Prior to entering his 60s, Alton Brown realized he needed to take better care of his body, which is why he's changed up his whole routine in order to feel good about himself.

"I've tried to build a whole bunch of things into my life that are specifically about brain health," the chef, who partnered with Neuriva, which launched the new 30-Day Brain Health Challenge, an easy and fun way to redefine cognitive potential and establish a brain-healthy routine, exclusively tells Morning Honey. "I've reworked my exercise regiment for my brain sleep, which turns out to be more critical than any of us know. My brain doesn't work properly unless I'm constantly in a state of learning and studying something. My wife and I spent several weeks in Japan at the end of last year, and now I'm studying Japanese."

The chef is interested in how the mind and body works together.

The TV star makes sure to put away any screen two hours before he goes to bed. "My eyeballs get so taxed. Also, I'm working on finishing up a book manuscript that's a collection of essays and memoir-esque material, so that's been a very taxing endeavor. It's forcing me to use chunks of my brain that I have probably not paid a lot of attention to. Now, I feel like I am doing better work," he notes.

Alton Brown said he has a very strict routine in place.

Brown also sticks to a strict bedtime of 10:30 p.m. "I know that will float around occasionally, but by 11 p.m., it's lights out. I get up quite early — between 5:30 a.m. and 6 a.m. I write better in the morning," he insists. "I have specific times of day that I find I exercise better and more effectively. I've also broken working out into small micro sessions throughout the day so I'm not trying to cram everything into an hour and a half. Instead, I've broken it up into multiple times a day that have windows and it can move around inside the window. One of the worst things you can do is give yourself no room for flexibility."

Alton Brown feels 'in charge' in his sixties.

"The more regimented you can be, the more you can train your body like a dog," he adds.

Brown can sometimes be on the move, which is why he has some tips when dealing with jet lag.

"I would arrive in a city that was several hours different from mine. I would go to the hotel and hit the hotel bar and go to sleep," he says. "Now, as soon as I hit the ground, I exercise. I do things to try to reset, and I eat very little the first day I'm in a new place."

Since Brown is so interested in how the mind and body are connected, his partnership with Neuriva, which launched the new 30-Day Brain Health Challenge, an easy and fun way to redefine cognitive potential and establish a brain-healthy routine, made perfect sense.

Award-Winning Chef Alton Brown launches Neuriva’s 30-Day Brain Health Challenge at an intimate dinner party in New York City.

"I've been working with the brand for a couple of years. It was kind of fortuitous because when they first came to me, I was already pretty deep in brain supportive research from a culinary standpoint, and I had already read some of the same papers they were referring to," Brown says. "It was easy for me to quickly understand the quality of the signs they were doing. Since working together, they've come out with other products, and they've continued to build a really good brain health supporting supplement."

"I try to take care of my brain," he concludes. "I now feel more in charge and feel like I have better energy since taking Neuriva and changing my routine. I am able to concentrate. I've taken Neuriva almost every day for two years — and it works!"
