CHILDHOOD BRAIN MODIFICATION: Do This Now
Suck a paperclip up your nose! This one's from Jim Burrows Get a medium-small rubberband and a paperclip. Put the rubberband around your palm and the back of your hand. Thread the paperclip onto the band, then hold the paperclip between thumb and forefinger. If you let it go, the paperclip should instantly snap back, vanishing from sight.

In the process, I’ve learned that making little changes in our attitudes, habits, and environment can have a big impact.
