Train Your Brain to Stay Calm with NeuroFit

2022-10-04T15:26:01-05:00

Did you know you can train your brain to develop a skill much in the same way you can train your body to develop a skill? Think back to when you learned how to ride a bike. At first, it probably felt completely foreign to your body. But over time, the more you practiced, your body slowly became used to the feeling of pedaling, keeping your balance, directing the bike, and paying attention to your surroundings. You naturally developed the muscles, coordination, and rhythm needed to stay on the bike. Eventually, it became a habit. It’s actually a very similar process when you are teaching your brain to do something like getting calm, focusing, and regulating your emotions — you have to train it.

Diaphragmatic Breathing

2022-07-26T14:50:27-05:00

Inhale, exhale. Sounds simple, right? If your chest rises and falls with your breath, there’s actually a better way to breathe: with your diaphragm. Diaphragmatic breathing increases how much oxygen gets into your blood, reduces blood pressure and heart rate, helps you relax, and improves muscle function during exercise to prevent injury and strain. Join Ashley Kumar, physical therapist and personal trainer, for an interactive seminar in the Oak Room to learn proper diaphragmatic breathing techniques that you can incorporate into your daily life and workouts.

Increase Your Stability Through the Core Four

2022-03-22T17:10:15-05:00

It’s easy to go through daily life without even thinking about what your body is doing. Going up and down the stairs, doing laundry, picking up your child or grandchild, or even exercising are routine activities that your body becomes used to performing. But it’s often activities like these that can lead to imbalances or even injury if your muscles — particularly your core — aren’t properly engaged and stabilized.

It turns out you CAN teach an old dog new tricks. Not only that, but it’s good for your brain. Remember those piano lessons you took as a kid? Memorizing verb conjugations in Spanish? Volunteering at a food pantry? Believe it or not, revisiting some of those long-lost interests or finding similar ones later in life can actually rewire your brain to become healthier and prevent diseases like Alzheimer’s.

Do you have unexplained symptoms such as hives, dizziness, wheezing, or generalized inflammation? Mast Cell Activation Syndrome (MCAS) could be the reason. In this Lunch and Learn, Dr. Scott Jamison will introduce the emerging topic of MCAS and the role that abnormal mast cell function can play in producing complicated chronic disease states.
