Brain Fitness Workshops
Brain Fitness Workshop with Karen Janusz March 30, 2018, at 1:30 pm.
Have Fun While Increasing Mental Muscle!
This innovative workshop will give you an opportunity to explore and exercise your magnificent brain. We now know that the adult brain retains the characteristic of plasticity, which is its capacity to specialize and grow. With this knowledge, we can slow down the degenerative cognitive loss that is commonly associated with aging.
During this workshop, we will incorporate exercises that activate the functions of the brain. This process increases neurogenesis (the ability to increase brain cells, and dendrites), thereby improving memory. Feel free to register and join us in learning more about:
- The role that stress plays in brain health
- Exercises that can increase brain power
- Aromatherapy and its effects on the brain
- The importance of nutrition for brain health
- Important facts about improving our brains overall fitness

Here are some key bits of information about the Brain Fitness with Aromatherapy lecture.
The olfactory nerves are only 3 inches from the brain.
The nerve fibers from the nose and its aroma detectors run directly to your brain’s limbic area which is associated with emotional response.
The nostrils have been referred to as “ brain cells outside the brain”.
Scents and aromas pass directly from your nose across the blood-brain barrier without any interference. This is why smells and aromas can so instantly affect your mind and feelings, triggering joy or disgust or deep memory
