Graceful, Cheerful and Efficient Ageing
Many of the problems that we experience as we age are, quite simply, associated with bad habits. There are, of course, neurophysiological factors that decline as we age: our bodies wear down, we have less energy, there is less plasticity in our brain and we are more vulnerable to certain kinds of maladies. However, even considering these inevitable age-related declines, poor habit patterns can markedly exacerbate and accelerate these problematic conditions. Neurotherapists who do not attend to these poor habit patterns are likely to have many clients with less than ideal therapy outcomes. By attending to issues such as diet, sleep hygiene, activity levels, socializing, and engaging in purposeful and meaningful activities clients can markedly enrich the quality of the later the years of their lives.
