  1. Extremely helpful episode for me since (1) I have a brain and (2) I am aging. Fun fact: I have been a student and practitioner of buddhism for several decades now (since college) and I believe I have benefitted from that philosophical outlook of mindfulness and nonego in staying open and flexible mentally as time goes by. (Plus I keep all burners going in writing, painting and piano playing in retirement.) I got a lot from this podcast. Going to apply some of the other tips for keeping brain happy that I learned from this episode
    Many Thanks!
