If you're ever a fly on my wall and you see me on my bedroom floor, drinking wine and eating saltines just know this isn't Arielle at rock bottom. In fact According to The Times, neuroscientist Dr. Gordon Shepherd, from the Yale School of Medicine, drinking wine engages more working parts of the brain than any other human activity.
Now you're wondering exactly how this works right? Me too!!
Shepherd's book, Neuroenology: How The Brain Creates the Taste of Wine, says the process of swirling wine in your mouth wakes up tongue muscles and taste receptors that engage more of the brain than listening to music or even solving a math problem.
So instead of listening to Sade and playing Tetris just pour glass of wine and kick back and let your brain workout! This is what I call drinking responsibly!
