Our brains work hard to keep up with the demands of our physical bodies and minds. As a vital organ, our brain controls our thoughts, behaviors, relationships, sex drive, heart rate, disease risk, and so much more. The daily activities of life revolve around our brain, and yet it is so easy to forget the things we need to do in order for it to thrive.
