Common Health representative Amy Moore spoke to Manassas Campus employees about “Brain Health” on October 31. They had healthy brain foods that consisted of nuts, blueberries, dark chocolate, veggies and water. Moore discussed ways to keep the brain healthy in five easy steps. First, learning new activities to stimulate growth in our brain. Second, staying active by moving our body for at least 30 minutes a day or 150 minutes a week and include strength training to help build our bones and slow muscle loss. Third, staying connected with people helps us retain our memories and keep our mind sharp. Fourth, eating well to keep your brain healthy with nuts, blueberries, fish, beans and whole grains. Finally, learning about how concussions can affect your brain.
Special thanks to Jenni Barlet and Cindy Klink, Manassas Enrollment and Administration, for organizing this presentation.
