Stop worrying and start living
by Georgia Remond
As we age, we start taking note of the things we need to do to stay strong and healthy. Our brain, like our body, needs attention and care. Although it is one of the smallest organs, it uses up to 50% of all oxygen intake and 20% of the blood circulating through the system.
Stress and worrying   are two factors that can negatively affect the entire nervous system but that we have some control over. Usually worry is a self-imposed mental distress created by negative concerns over something impending or anticipated. Whatever the situation, our worry is not about the real but about the possible things that may happen.
There are several easy and effective ways to keep your brain active and as worry free as ­possible.
• Take 10 slow and deep breaths every day
• Stop smoking and limit your caffein intake
• Get a regular dose of sunshine each day
• Meditation, yoga and stretching are all calming
• Line dancing is great for exercise and pattern recognition for memory recall.
• Enjoy board games, crossword puzzles, Sudoku, card games, cribbage or mahjong
• Remain curious and open to new ideas
A free seminar on Flexing the Mental Muscle with Georgia Remond will take place at St. Patrick Square Residence, 6767 Cote-Saint-Luc, on Wednesday April 11, at 1 pm. Info: (514) 481-9609
Georgia Remond is a trainer and certified licensed Whole brain Practitioner
