BRAIN HEALTH - A Healthy Mind in a Healthy Body
Our brain controls everything that goes on in our body and our mind. It looks after our immune system, our mental health, memory and our emotional well-being.
Our brain needs a regular supply of energy in order to function correctly. More than 20% of our energy consumption is used to fuel our brain. The brain gets its energy and refreshment from food, water and sleep.
When we try to have our energy needs met by sugar, caffeine, energy drinks, junk food, alcohol or drugs, our brain does not function well and we are more likely to experience physical and mental illnesses. Our thinking becomes distorted, we are unable to retain information and we are more susceptible to diseases.
Healthy food and drink choices and implementing a sleep routine improve thinking, learning ability, emotional well-being and behaviour. The resulting mental and emotional resilience also enables better stress and trauma coping ability. Basic brain health boundaries around food, water and sleep need to be established early in life. Brain health education is greatly improving children's confidence, learning outcomes and social behaviour.
Brain Health is without a doubt, the most important aspect of any child's social and cognitive development.
We firmly believe that poor brain health and our inclination towards quick energy boosting solutions are the root of many of the issues affecting our community health and social dysfunction. Addressing brain health will bring about major improvements in mental health, heart disease, diabetes, obesity, depression, anxiety, suicide, family violence and addictions.
To assist in the implemention of community brain health, we produce a variety of age relevant educational and interactive training programs. These are designed to be presented by your own educators or by ourselves in person. We can also deliver the programs via desktop meetings or as webinars.
Our programs are endorsed by The Deputy Prime Minister of Australia, The Queensland Health Minister, Local Government, Community and Mental Health Sectors, Education, Youth Development and Employment Services.
Our FREE training materials are being used by tens of thousands of people in more than 150 countries. New programs and resources are being developed regularly as distribution platforms evolve.
