The human brain is the soul of the human nervous system. It controls involuntary activities such as respiration, digestion, and heartbeat, which are also known as automatic functions of the body. This organ also controls other conscious activities that are considered as higher order activities like reasoning, abstraction, and thought. The human brain is superior to any other brain of any other living species that are known to humankind.
The brain is also the center by which other human characteristics are defined. Creativity, for example, is much associated with the brain. So is personality. The brain lets us make decisions and define colors and smells. This organ controls every other perceived activity of the human body.
However, the human brain, as strong and as invincible as it may look, is not going to stay that way forever. As with any other part of the body, the human brain will wither in the future. One’s lifestyle and all other external factors will take a toll against the human brain. As one grows old, the human brain will become slower in terms of functioning and rejuvenating itself. However, there are ways to enhance the power of the human brain as age catches up. This article tries to give some useful tips on how to do just that.
1. Live a healthy lifestyle.
The brain is an integral part of the human anatomy. It is probably the most important organ in the body; but of course, we all know that every other organ in the body works for the others to function properly. The human brain is subject to the lifestyle of the person who owns it. If the person loves alcohol, he may not fully reap the powers of his brain. Alcohol and other dangerous substances destroy brain cells. An alcoholic will argue that, “I’ve been using only ten percent of my brain, drinking will activate the other 90% of it.” This is a total fallacy. This premonition was formulated in the 1800s and there is no truth in it. The brain is a lifetime organ, so we must preserve and protect it.
2. Eat the right foods.
Eating the right sets of food will definitely benefit the brain. The brain is the most active part of the body. Even when one sleeps, the brain remains active and vibrant. The brain will appreciate it if one eats the right and balanced sets of food. The sad thing is that the brain is usually taken for granted when it comes to having a balanced meal or a workout because people are so focused into developing their outside looks. It’s about time that we give the brain a break.
3. Engage in proper exercise.
Proper exercise is good for the brain and not only for the body. The human brain needs a well-balanced life.
4. Release stress once in a while
Releasing stress is necessary to be able to clear the brain from all the difficulties and the clouds in one’s life. One must take time to get into a relaxing mood and a good night sleep.
The brain is an organ to be cherished. No individual will ever be able to live his life to the fullest if his brain is not functioning well. A brain that is cared for will result in a more active and fulfilling life.

Panel 1- Mowgli sitting beside a tree & pondering to himself in deep thought. Not only I like the overall mood of this capture, but I also like how I drew the rest of his foot on the lower left of the panel since the original shot had it cropped.
Panel 2- Mowgli looking up after he has supposedly fallen down & turning to his attackers. I didn’t have too much of a problem drawing the rest of his feet, which were covered up by the branches, but the small near dot of his mouth I had to improve at the start & at the last minute to get the right detail there.
Panel 3- Mowgli backing up in order to protect himself to whoever is going to harm him. I like Mowgli’s line of defense that he expresses on here & how I drew the rest of the foot in the lower left side of the frame.
I also to draw the rest of the area covering up by the boomerang. That wasn’t too hard on my behalf.
Panel 4- Mowgli squatting on hands, knees & toes and touching the soft ground as if to get a sense of the surface underneath his feet. The expression of discovery & sense from an individual is something that I’ve always admired, especially if it’s from children because it exhibit’s the style of innocence & playfulness.
Panel 5- Mowgli on the ground holding his head as if from falling from a higher ground. I like the overall posture & sense of feeling that he portrays here.
Panel 6- Mowgli standing atop a hillside overlooking the edge as far as his eye can see. I like the back view & upright pose in this one, as well as the sense of emotion that is portrayed here & would great in a panoramic WIDESCREEN view on a picture frame or painting, which is what I always like to see.
Panel 7- My Favorite panel in the set. Mowgli lying down on his stomach next to his ‘Mother’ & catching a little nap. This is my favorite one because I like the feeling of rest & relaxation and overall calmness that he expresses here and just adds more to the good natured Childlike peace that is exhibited here.
