Dear friend

 

 

I don’t remember my parents talking about brain health but these days it is a topic that frequently comes up in the media, with health professionals and among friends in conversation. We all want to keep our physical and mental health for as long as we can.

 

This week I downloaded the app for the Resilient Minds study which was mentioned in last week's Hub e-news. 

 

The Hub offers the opportunity to learn new skills as well as make new friends and I love learning new things. Last week I was offered the chance to learn Mah Jong. As I am keen to go on Monday’s walks I have not been able to join the group that plays Mah Jong - now I have begun to learn. It occurred to me that Mah Jong may have been the subject of studies on cognitive health and sure enough, I found studies in the medical literature.

 

When we fell in love with Argentinian tango music my husband and I took up dancing tango. After over 20 years we still dance at least twice a week - sometimes much more. When we began to dance tango we had no idea that it would be found in numerous studies to improve the level of physical fitness, keep the mind alert and improve balance. It has certainly added to our general fitness.

 

We don’t have Argentine tango in the Hub (and I have no plans to suggest we do) but we do have Mah Jong as part of the Games Day. The next meeting is on Monday 4th (see below).

 

Plus there are vacancies in the Drawing Class. If you are interested in this group see more details below. 

 

On the social side don’t forget to mark your diaries for the Afternoon Tea on March 19 and if you are worried about computer scams don’t miss the Speaker on March 12. Details of these are below.

 

For those who have asked me about Argentine Tango here is a video taken some years ago of a Tango Flashmob I organised in Sydney - you may recognise one of the dancers! 

 

Hope to catch you at a Hub activity soon
