“We're entering an era of an epidemic of overwhelm. A time when too many people's mental well-being is being stretched through multi-tasking, fragmented attention and information overload.” Dr. David Rock and Dr. Daniel Siegel recommend the Healthy Mind Platter, equivalent to the USDA Choose My Plate, to help us create a daily diet for the mind.

The brain is capable of changing throughout our lifespan- called neuroplasticity. Siegel and Rock propose that the brain requires “essential nutrients” to work optimally just like our body requires certain nutrients from food for healthy functioning. 

In this course you’ll learn the “mental nutrients” and ways to incorporate them into your day. By engaging every day in each of these servings, you promote balance in your life and enjoy more vitality in everything you do.

Learning Objectives
  • Identify the 7 Essential Mental Nutrients
  • Discover the physical and mental benefits of each nutrient
  • Identify which nutrients are lacking in your Life
  • Explore ways to incorporate each nutrient daily
