Hi everyone! Caleb Electric Brain here! I wanted to jump on here and tell you about a new plan for me. Because of a family situation, I'm going to have to focus on serving them more for a couple months, which unfortunately means that I probably won't be back on here for a while. I'll still post a video this Monday, but then I need to focus on my family after that. Once we're back to normal, I plan to come back on here and post as usual. Thanks for your support!

What’s a good way to keep your brain healthy, while keeping you entertained at the same time?

Learning another language. “Hold on. What?! Learning another language is super hard!” I know. That's why it's a really good for your brain. You see, not only will it allow you to speak to different people, but according to extraclass.it, “Because language is complex, speaking or learning a foreign language (also) gives your brain a good workout.” It says that “Compared to people that speak one language, adults who speak multiple languages are more likely to… be better at planning, prioritizing, and decision making… have better focus, concentration, and attention… have better memory and memorization skills…” and a bunch of other things. For me, learning another language is really hard at first, but once I have some kind ofhandle on it, it gets more fun!

Did you know that jumping on a trampoline can help your brain? That’s right! vulyplay.com says that it “strengthens the muscles of your cardiovascular (heart) system,” this will help needed oxygen get to your brain, “and the boost in oxygen levels will make you feel more alert!” It also helps you with your balance since you are almost never on flat terrain. One of the ways I like to work out on the trampoline, is by playing a family sport called “Arch”. It was invented by my uncle, and my family loves it. I’ll teach you how to play this game in my next video.

Hey guys! I wanted to jump on here today and tell you that I have the opportunity, as part of my Church service mission, to work at a new place. Social distancing is pretty well-established there, and I’m pretty confident in my safety. I’m excited for it, but unfortunately that means that I will not be able to work on Caleb Electric Brain as much. But don’t worry. I’ll still post every Tuesday and Thursday, but I’ll only post a video every 3 weeks for now, not 2. Thanks for your understanding. Stay safe.
Did you know that playing a musical instrument can actually help your brain?! Well it can! According to classicfm.com, “Researchers have found that learning to play a musical instrument can enhance verbal memory, spatial reasoning and literacy skills.” It goes on to say that, “Playing an instrument makes you use both sides of your brain, which strengthens memory power.” So this Monday, I'll share a video about how to play a song on the ukulele. Hope to see you then!
