Dr. John Randolph: The Brain Health Book
In the cold, dark winter months, we could all use a little exercise for our minds - right? Dr. John Randolph, author of The Brain Health Book, will be joining us in Woodstock with some tips and tricks for boosting brain function. He will also be talking about his new book. which is filled with easy-to-understand science-based strategies to maximize your brain's potential.
About the Book: Concerns about memory and other thinking skills are common, particularly in middle age and beyond. Due to worries about declining brain health, some seek out dubious products or supplements purportedly designed to improve memory and other cognitive abilities. Fortunately, scientific research has uncovered a clear- cut set of evidence- based activities and lifestyle choices that are inexpensive or free and known to promote brain and cognitive functioning.
John Randolph translates this science in an engaging and accessible way, including the brain- boosting effects of exercise, social activity, mental stimulation, task management strategies, nutrition, and positive self-care. Interwoven with lessons from neuroscience, positive psychology, social and clinical psychology, and habit formation research are powerful self- coaching exercises designed to help the reader incorporate lifestyle changes that promote brain health.
