Great news. I’m still remembering to haul those dratted reusable bags into the grocery store since my experiment with brain/memory a couple of weeks ago. So I thought I’d do some tested ancient exercises (instead of the ones I made up) and see if I can recover even more brain cells and improve sleep.
I ran across an article about using Chinese Health Balls to recharge. The benefits are:
- Stimulates blood circulation
- Eases joint stiffness
- Relieves stress
- Promotes sleep
- Increases Memory
HooRAY!! Count me in. So I dug out the set that Scout bought when we were in San Francisco’s China town. They emit a soft chime as I rotate them in one hand. Their purpose is to fire the acupuncture points and nerve endings, while loosening musles. This is supposed to enliven the cerebrum and nervous system leaving me refreshed and relaxed.
Personally, I think it’s the chiming sound that’s relaxing, more than the muscle twisting. And maybe the real secret behind the restorative powers of Chinese Boading balls is that you can’t cook, garden, write, or crochet when you’re twirling them in your hand.
I’m sure my memory will improve because I’m making time to sit and think about the things I’m forgetting.
