My love for you is immeasurable
My respect for you immense
You’re ageless, timeless, lace and fineness
You’re beauty and eleganceYou’re a rhapsody, a comedy
You’re a symphony and a play
You’re every love song ever written
But honey what do you see in meYou’re in my heart, you’re in my soul
You’ll be my breath should I grow old
You are my lover, you’re my best friend
You’re in my soul……………………………….Rod Stewart
Dr. Krystal Culler joined Memory Matters as our Associate Executive Director in January this year. She brought with her more than outstanding and relevant academic qualifications! Krystal is attentive to the five Brain Health interventions we teach in the community at large and apply every day in our Memory Care Center in the Compass programs, as well as in the Churches and retirement communities, where we teach Brain Boosters and Connections classes. We are witnessing some terrific and innovative changes to assist our Care Families, and Krystal’s preparedness to “roll up her sleeves” and help the Staff in practical ways is motivating to both Staff and we the volunteers.
Krystal was invited to contribute to a recent article on Brain Health which stresses the importance of starting at a young age and practicing “good habits” to optimize Brain Wellness. Don’t leave things too late!
In writing this introduction to Krystal’s words and the article in “Bustle” I was reminded of Dr. Stephen Covey’s best seller on the “Seven Habits of Highly Effective People.” He speaks of good habits being formed by those with knowledge, skill, and motivation. This applies not just to management but to Brain Health Education too. How we all practice optimizing our individual brain wellness requires attention to the achievement of good habits. Stephen Covey also wrote these wise words: “One of the great lessons I remember my Dad constantly emphasizing in our family while I was growing up was “Use your R&I.” That is, use your resourcefulness and initiative. He taught us that we were not victims of the circumstances surrounding us, but rather masters of our own destiny.”
In 13 Little Things You Can Do Every Day to Improve Your Brain Health, Krystal wrote:
“If you’re interested in improving your brain health, you’re in luck. There are so many little things you can do every day to not only to feel better mentally, but to also give your brain what it needs to function at its best. And this can include simple stuff, like drinking more water, exercising, meditating — and even doing nothing.
Small habits like these can all add up to a healthier brain, which is something you should prioritize. After all, “lifelong brain health matters as we get one brain for our lifetime,” Dr. Krystal L. Culler, DBH, M.A., founder of Your Brain HealthMatters, LLC, tells Bustle. So the sooner you can start taking care of it, the better.”
