DNA, Stress, Telomeres & CLD
3-Credit | 6-Hours of Lecture + Additional Application
This class is a user-friendly guide to best-practices to boost cognition and to heal the brain. You will learn how life effects function, how to boost health, memory and learning. Even minor stress can change our behaviors, personality, and immune system radically. The good news is there are things you can do to lower that cortisol so can get back to your best self. Compelling evidence shows certain things stop the damage and actually repair damage within days. Things like music, water, play, fasting, foods you choose, even the darkness of your bedroom seem to work miracles. This is my FAVORITE presentation because over time people report back that their migraines stopped, they lost weight, improved their marriage, and no longer need to retire!
The strategies explain and alleviate effects of stress on our mind and body, improve productivity, self-reported happiness, and achievement! You’ll leave with 30 research-based behaviors shown to increase your brain’s ability to learn, be successful and improve health. This is my FAVORITE class, if you only take one? Take this one!
Additional Application: Examples of various strategies and activities will be provided for you to choose from.

“After taking Kim’s Essentials for Learning class not only am I a more effective teacher, but I’ve lost 11 pounds, my migraines have stopped, and I sleep better at night! I look at myself and my students in a totally different light. Because I have a deeper understanding of how our brains work, I’m now able to create positive change within them! Although it’s brain science, Kim makes it simple. Best class I’ve ever taken.” -Maria G., Educator
“I came expecting to do a lot of movement and get technical information about the brain. I expected to get through it and not really enjoy it. I got… an experience where I hung on every word like I’ve never done in a class in my life and found I actually enjoyed the movement.”
“This class answered my prayers on how to reduce stress.” -Barbra S.
