Going Strong All Month Long

Congrats to everyone participating in the Brain Longevity® Challenge! We have loved seeing you partake in all the brain-boosting activities.

It's not too late to join the Challenge... we still have so much in store. No matter when you register, you'll receive the entire month's resources. We'd love to have you join the next few weeks of mental and physical exercise and spiritual well-being.

This has been such an amazing start to Spring and we are so happy to have you in our community.
Yours in Brain Health,

American Red Cross Retiree Association
Brain Longevity Specialist, Cheryl Kravitz wrote a wonderful article for the American Red Cross Retiree Association, titled, There are ways we can prevent Alzheimer’s. The key is to start. She wrote, "Recent research confirms what we have known for some time now; a wave of the wand is not the answer in fighting Alzheimer’s. Currently, the only effective way to prevent Alzheimer’s, or even slow its progression, is by harnessing the power of an integrative medical approach."
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)
ARPF was delighted to teach OSHA employees the Kirtan Kriya (KK) meditation. There will always be stress in our lives – learning how to cope with it makes all the difference. That's why Stress Management is one of the 4 Pillars of Prevention® and a big part of a healthy work environment. Kirtan Kriya is one of the most effective ways to reduce stress known to science! We are grateful that OSHA was so receptive to learning this meditation and sharing it with its employees. To learn more about KK and stress management, click here.
