Tests on mice showed they grew new brain cells in a brain region called the dentate gyrus, a part of the hippocampus that is known to be affected in the age-related memory decline that begins around age 30 for most humans.
Our dentate gyri must be gyrating.
Yesterday I went to the 9:30 AM yoga class. I hadn’t been to a yoga class in nearly ten years, since the time a nice Indian lady nearly killed me while trying to make me stand on my head.
I went because Janet-my-personal-trainer and a few other people had said that the instructor was great. What they didn’t tell me was that he does a great class of aerobic yoga. After a full hour of vigorous yet-not-quite-enjoyable contorting into a pulse-racing state, my sweat and I were lying on the mat (thank G-d I used a regular padded mat instead of a thin yoga mat or I’d be bruised, too) “relaxing” in the dark. The instructor tells us to “empty all thoughts from your mind” but the only thought in my mind was, “My *ss is grass”.
However, about an hour after the class was done, I felt Well. I mean Well in the Gagdad Bob-kind of Well.
So the question is, Is it worth having to take
2 4 Tylenol today, or should I just stick to regular gym stuff and Pilates? (I do like Pilates a lot)
I’ll ponder this and other cosmic questions while I research a post on an article Feisty sent yesterday.
