Brain Gym® in the Classroom

Brain Gym’s fun and easy movements optimize how we learn and perform in all areas of our lives while reducing the stress around brain function. Regular practice of Brain Gym movements stimulates every part of the brain to work simultaneously. This can bring about rapid and lasting changes in fundamental abilities including focus, organization, comprehension, physical coordination, memory, attentiveness and social and communication skills.

This session provides an overview of Brain Gym and an opportunity to practice some of the Brain Gym movements that can be used in the classroom.

Take a Brain Break

Do you sometimes feel like you can’t think clearly or that you lack focus? Do you find yourself reaching for another cup of coffee? There is a better way to clear that brain fog. You can take a Brain Break.

For most of us, the work we do is dependent on our unique brain. And while we often think about ways to keep our body healthy, we don’t give as much thought to ways of keeping our brain healthy and running smoothly?

This presentation starts with a brief history of the coffee break followed by some activities that can be added into our day to ease the stress that we put on our brain and our body. You will leave with some practical strategies to use during your coffee break so that you return to your work feeling mentally sharp with clear focus.

Multi-Tasking is Good for your Brain

You have heard it before, ‘Don’t multi-task! You are not as efficient.’ A bit of back ground information on how your brain works will show you that you can multi-task and that, done correctly, you will actually be more efficient. So what is the secret to efficient multi-tasking? This session shows you what to do and what not to do to achieve your best performance when multi-tasking.

Cow Trails Through your Brain

Your brain makes about 35,000 choices a day! Are you making the right choices? Relationships with co-workers, productivity, and job satisfaction can be hampered by thinking patterns. Acknowledging these patterns and applying scientifically proven activities creates a fit brain leading to a better work environment and home life.

This is an interactive session for individuals who want to choose the path of a sharp mind and enjoy more creativity, an improved sense of well-being, higher productivity and a more fulfilling work and personal life.
