11 Oct Bringing psychology to the community in Mental Health Week 2016.
Rob Curtis, Educational & Developmental Psychologist workshopped with 22 residents from Halliday Shores Retirement Village on Tuesday 11th October on the topic of Healthy Ageing
Healthy ageing is more than the absence of mental illness. It is about flourishing in life, promoting wellbeing and creating a satisfying life filled with meaning, pleasure, engagement, positive relationships and accomplishments.
Rob outlined what is normal ageing, stepping residents through Martin Seligman’s 7 habits of happy people and what the research is telling us about how we can lower the risk of dementia through activity; learning; watching our weight; and diet to ensure we head off diabetes; and control any high blood pressure.
