Workshops 1 and 2 – Mind What You Eat: Just like any other organ, the brain requires certain nutrients to function properly. Learn the best foods to eat, as well as ways of eating, to optimise the brain and help prevent cognitive decline.
Workshop 3- Optimising Gut Health: Science has revealed that what goes on in our gut influences our mood and mental function. Learn about this ‘gut-brain axis’ and receive practical advice on how to support your gut.
Workshop 4- Stress Management: Persistent high levels of the stress hormone cortisol may impact on brain cells. We will provide practical advice for reducing stress naturally.
Workshop 5- Improving Sleep: Sleep is vital for optimal brain health. Statistics show we are sleeping less, and problems such as getting to sleep or staying asleep are common. Diiscuss different strategies for supporting sleep.
Workshop 6- Physical Activity and Brain Training : Exercise increases blood flow to the brain and helps produce brand new cells within the part of the brain responsible for memory and emotions. We will reveal how exercise can lift mood and help with stress management. There’s an old adage – ‘use it or lose it’. The adult brain continuously adapts to stimulation. We will explore how exercising the brain allows new connections to be created and maintained.
All information ( eg handouts, recipes and self care journal) is emailed to attendees following each workshop, in order to be kind to our environment! If you would like printed copies, these need to be requested in advance and a charge is payable.
