As we all know, a new year is the opportunity for new challenges and new habits. We seem to be more open for novel ways of doing things and we feel positive about improving ourselves and our lives. Many of us make resolutions about ”a new, healthier me” in the beginning of the year and therefore we wanted to give you knowledge and insights that could help to actually keep those resolutions.
The guest were welcomed with bubbles, small bites and a delicious soup. Under a friendly and lighthearted atmosphere the first speaker, Rick Bjelk, an experienced physiotherapist talked to us about training and nutrition in the new year. Many interesting points were raised, including that the most common mistake is that people don’t align their goals with their current fitness regime.
Second up to take the stage was Jonathan Bulkeley, who had flown in from New York to share his knowledge on how you can train your brain. Jonathan is the CEO of RealMatch, a leader in online recruitment software in the U.S but also an active investor in the field of neuroscience. The last couple of years he has become a frequent speaker on brain training, mindfulness and meditation. Jonathan gave us some inspiring tips on tools you can use to train the different parts of your brain. By doing simple daily exercises you can improve your memory and emotional abilities for example. For many of us, who can’t remember names of new acquaintances or colleagues or what was on the grocery list we forgot at home, this was very positive news. Jonathan suggested that we should try the app MyBrainSolutions to see how easy it actually is to up the speed of our brain and think more positively.
These presentations opened up for very energetic and hopeful discussions among our guests. We all shared stories and views and got the opportunity to ask questions to the speakers.
All in all, it was a lovely evening to light up the otherwise quite dark January. We all left with new connections and knowledge that will help us make 2017 a great year!
