The Perfect Activity for Life Balance, Brain Health and Memory Fitness

This past weekend, I had a lot of fun interacting with a group of seniors at Temple Beth Am in Parsippany, NJ to talk about juggling and balancing life AND teach them a physical activity that can help improve both mental and physical health. Many of the participants are retired and busier than ever – juggling activities, passion projects, families, and grandchildren.

Over and over again, I see juggling help to improve focus and concentration. Studies have shown that the process of learning to juggle increases gray and white matter in the brain…and that our brains stay big when we keep practicing! Staying physically and mentally fit as we age can help prevent memory loss.

The participants were open and enthusiastic. One even noted the positive side of dropping the ball: it was good exercise to bend down and pick it up! The group really connected to the juggling metaphor and embraced principles of practice that can make us more effective “life jugglers”.

Thank you Sally Glick for this testimonial!…
