Sheila Glazov's October Brain Buzz

October welcomes Autumn dressed in brilliant orange, red, yellow and rust. She arrives with an air of crispness and a sense of change.

For some people the change is a "Trick" and for others a "Treat".

  Let's welcome Autumn's changes, tricks and treats to...
  Live Better
 Work Smarter

Change: A Trick or Treat?
There's no "Trick" to learning how each Brain Color deals with change.

It will be a "Treat" for you and others to recognize and appreciate how each Brain Color uniquely manages change.   
Yellow Brainers: Need to feel organized and secure
when dealing with change. If they are offered a detailed plan they will more willing to accept change.
Blue Brainers: Intuitively trust their feelings to change.
They need to have time to talk about and share their ideas with others in order to completely embrace change.  

Green Brainers: Must gather all the facts about how the change will affect them. They diligently conduct extensive research and study the consequences that could result from the change.
Orange Brainers: Constantly create change. They are change agents, who welcome variety because they become bored easily and cannot stand monotony.

Does Change bring a smile or a frown 
                   to your face?

studentsCherry Apple Crisp with Ginger  

Each year my husband and I enjoy our "Annual Autumn Color Motorcycle Trip" to Door County, Wisconsin. We tow our motorcycle and spend a week riding the scenic 75 mile long and 18 mile wide peninsula, marveling at the gorgeous foliage, eating delicious food, enjoying the spectacular countryside and water panoramas, admiring beautiful artwork and appreciating our precious time together.  

Each year we plan our vacation and utilize our "Yellow Brains". We reserve our condo at Eagle Harbor Inn in Ephraim, which is in the middle of the peninsula with easy access to our favorite roads to ride. Our "Yellow" planning makes our vacation easy and relaxing.

We have lots of "Orange" fun and do not have to think about where to ride, shop, visit and/or eat.  
Door County is known for bountiful harvests of cherries and Honey Crisp apples. Below is one of our favorite recipes from Eagle Harbor Inn, which also can be made Gluten Free.

South Africans Celebrate Their Brain Colors
Previously, I have written about my colleague and friend, Jenny Roberts Buck from the University of South Africa. Last month, Jenny's "Brain Color" PRIDE workshop for teachers, parents and students in Durban was "a great success!"
Jenny said that the Department of Education representatives, who attended the conference, were very impressed with my Brain Color approach and eager to discuss implementation in the schools.

Jenny had promised me photos; and when I opened my computer, the morning after her program, my "Blue Heart" sang and my "Blue Eyes" spilled with tears of joy!

The pictures spoke 10,000 words when I my screen became a palate of workshop attendees wearing their Brain Colors smiles and scarves that Jenny made.

Yesterday, Jenny wrote: "Had an awesome
 workshop with HIV/AIDS counselors."
