Your mental health plays a huge role when it comes to things like managing stress effectively, maintaining a healthy weight, having loving relationships, being good at your job and being an amazing parent.

If you are not taking care of your head these areas of your life begin to get difficult. Stress can show up in the body in the form of an injury or disease, relationships are strained, your work suffers and you begin to have trouble finding joy in life itself.

This is why it is so important to keep your brain nourished and your monkey mind tamed. How? By increasing awareness, becoming more present and cultivating a variety of healthy habits.

Your brain needs time to rest and process. It also needs tasks to be simple and clear so it doesn’t get overwhelmed. Your brain makes hundreds of decisions every day that affect your quality of life. When you can adopt healthy habits, good decisions become automatic. The more you automate the more your brain is freed up to be create and experience joy.

In this workshop we will explore some of the healthy habits and basic tools you can use to keep your brain healthy and running at its fullest potential.

You will learn:

  • How to tap into your creativity.

  • How to retain what you learn.

  • How to experience more joy in your life.
