Muscles compensate for misalignment, reducing blood flow to the brain. Research at the University of Leeds confirmed that bad posture can raise heart rate and blood pressure. Alignment doesn't mean throwing your shoulders back and standing like a soldier in old cartoons. It means finding balance as you move. Many ways help support the alignment of the body: Feldenkrais Method (movement reeducation to increase levels of vital energy), osteopathy (holistic medicine focusing on musculoskeletal alignment), chiropractic (spinal adjustment to improve bodily function), Rolfing (hands-on connective tissue manipulation), massage, yoga, Alexander Technique (teaching improved posture), ballet, Trager Approach (receptive and active body realignment), and others.

Researchers discovered that the brain is more like an ecosystem than a stagnant silverware divider. All the parts interact with each other. In fact, the brain is a self-operating system, says Dr. Nancy Andreasen in her book, The Creating Brain. A self-operating system operates like a flock of starlings: the whole group instantaneously veers to one side, then the other, without stopping for a meeting to decide what to do. That's just what your brain does when you're falling off your bike. Through a rapid-fire series of connections, the structures of your brain talk to each other and produce an instantaneous response that is intelligent, even though you don't have to think about it.

Consider how delicate the brain is, crammed into the hard skull. An injury can occur even without the loss of consciousness. Dr. Daniel Amen recommends some boosters for protecting it: Think about your brain before you do activities that might put it at risk—even for a mild concussion. Wear protective gear while playing sports (especially important for kids). Don't hit a soccer ball with your head. Fasten your seatbelt. Avoid motorcycles. Wear a helmet when you ride a bike. Walk facing automobile traffic, so you and the driver can see each other.
