Healthy Brains, Healthy Emotions
Feeling sad, blue, blah or having lost interest in activities or pleasure in life is not a normal part of aging. Always feeling anxious and worried is also not a normal part of aging. Growing older certainly has its challenges. Living with chronic health conditions can affect the brain and as a result affect ones mood, emotions and memory. Learning how to take care of your brain and obtaining treatment when necessary can significantly improve one’s quality of life.
