Of course, we don’t just eat because we are hungry – being bored, upset, and the sight or smell of food can all cause us to eat, sometimes hijacking our good intentions and causing us to make poor food choices or to overeat. The Brain Health Programme will start you on the journey towards understanding and changing your relationship with food, with the goal of helping you make long-term, sustainable behaviour changes.
Why should I attend?
If you are concerned about your risk of cognitive decline now or in the future
Perhaps because you have experienced brain fog, poor memory, anxiety, low mood, stress or a reduction in your ability to concentrate
Maybe you have a family member that has been diagnosed with dementia
Whilst Alzheimer’s and dementia may be diagnosed in our 70s or 80s, the processes that ultimately result in dementia begin much earlier – in our 30s, 40s, 50s, and 60s
If you are concerned about risk of brain decline now or in the future and if you want to stay brain sharp now
