Today’s Challenge: Can you figure out this tricky problem?

Today, in newspapers and television, everyone keeps talking about how important it is to keep our bodies healthy with exercise, a good diet, etc. However, something that rarely gets mentioned is that the same applies to our most important “muscle,” namely the brain.

For some reason, mental health ends up at the back of the entertainment industry. For a society that revolves around working hard, where money is everything, you would think that therapy and mental healing would be a big priority. But that is not the case, in some places, those words are even considered taboo.
