Y’all, we gotta keep our brains sharp and on point! The best way to do that is to W O R K them!
One good way is to memorize something new every day – it can be something as simple as a quote you love, a popular phrase, song lyrics, a poem, a random fact… it doesn’t matter what it is, what matters is every day you give your brain fuel!
