What does your brain eat?
Mine likes documentaties on science, health, and the brain.
Books on philosophy and psychology.
Oh and it likes play time with puzzles and games.
I feed my brain by listening to music, documentaries, biographies, science periodicals, science fiction movies, sociology, philosophy, and cosmology. For fun my brain likes inventing, playing music, recording music, producing music, and working out. For relaxing my brain likes boating and fishing.
My brain loves books; I can easily read for hours. It loves puzzles, games, logic, building new worlds games. She loves mystery and romance, but also Ancient Egypt, Victorian era, travel, learning French and the guitar. She loves discussions, and hearing the thoughts and opinions of others. She demands freedom, honesty, kindness, and nature. She often wonders if she was born in the right era. How about you?
With the exception of "puzzles and games" I feed my brain the same goodies you feast upon.
I also include active interaction with people, a few books, a variety of movies, music (classics) and an endless chain of mental and physical projects. (designing, building (software and hardware) and fixing things).
Never been much into games, though I might indulge more of that post-retirement.
Documentaries, non-fiction books, yes to that!
I am also very fortunate to love my work enough to consider it recreational (I'm a software developer). If I ever stop working I will probably indulge vanity projects on the side. I might even end up releasing some of them as open source.
My wife and I enjoy travel and we hope to keep active with that. I also walk a great deal. My goal this spring, soon as the weather eases up, is to tackle a 14 mile round trip walk on a local trail -- or as much of it as I can anyway. We have some hiking planned on an upcoming vacation and I want to be in shape for it.
Documantaries are great. I just got out a Planet Earth DVD for later.
I love Sci-fi, there is a great short film channel on YouTube called Dust that has some cool stuff.
I like to read whatever catches my eye at the library if I ever get a chance to go there. lol
