Participants will gain a basic understanding of effective “memory” and “happiness" strategies outlined in her book, The Ten Things: A Guide to Your Brain. She will repeat many of the strategies from last winter (which earned rave reviews). This course was offered in October 2022, but had to be cancelled due to illness. You may attend for the first time, or you’re welcome to return. Memory & the Brain Your habits build your memory, like a credit score. I love to see clients increase their memory number! Your habits are the behaviors dictating working memory — perhaps 50-70% of our intelligence. You’ll get the three most powerful strategies for learning, and, ironically, less effort is required in using them. How do you talk about your memory? Do you think it’s good or terrible? Which fruits and vegetables do you eat daily? How many hours of sleep? No need to fear neurodegenerative disorders; daily habits will protect you. Evidence shows even a few changes improve recall, and allow you to remember “why you entered the room.” Happiness & the Brain What if we could train ourselves to be happy? Would you do it? Happy people are more productive, healthy and active. They save more money and have significantly more joy in relationships. Forty years of research on positivity has revealed a path no longer reserved for the lucky. No matter what life event or personality trait, daily actions can take us from ordinary & despair to a state of happiness.
