DNA, Stress, Telomeres & CLD
3-Credit | 45 Hours
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!

“You said this during class and it really stuck with me because I am FINALLY learning in this past year or so that: “I am worth staying charged”. I was taught as a kid to feel guilty for resting, for taking time for me. I was also taught that working super hard is where we get our value – unfortunately through our deeds, not our beautiful existence. As I drove home yesterday and was going to cancel my workout because I needed to do xyz other thing, I immediately told myself that I’m worth it. That it’s okay to take 30 minutes, feel better/stronger/happier and THEN get things accomplished.”
“Your classes are always so actionable, packed with takeaways. Thank you for helping to revitalize my energy at the end of a busy school year. Perfect timing!”
“Thanks again for helping me remember that I’m in charge of what makes me happy and how to stay healthy”
