About the Train the Brain Campaign:
Train the Brain, Palm Health Foundation’s “Better Health Campaign,” takes place between October 1st and October 31st, 2018. The goal of Train the Brain is to change the conversation around brain health by helping Palm Beach County residents understand that taking care of the brain is just as important as taking care of the body. The campaign empowers residents to take charge of their brain health. Participants are invited to take a pledge to “train their brains” to make changes in their thinking, integrate self-care behaviors into their daily routines and show compassion to individuals with acute and persistent mental health conditions.
Improved brain health leads to better health overall. Our brains can’t do pushups or run laps, but we can train our brains to minimize the harmful effects of stress and achieve balance in our lives. It’s important to learn how to feed, nurture and strengthen our brains while also eliminating activities that can cause the brain stress and ultimately lead to chronic health issues.
