What is your Brain doing right now?
A brain is like a well-oiled and designed machine. When it’s working well—like; such as when it’s reading or studying problems that need clarification!
Such as signs and words upon a page such as the words on this blog—we don’t notice it at all. But when we sleep, the brain takes our consciousness offline; to start the real work: sorting through that day’s input of information, storing the more important things, and cleaning out the fluff and distracting elements! Brains are extremely so well-designed, so much so we seldom even notice when it’s breaking down.

When we complete mentally stimulating tasks, we engage neurons all across our brains. Distant neurons talk to each other through axons, which extend, tentacle-like, from the body of one neuron to tickle another with an electrical signal. Scientists refer to the network of axons in our brains as “white matter,” while the bodies of neurons and other cells in the brain are “grey matter.”
