EOCF: Enhancing Own Cognitive Fitness

EOCF: Enhancing Own Cognitive Fitness 

In the 21st century, learning faster and using your brain more effectively may be the most important advantage for success and prosperity. 

We all take our brains for granted and don’t really take time to nourish and exercise it.  What would your life be like if your brain did not work or slowed down? We all know that when we do physical exercise and eat a balanced and nutritious diet, we feel better and are healthier.  How many people (including yourself) ever say…..I’m off to exercise my brain? Well, you should be doing it daily. Most of us just feel like our brains are just another organ and do not really need our attention until you felt that your brain is not working properly. We need to keep our brains fit and healthy in order for it to function as it’s supposed to If you don’t, then the rest of your body is going to feel it. Remember our brains are the master control center of bodies and sends and receives messages allowing us to function. 

Cognitive fitness goes far beyond memory. It embraces thinking, learning, recognition, communication, and sound decision-making. This course will show you how to sidestep threats to your brain’s wellness. Cognitive flexibility refers to the brain’s ability to transition from thinking about one concept to another.  The quicker you are able to switch or “shift” your thinking from one dimension (e.g. color of an object) to another (e.g. shape of an object), the greater your level of cognitive flexibility. You’ll learn how to build a “cognitive reserve” to address your brain’s changes. You will be informed of the steps that spur and protect cognitive fitness. It includes and integrates proven approaches like optimal nutrition, exercise, stress reduction, social interaction, sleep, and stimulating activities.
