As much as I was looking forward to seeing documentary The Genius Of Marian, a large part of me was dreading it knowing that I was about to sit in a dark room and watch a story that was about what I live day to day. When I usually go to the movie theatre, it's to escape, relax and forget. [caption id="attachment_1954" align="aligncenter" width="300"]hot docs genius of marian The Genius of Marian played at Toronto's HotDocs[/caption] Not even five minutes in I felt relieved meeting the film subject, director Banker White's mother, Pam White, who lives with early-onset Alzheimer's. Full of love for her family, happiness in her home and passion to continue her life as independently as possible she reminded me a lot of my mom, also living with the disease. For me, this made the movie incredibly easy to watch as I felt understood and supported by the family on the screen.

To keep things simple, think of your brain like any other part of your body... if you don’t use it, you lose it, right? You lift heavy weights in the gym to keep your body sharp, just like you can perform brain fitness programs to keep your memory sharp... but there are definitely some benefits of exercising, especially cardiovascular exercise, on the brain specifically.
