I’m late to the keyboard. I’ve had a wonderful day. My anxiety took a leave. Whew! My body is left with a sweet delicious sensation. I am limp with happiness. My hard work is paying off. I’ve been doing all the right things. I’ve been doing MAP training my brain though I didn’t know it. That is until I watched Dr. Tracey Shors’ presentation on the Brain Change Challenge today. Another AHA moment.

I can testify how wonderful aerobic exercise is for the brain. After a few weeks of Val Kirk’s AM Energizer class at the YMCA, my brain was so happy. I was in the throws of euphoria post brain fog. That tuned me into changed physical, mental and emotion feelings. My body now remembers what delicious feels like. But the body and brain do get used to the feeling and after awhile it’s no big deal. Nothing stays the same, right? Sometimes it takes another spiraling downward and coming up again to refresh my memory. Under every cloud there is a silver lining.

It’s getting late – for me. I’ll keep this short and sweet. I need to rest my brain. It has worked hard these past couple of days. The effort put in when it’s tough going makes it strong and resilent. So here’s to challenging times. May they keep coming. They build brain and heart muscles.



About hafong

Hello! My name is (Leung) Hafong alias Lily Leung. You always say the last name first….that is the Chinese way. That is my partner lurking behind me. Since this is my blog, I won’t mention his name. But this is a rather cool picture. You see me and yet you don’t…sort of the way I feel about myself most of my life. So this blog is a self-exploration, an archeology dig of some sort. My tools…..words of a thousand or so at a sitting. I will try for that.
