On today’s show we talk about the senior brain and what you can do to maximise your life when you get to a ‘certain’ age.
It is interesting to consider that probably the BEST thing you can do in terms of lifestyle choices and the health of your brain is to MOVE.
To get some exercise
To move your body
It almost doesn’t matter what kind of movement it is as long as you do move and you enjoy that motion
It may be walking, dancing, aerobics, climbing the choice is yours as long as you make that CHOICE.
On today’s show we have Brian Sparks who wrote the wonderful book ‘Positive Impact Golf’
Brian has for some time now been a champion of the senior golfer.
His YouTube video ‘the easiest swing in golf’ has had thousands of views and you will thank me for letting you know about it when you take the time to have a look.
It is hypnotic in its grace and ease of movement
It is a way to move no matter what age you are.
In this fascinating session Brian shares with us his own discoveries about how to move the senior body more efficiently
We also discuss the vital importance of mindset and how you need to be very careful to not buy into what I call the ‘myths of ageing’
So much of what we do and achieve in our lives is due to how we PERCEIVE the world
When you change your perceptions, when you challenge you concepts you get to write a different story.
It is a wonderful interview that is applicable to ANY age but one that will totally resonate with senior players.
We discuss the immense value of staying active to both mind and body
The importance of setting yourself a challenge
To aim at SOMETHING
Having the courage to challenge the ‘norm’
The ‘social’ factor how it is so very easy to become isolated and the need to get out and spend time both in nature and with other people
The story of a man breaking shooting 79 at the age of 80 and the impact that has had on his life
How having hope is so essential to live life to the fullest
You cannot help but find Brian’s passion for coaching to be infectious
You will pick up on his genuine sincerity to want to improve his students and also a clear understanding of the difference between coaching and teaching.
