If you plan to live a long time, you want to make sure you stay sharp. With ever-present smartphones, we are overwhelmed by input while doing less of our own heavy cognitive lifting. Our brains are losing their edge! Neuroscience shows that the brain is resilient, growth-oriented, and adaptive to change. You can actually learn ways to leverage your brain to a higher level of functioning. In this class, explore habits and mindsets that impact the health of your brain. Learn easy to implement strategies to foster memory and cognition skills. Using evidence-based strategies in neuroscience, learning theory, mindfulness, and improvisation, we will practice a variety of techniques to sharpen your mind and discuss lifestyle factors that positively influence recall and overall brain function. Heather Curran is an educator, performer, and certified mindfulness teacher who works with groups of all ages. She is a teaching artist with the Denver Center for the Performing Arts and a volunteer with the Global Play Brigade. NOTE: This course will be offered via Zoom.
