BRAIN HEALTH & WELLNESS
Let's get started with creating your Brain Health plan! You'll first meet to discuss your goals, your health history, and other details that will help understand how to support your brain health. After a brief assessment of your cognitive skills, you'll learn more about your strengths and cognitive areas that could be better supported in your daily life. You'll receive a personalized report that will include a tailored plan that will help support you "from the neck up"!
Your Personalized Brain Health Plan will include strategies, recommendations, and supportive information to help you learn about and engage in lifestyle habits that are known from research to contribute to brain health. From there, you'll be assisted along the way with accountability and support for making lasting changes that will contribute to your overall brain health and wellness.
The Brain Health Plan includes empirically based recommendations in the areas of physical fitness, diet and nutrition, sleep quality, stress reduction, and strategies designed to support and improve your cognition in your personal and work life.
