Alzheimer's Prevention

Scientific literature informs us that our likelihood of having Alzheimer's is one-third genetic and two-thirds lifestyle choices.

Diet, exercise, and stress reduction are key areas when learning how to prolong your memory for as long as possible. This course exposes you to easy-to-understand techniques to boost your memory and fun ways to reduce stress.

Brain Diet

You'll discover the best diet to follow to boost and maintain your memory. It turns out that if you are eating for heart health you are also eating a healthy brain diet.


Walking for as little as 15 minutes a day can help keep your mind sharp. You'll learn exercises that will boost your brain health.

Stress Reduction

You'll learn how to conduct auto-relaxation exercises ranging from focused exercises to instantaneous relief using the miracle of the half-smile.

Laughter Exercise

Laughter yoga is introduced as a way to ensure exercise, stress reduction, and socialization.
