Remember! Mind your brain with “Memory Training”! We each can also happily change our minds by adding “Memory Training” to our daily routine. Adding “Memory Training” to our time running & walking takes no added time during our day. “Memory Training” also enhances and makes more enjoyable each step you take to a healthier/fitter body-brain-mind.

“You don’t have to burn books to destroy a culture. Just get people to stop reading them.” Ray Bradbury, in _Fahrenheit 451_

Beyond reading, we can add more to the life of our minds and hearts through “Memory Training”.