Panel 8- Mowgli falling down on his side plugging his ears as to not hear Balloo’s constant loud snoring. Eh, I thought this picture was a bit humorous & the way his body is posed & expressed, so I kept it.
Panel 9- Mowgli swinging on a vine in traditional Wild Child style. You always need at least one or two frames where a Human Being is swinging from treetop to treetop, to give it a bit of ‘Tarzan’ like quality, which is why I added it to this project.
Panel 10- Mowgli hunching over & getting ready to leap over to his next destination. I like his stature & the action style pose in this one.
Panel 11- Mowgli sitting down rubbing his side as if he fell down again. Like some of the previous shots, I had to draw the rest of his foot on the lower panel. His expression on his face was pretty good too.
Panel 12- Mowgli sitting down overseeing his next possible whittling project on a piece of tree branch. I enjoyed this panel simply because the way his face has a sense of childlike delight & innocence.
Panel 13- Another shot of Mowgli kneeling down with the rest of his Wolf Pack. Another pose that I liked, although it looks a bit too small to work with, but it looked good overall.
Panel 14- Mowgli reeling away from someone or something attacking him. Another small panel, but still has some detail to it. Also had to draw the rest of the toes as they were hidden behind that dirt mound.
Panel 15- Mowgli grasping his arm like someone just hit him in a state of discipline. His expression looks a bit cartoony, though. He almost looks like he needs to call the Ghostbusters, or something. ;p Anyways, I like the pose, detail, facial expression and the way his body turns & contorts to whoever disciplined him.
And I still like the way his face looks, though.
Panel 16- Mowgli reeling in from the shock of his previous disciplinary encounter. Almost the same as the previous panel, but a bit more style to the pose & the way his arm and body is contorted to mach that style.
Panel 17- Mowgli kneeling up and now feeling a bit more calm from his previous tear. As before, the different style of posing & sequence from the other two. I also admire the sense of calmness & taking on a bit of authority from his reeling fearlessness, or something.
Panel 18- Mowgli kneeling down in a state of varied, but lone emotion. This is a somber moment between the Feral Boy & his Natural Environment that surrounds him. Another innocent type of emotion that I like.
Panel 19- Mowgli sitting down with his Wolf Pack. Although this was a rather small piece to work with, I like the relaxed sense of posture that he emotes in this particular panel.
Panel 20- Another shot of Mowgli sitting beside his Wolf Brethren. I really like the type of stature he has in a Gentlemen sense of fashion in this one. It makes him look like the Man Cub that will dominate his Jungle.
Panel 21- Mowgli atop on a high tree branch ready to take action. I like the way his body contorts to match that stylish & authentic Action Movie pose that I’ve always liked in these projects.
Panel 22- Mowgli on the same branch in the previous panel, but with a varied yet puzzled look on his face. Eh, I think I might’ve overexaggerated his face here, especially the mouth, but at least I did the rest of the pose & his body justice if I may say so.
Panel 23- Mowgli sitting on a rock in a deep thoughtful expression. Another picture of the Feral Boy in a calm & peaceful manner with all thoughts of ill passing away. and stuff.
Panel 24- Mowgli lying on his back, pondering about something on his mind. Another relaxing moment with the Wild Boy like the other ones before it. I often contemplated about removing the rock, but then it would look like he’s holding an invisible baseball or something. 😆 So I just left it in for the sake of it.
Panel 25- Mowgli sitting with his Wolf Pack in a lone ravine. Digitally removing that annoying mongoose around his neck wasn’t too much of a problem. I just had to draw a new shoulder on him and that was pretty much it. Other than that, the posing was once again good in this piece & realized late into the trimming process that he had a knee in there, so I had to draw his knee which was a bit hidden because of the layout of the loincloth that was blending in with the picture. Brain Tricky, eh? 😉
