Care About Brain Health NOW

image-brainworksTHE HARD WIRING IN OUR BRAINS STARTS EARLY ON.

Our capabilities to learn, manage emotion, develop healthy friends, remember, problem solve and play well with others, are determined largely by how the early childhood brain is protected and sculpted.

UNPREDICTABLE BEHAVIOR IS MORE THAN “JUST A TEEN THING”.

During the teen years, the brain is pruning away some of those neurons not in use in order to improve its efficiency. The teenage brain is very sensitive to alcohol and other substances, and is forming the logic and reasoning center.

STRESS IS WHAT YOU DO WITH IT

Too much stress can hurt your brain and your body. Learning the right balance of good stress and bad stress, and what to do with the thoughts and feelings that accompany it, is important in guiding you to health and happiness.

A BRAIN HEALTHY LIFESTYLE BOOSTS RESILIENCE TOWARDS ALZHEIMER’S AND OTHER DEMENTIAS

Brain health is a combination of physical health, through exercise, nutrition, weight management and sleep; cognitive or brain fitness, through ongoing learning and diverse experiences; and vitality, through feeling connected and purposeful. Research shows these lifestyle activities protect your mind.

BRAIN HEALTH DELIVERS THE GREATEST HEALTH BENEFITS

Your brain is the home of who you are—your dreams, your wishes, your mood, memories and relationships. Your brain is your greatest asset and determines your quality of life.
