THE AMAZING BRAIN: A WORK IN PROGRESS
Offered to primary, middle- and high-school students and parents in schools around the world, this workshop combines two presentations, one designed with students in mind, the other for parents. Organized around several Peak Performance brain tips, the presentation provides an “operator’s manual” for what science refers to as the most complex three pounds of matter in the known universe.
Topics include: the basic architecture of the brain, the importance of diet and hydration, exercise and sleep; the role of downtime and movement in augmenting learning; the worrying damage that can be caused by binge drinking and other drug abuse; good stress, bad stress, and much more. These companion presentations accompany the staff presentations and serve to spread the “news you can use” about the amazing brain throughout the school-community. Inclusion of mindfulness practice for different age groups will also be addressed.
