One Day University: Aging, Health and Mindset
This One Day University event describes cutting edge research on the power of the mindset on influencing thoughts, feelings and behavior. You'll learn how making subtle tweaks in mindset can lead children to perform better on challenging math tests, college students to show improvements in their vision and older adults to score higher on memory tasks.
You'll also learn about the substantial impact of mindset on physical health. Would you believe that simple shifts in mindset can lead to faster walking speeds, decreases in blood pressure and body fat, and increases in life expectancy?
During the class, you will take the Stress Mindset Measure to learn how you think about stress and how that tendency impacts your physiological stress response. Finally, and most importantly, you'll learn specific and easy strategies for changing your own mindset, which can lead to better psychological and physical well-being.
