Mind & Body Performance Training
A Fit Brain is Just as Important as a Fit Body
A generation or two ago physical fitness was becoming a new industry. Gyms and health clubs started springing up in every neighborhood. Today, brain fitness is getting people’s attention.
Students are under ever increasing pressure to perform well academically. Adults are faced with rapid change in the work place that requires continual training and retraining. Baby boomers, watching their parents and now their friends dealing with dementia are searching for strategies to keep their brain sharp.
An Apple a Day Won’t Keep the Doctor Away
There is no one magic bullet for brain health and fitness. An over-all lifestyle strategy that includes key components is required. An apple a day will help, so will exercise, so will meditation. But also helpful is lying in a hammock in the back yard, learning a new board game with the kids, playing the piano or eating salmon more often than steak.
The key is including specific elements into your lifestyle. However, your lifestyle can still look different from everyone else’s.
On our side is the advancement of new research methods. In days of yore the research primarily consisted of observing behaviour and gathering statistics. While those methods of research are still valuable and still widely used, researchers now have new methods at their disposal.
The fMRI, the CT scan and the PET scan are just some of the modern tools available to researchers looking to find out more about the mysteries of our brain.
What Does That Mean for You?
As research methods improve so does both the quality and quantity of information that is coming to us about our brains every day. Rather than being helpful all this information can be confusing.

Change Your Brain, Change Your Body
Eat 2-3 walnuts a day to improve your brain power and memory, and slow down the aging of your brain.
Your brain, more complex than any computer, operates on about the same amount of power that would light a 10-watt bulb.
