Ep. 080 – Limit Social Media Time

Train Your Brain Podcast logo

Good morning and welcome to Episode 80 of the Train Your Brain Podcast with Dr. Michael Trayford. Every Monday we produce a 30-minute episode. Tuesday through Sunday we produce episodes with five-minute tips. Every episode of the Train Your Brain Podcast features a tip, so you can receive pointers 365 days a year that will help enhance the performance of your brain!

This morning Dr. Trayford shares tip number 80. In this day and age the expression “too much of a good thing” fits our usage of technology perfectly! So, Dr. Trayford’s tip today is to limit our use of social media. This alternate reality can actually hurt your brain function because it is distorted. Anything that is not typical will affect the brain as a stressor. Dr. Trayford gives several examples of how social media interactions are not typical, real-world conditions. Please consider limiting your social media time so as to make room for real interactions.

If you have any concerns regarding the information and applications discussed in this podcast, please consult your physician and a doctor who is experienced in functional neurology. Michael Trayford DC, DACNB is available for consultation by calling (828) 708-5274. Thanks for listening.

  1. I love your show, and find it most helpful as I grow older. I so appreciate your work and efforts to get such helpful information out to the general public.

    I have a question not regarding the brain; but, a good, nutritious diet. I’m leaning towards weight watchers because they do have you eat well balanced meals, and you maintain the weight loss if you stay on their maintenance program . There are so many programs out there–which do you think is the best?
    Thank you

  2. Thank you so much for the feedback and your comments, Phyllis.

    Your inquiry about diet is in fact inextricably linked to the brain, and healthy brain function. They are inseparable as what you put in the tank is what you get out of your brain.

    While I am not a proponent of any particular diet as different people have very different needs, Weight Watchers has done a superb job at creating a culture of awareness around what folks put into their bodies.

    It is all about balance; and knowing what you are eating, coupled with the awareness of the nutritional content, allows you to be in control of fuel delivery to your brain.

    Kudos to you for being in the small percentage of folks that take dietary needs into their own hands and want the best for themselves.

    I would love to expand on this topic in a future episode, so please let me know if you’d be willing to call in and have a conversation on this very relevant topic.

    I appreciate you and hope to speak with you soon!
