what’s actually “healthy” for the brain. Hidden behind the riddles and subterfuge is a solid look at just how the brain functions and the best ways to keep it in top working order.
Patients who suffer from the early onset of dementia have long been prescribed word puzzles to help keep their brains more active. Grewal’s book was designed specifically with those type recommendations in mind.
“The book challenges readers because there’s literally no predicting what’s on the next page,” Grewal explains. “Some readers say they can feel their mind getting an actual workout in the process.”
‘Dementia Express’ is available on amazon, kindle and all major book retailers websites.
