As A Former New Yorker, This Helped Me Adjust To Living & Driving In A New City

I was a New Yorker for 13 years. If I had to get somewhere, I would sit back in a taxi, Uber, or train and simply let someone else take me where I needed to go. So, as you can imagine, flexing my driving muscles for the first time in over a decade after my recent move from NYC to Miami was a shock to the system.

Driving a car is like riding a bike, right?

Listen, moving to a new city is difficult enough without relearning how to drive.

Even though I grew up in California and am fully capable of operating a motor vehicle, my driving skills were a little rusty. Add a couple of kids in the backseat and you’ve got yourself a potential recipe for disaster. 

I’ll be honest, I waited a full two months after our move before driving in Florida. After years of public transportation, the idea of driving my kids in a minivan on busy suburban streets intimidated me a bit. 

Thankfully, mbg’s brain guard+ delivers the mental clarity and acuity I needed to dust off my driving skills and get me back on the road.*

How brain guard+ made relearning how to drive easier.

The takeaway.

When I think about quality of life, optimal cognitive function is high on the list of things I want to be able to control. Yes, it’s also about my brain’s performance now—like driving my girls to school with mental ease. But it’s also about cognitive health 30 years from now. 

mbg’s brain guard+ helps me tackle mental challenges today and sets me up for cognitive success in the future.* I can’t imagine life without it!
