Mental Fitness

     Mental fitness is more than the absence of illness, both mental or physical. Just as an engine gets out of tune, so does our brain over time due to various life events and outside stressors.

     We may lose the timing and flexibility to move easily through emotional states, and our brain may not fire as normally as it could resulting in less than functional behaviors. Nonetheless, the brain is a very forgiving organ in so many ways.

     Our society has focused on physical fitness and drug therapy to the exclusion of finding ways to maintain mental fitness in more natural ways. This is not to say that drug therapy is always wrong or bad for us. Many are life maintaining. We are suggesting that there are also other options that we can exercise to diminish the effects of some drugs, one of which is neurofeedback.
