On 21, Mar 2017 | In Yoga & Mindfulness | By Henrietta Greene

January starts with a bang but soon becomes a drag. And then February – a month of nothingness. Not the new year, and not yet close enough to March to warrant walks in the brighter air with a lighter heart.

Three postures to loosen, lengthen and let go!

On 22, Nov 2016 | In Yoga & Mindfulness | By Henrietta Greene

Sitting at a desk all day can wreak havoc on the body. The human skeleton, with its 206 bones, and 112 joints that facilitate movement of this structure, is literally designed to move. However finding the time, and perhaps more crucially, the energy to move more can be difficult. Start off slowly, aiming to add 10-15 minutes of extra movement into your day, throughout the week and weekend, and you may find that your energy levels start to improve. Increase the duration of your activity as you start to feel the benefit of using your body how it’s been designed to be used!!

Join Cubex for a healthy Macmillan Coffee Morning

On 20, Sep 2016 | In News | By Cubex Concierge

At Cubex we are planning on keeping the energy of summer alive during September and aim to spend the remainder of the year feeling healthy both physically and cognitively and we would like to inspire you to do so too.

We kick of the Autumn by participating in the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning and hosting another event in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support and in memory of those nearest and dearest to all of us who have lost their battles with cancer, including Lorna Frost (Cubex Audiologist) and Gloria Shulberg.

A coffee morning with a twist

As usual, we turn coffee morning on its head and invite you to join us for the evening instead and have opted for a more nourishing and healthier take on cakes and biscuits which are gluten free, sugar free, low fat and very high in antioxidants.  So join us for the world’s biggest coffee morning in support of Macmillan and to see how easy it is to cook and eat healthily so that you can stay active and participate throughout the day with lots of cognitive energy.

On 14, Sep 2016 | In Yoga & Mindfulness | By Jerusha Shulberg

Yoga can benefit your brain and body in unique ways. There is a wealth of evidence that suggests that regular yoga practice can influence cognitive function, gene expression and immune response.

We caught up with London-based teacher, Global Yogi, meditator and lifestyle consultant, Michael James Wong who talks to us about who can benefit from yoga. Michael is recognised as a leading voice in the modern yoga movement around the world. His approach to the practice brings a strong anatomical focus and mindful approach to the movement, while aiming to teach traditional yoga concepts with a modern day attitude. Michael is also the Founder of BOYS OF YOGA , a global movement celebrated worldwide helping to bring more men to the mat and smashing the stereotypes and misconceptions of men who yoga which you can read more about in this post.

Video: hearing aids help to keep your brain fit

On 29, Jun 2016 | In Professional News | By Jerusha Shulberg

The Eriksholm Research Centre have shared this short but interesting video featuring Professor Hélène Amieva, a leading researcher in the Neuropsychology and Epidemiology of Aging at the University of Bordeaux, France, who discusses her 25 year study that shows that hearing aids reduce the risk of cognitive decline in older adults. It is well documented that untreated hearing conditions can lead to an increase in anxiety, stress, depression, poorer communication and eventual isolation. Hearing aids used as part of a individualised treatment plan can help to manage the negative effects of hearing loss and reduce accelerated cognitive decline!

Three easy ways to revitalise a weary brain, by Henrietta Greene.

On 28, Jun 2016 | In Yoga & Mindfulness | By Henrietta Greene

Do you ever feel mentally exhausted, unable to think clearly or productively, be it at the start, during or at the end of the day?

 
Leaving aside the torrent of politics recently thrown our way, our brains take as much of a battering as our bodies do – there is the work environment and the working day, which now stretches far longer than in times past; then there is the ‘non-work’ environment, be that social or personal responsibilities that further demand planning, consideration and decisions; and on top of both of these aspects of our lives, there is the constant and unending sensory bombardment from marketing, advertisements and social media – all of it vying for your attention, grappling to make you engage, consume, digest.

How, then, to keep our brains refreshed and focussed? Read on for three simple changes you could make to leave you feeling that little bit more energised and empowered.
