According to the referenced study above, giving your brain a mental break, not just a physical one, should be in order after receiving a concussion.
A few years ago my son, Ryan was at a friend's house and fell off a trampoline hitting his head on the bar. To this day he doesn't remember even playing there that day. He certainly seemed out of whack for several days after the incident and an ER diagnosis of concussion.
Have you, or a family member, suffered with a concussion before? If so, do you think taking a mental vacation sounds like good advice?
