LOVE YOUR BRAIN!

For Women in the Wisdom Years

Who want to Save their Brains

Without Losing their Minds!

While we might not like to admit it–it’s often not a lot of fun getting older. 

Are you:

  • Starting to develop aches and pains in various parts of your body?
  • Realizing that you no longer have the energy to participate in your favourite activities?
  • Thinking that a life full of health, vitality, energy, adventure, and connection is starting to fade away?
  • Worried that your family history of “diseases of the aging” have doomed you to the same fate?
  • Starting to develop more serious chronic illnesses?
  • Starting to see evidence of cognitive decline like brain fog, faulty memory, and losing your words?
  • And has this led to having worries about developing dementia, especially Alzheimer’s?

The good news is that many of the negative stereotypes and dogmatic beliefs about aging are proving to be false, or at least not what applies to everyone.  

New research is showing that we are not doomed by our genes, and they don't control our biology or determine the person we can be. 

On the contrary, recent studies reveal that individual nutrition, lifestyle, environment, attitude, and the friends we interact with play a far greater role than genetics in determining how well we age and who thrives in later life.

And while we often think of the body and mind as being separate, what affects one, affects the other.  In fact, it’s now becoming clear that physiologically, there is no separation between the two, and so developing practices to help with a physical issue may also help support our brains!

 

WANT TO KNOW MORE RIGHT NOW?

As we enter and enjoy the Wisdom Years, and as we feel our bodies and minds starting to exhibit some of the worrisome characteristics of aging, we start to pay more attention to ways we can stop this downhill slide!

And one of the Key Principles to putting on the brakes of this slide is to Eat Natural, Whole Foods that are rich in the many nutrients that will help our minds and bodies stay healthy — and in some cases even turn back the clock!!

Let’s face it, as we age we really have only 2 choices:  

(1) Buy into the current “model” that says we will inevitably decline at an ever increasing rate until we’ve lost independence, mobility, energy, our minds, and so on – everything that makes us who we are! 

Or

(2) Refuse to accept that choice #1 is inevitable, and instead do everything we possibly can to avoid that scenario!  

No surprise, I choose #2 – are you with me?

But wait a minute - we all know what we are supposed to be doing!

We’ve all tried (many times) before, and nothing seems to stick.

What will be different this time?

And how do we make those healthy habits stick?

We’ve all set those ambitious New Year’s resolutions (lose weight, get to the gym, etc., etc.), only to have them fall away after a few weeks, or even days!  

Why is that?  

Because those resolutions often come from what we think we should be doing.

And it turns out that simply trying to think a new habit into existence, using only the logical side of our brain, and using willpower to drive our behaviour, isn't nearly enough.

Choosing a new habit to develop will be more successful if it’s something we deeply know to be important and valuable to our life.  

And how do we gain that deeper knowing?  

By listening to the wisdom of the body!

Research shows that developing practices such as mindfulness, meditation, self-care and healthy choices will go a long way to support a transition to a new you – less stressed, more resilient, better able to thrive in this ever-changing world.

We’ve all had moments where we’ve felt the wisdom of the body, whether gut feelings, or a knowing in the heart.  And we’ve often recognized that these feelings are in opposition to the logical messages from your head!

Which part of you is right?  Which part of you knows the “truth”?

Listen to Your Inner Wisdom

Research shows that developing practices such as mindfulness, meditation, self-care and healthy choices will go a long way to support a transition to a new you – less stressed, more resilient, better able to thrive in this ever-changing world.

Discover your “Why”!

In other words, ask your body what matters.  Ask who you are, and who do you want to become.  Get in touch with who you really are.  

Choosing a new habit to develop will be more successful if it’s something we deeply know to be important and valuable to our life.  

Create your True Identity 

It also turns out that your current behaviours are simply a reflection of your current identity. To change your behaviour for good, you need to start believing new things about yourself.  You need to build identity-based habits.

James Clear, author of Atomic Habits, advises us to start small!  

Start by picking a habit that doesn’t need a lot of motivation.  He states that 

“Rather than trying to do something amazing from the beginning, start small and gradually improve. Along the way, your willpower and motivation will increase, which will make it easier to stick to your habit for good.”

"The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result."

We’ve all heard this quote attributed to Albert Einstein.

So let me ask you this:

If you are unhappy with the direction that the health of your brain, and your body, are headed, 

  1. Will you continue on in that same direction, and in the belief that “you are just getting old” and that this decline is inevitable?
  2. Or will you TAKE ACTION NOW!  And make the sustainable changes that “turn back time” and Save your Brain without Losing your Mind?

About Peg

I have been teaching, coaching, mentoring, counselling and facilitating growth and change in others since I taught my first Learn-to-Swim class at the age of 17. 

I like nothing better than to share my passions with others, and what could be more important as we age than the health of our brains and bodies? 

I hope you are as excited as I am with the knowledge that we don’t have to “give in” to the decline in our health, and in our cognitive capacities.  

That there are steps we can take NOW that will literally change our life!  

That we can choose to “Love Our Brains!” and this will have us looking ahead with clarity, optimism and hope!
