4Feng Shui Intro The Mind and the Body The Feng Shui Application
5The MindThe mind is an organ with roughly 50–100 billion neurons which have cells that pass signals to each other via approximately 100 trillion synaptic connections.
6Cerebrum (also called the cerebral cortex or just the cortex Neurons share the same characteristics and have the same parts as other cells, but the electrochemical aspect lets them transmit signals over long distances (up to several feet or a few meters) and pass messages to each other.
7The MindThe mind requires a lifelong plan: at random intervals during each and every day, one should increase neuron usage to activate memory.
8ExamplesIf you are a techie, try to write a philosophical paper on Socrates.If you are a writer and aren’t very art-savvy, take a drawing class.Play a game of memory, spelling, or boggle.Listen to how many different bird calls you can hear in a park.
9These types of exercises will increase the usage of neurons to be used when they are typically ignored or undeveloped.Reminder: You might not be good at it but that does not mean you can’t do it.The reason? To keep ALL parts of the mind active and functional.
10Feng Shui and Wellness Ones mind is similar to rooms or floor-plans: There are different areas that perform different functions.When a section of your mind is not functioning well, it affects the rest of your mind.

15The BodyWellness of one’s body requires proactive maintenance versus reactive maintenance.Cardiovascular, muscularExerciseYoga and PilatesDigestiveMilkshakes or healthy protein?
