It can be easy to see retirement as the time to finally relax, the time to put your feet up. But if you don't keep your brain active it can have a detrimental effect on your physical, social and mental health and the Brain Collective in Harrogate wants to help by 'future proofing' your brain.

The Brain Collective offers a wide range of neurotherapy which can help people with a range of issues - anxiety, autism, insomnia, epilepsy, Parkinson's, Alzheimers and ADHD just to name a few - but today we're talking about the importance of staying active during retirement. 

Reading, golf or learning a new skill can seem like stereotypical things to do during retirement, but they actually have a really important role to play. Maintaining good brain health always relies heavily on a healthy diet, exercise and good sleep hygiene and it goes without saying that without these three fundamentals your brain could be seriously at risk, but new skills, a varied social life and some simple brain exercises can do a huge amount of good. 

The Brain Collective offer brain mapping which will allow the team to learn more about your brain, check for any early signs of dementia and provide personalised advice on how you can continue to stay fit and healthy throughout retirement.

You can arrange to talk to Melanie, Maria or Paula here.

Patrick Dunlop went to talk to Melanie Adeley and Paula Conroy  at the Brain Collective in Harrogate about keeping your brain healthy during retirement.
