Nutrition and lifestyle strategies for boosting mental function and mood

An evening with Dr John Briffa; practising doctor, wellbeing expert and author

Are you anxious or prone to low mood? Do you suffer brain fog or fuzzy thinking? Do you feel tired, unmotivated and have trouble sleeping? Would you like to know what you can do to reduce your risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease?

If you answered yes to any of the questions above, now is the time to act. This is an introductory talk to the six workshops which make up The Brain Health Programme. You will have the opportunity to find out more about these workshops during the course of the evening. For an introduction to The Brain Health Programme, visit www.thebrainhealthprogramme.co.uk

Throughout this introductory talk, Dr John Briffa will reveal the most important factors which affect brain function and mood. The session will explore a range of important topics including diet, physical activity, stress and sleep. Dr Briffa will discuss relevant research in each area and will translate the theory into practical steps that each one of us can take to optimise our cognitive function and mood, as well as reduce our risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease as we age.
