Advances in neuroscience have revealed fascinating details about how our brains work. Researchers reveal that we can use our thoughts to change our feelings in a way that moves us toward happiness and good health. Studies show that at least 75% of mental and physical illness comes as a result of negative thinking and stress. To compound the problem, chronic stress causes extreme damage to your brain over time.
In this workshop, you will learn how social interaction, laughter, and good attitudes positively impacts your brain function. You will also learn how physical exercise engages your brain’s “feel good” centers, releases “happy-making” chemicals, and increases your anabolic energy!
The activities recommended in this workshop can help you to change the way your brain works. By changing your mindset, you are able to change your life for the better…not just for today, but for years to come!
