143: How to Remember Jokes

143: How to Remember Jokes

2019-08-1200:19:5414

How do you memorize jokes? How many times have you wanted to remember a joke, but you just can’t?  Being able to remember a joke is a great conversation starter, and it’s also great for your brain. But for some reason, jokes are hard to remember for many of us, and we end up ruin the fun even when we try.  This episode is a segment from my recent Instagram Live, where I answer questions we get from our Kwik Brain Community. And as someone who loves humor, this is one of my favorite topics. In today’s episode, I’ll share you with a couple of memory jokes and some simple tips to remember them.  ** Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?

What should you know about women’s brains?  The historical conception that male brains are superior to female brains is finally being overturned—but while there is no difference in our intelligence, there are subtle structural differences in female brains that can heighten the risk of health conditions for women, including Alzheimer’s disease, migraines, and depression. Few people are aware of this, so raising awareness and helping people to feel more comfortable seeking assistance with these types of health concerns is incredibly important.  An international researcher in Alzheimer’s prevention, author of the incredible book Brain Food, and a nutrition expert and neuroscientist, today’s guest Lisa Mosconi has years of invaluable nutrition and neuroscience knowledge from a career spent working to prevent brain deterioration.  You can check out my previous episode with Lisa here: Episode 88: Eating For Your Brain with Dr. Lisa Mosconi  In this episode, we’ll explain the differences between female and male brains, including differences in hormones and health risks. We’ll explain some ways you can become more aware of women’s brain health, and explain what a typical brain scan might look like for a woman experiencing a decline in brain health. Finally, we’ll tell you why you should take care of yourself in the busiest decades of your life, and why you (or the women in your life) should never be ashamed of seeking out health treatment.  ** Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?

How can you use math to build your mental fitness?  People often talk about wanting to increase their physical fitness—they want to be more flexible, agile, and have more energy, but what about being mentally fit? One of the greatest exercises we can do to build our mental fitness is math. Aside from boosting our brainpower, math can also build our confidence, make us feel capable, and help us to tackle obstacles in other areas of our lives.  You might know Danica from her role as Winnie Cooper in Wonder Years, but what you might not know is that in addition to her lifelong acting career, Danica is an internationally-recognized mathematician, New York Times best-selling author and advocate for math education.  In this conversation, we explain how you can build mental fitness through math, and gain confidence that nobody will be able to take from you. We’ll talk about how math can help you to overcome life’s obstacles and feel more capable. Lastly, we’ll tell how you can rebrand math so it is no longer something to fear.  ** Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?
