Jenny Brockis featured on ABC radio – the BIG interview
Jenny Brockis, Arthur Garvey Speaker of the Year 2010 and member of Club 34, was interviewed by ABC radio presenter James Lush on the Saturday Breakfast Show on 4 February 2012.
Members will recall Jenny’s AGSOY speech on making lifestyle changes to possibly delay the onset of symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease, and her presentation at the 2011 Autumn Convention where she explained how the brain works and how to keep it fit and healthy. Jenny, a medical doctor, has now collated the research and her insights in a new book “Brain Fit! How smarter thinking can save your brain”, which was the subject of the interview.
Jenny’s tips for ‘brain fitness’?
She suggests eating a healthy and nutritious diet, making sure you get enough sleep and physical exercise, maintaining social contacts and a positive attitude to life, challenging yourself mentally with new activities, and avoiding stress.
