Dr Helena Popovic

Most people work on building up and boosting their financial assets.

But how many people work on building up and boosting their greatest asset: their brain?

The emerging field of neuroplasticity has shown that the brain can change its own structure and function. It can grow new cells, new circuits and new connections in response to what we do, think and feel. For the brain to stay healthy and operate at its best, we need the right nutrition, rest, stimulation, challenge and reward.

Most importantly, we need to take charge of our thinking because our thoughts play an integral role in wiring our brains or optimal performance.

Join Dr Helena Popovic to discover how to:

  1. Sharpen your thinking and problem solving
  2. Improve concentration and memory
  3. Reduce your risk of dementia
  4. Perform at your peak on a daily basis
