Demystify the magic of meditation by understanding why it's so effective and then discover a wide variety of different styles and techniques, tools to enhance your practice, and tips to finally make consistent meditation part of your daily routine.
In The Sharp Solution, Dr. Heidi Hanna discusses a brain-based approach to realistic, sustainable energy management that supports a healthier brain, and as a result a healthier, happier body. By engaging the brain, we can strategically re-wire how we operate, creating more energy and improving productivity while simultaneously reducing stress. As a result, we become more focused and productive, flexible and resilient, and able to sustain higher levels of health and performance over time. These critical aspects of "cognitive fitness"—mental strength, flexibility, and endurance—allow us to function at our best and enjoy life to the fullest.
There's no way of getting around the blunt fact that work usually generates mental stress, and a stressed-out brain performs at progressively lower levels. Too much stress is without question the number-one killer of both efficiency and creativity. This is why it's vital to learn specific ways to regularly shift your focus of attention out of stress mode and into rest mode at work, thereby giving your chronically deep-fried synapses at least a few "time-out" moments during the day to regroup, recover, and recharge. This session will take you through the simple process of recharging your brain for optimal health, happiness, and performance. Participants will receive a free copy of The Brain Recharge e-Book and an invitation to attend the first 21-day Recharge Challenge beginning in February, 2013.
