Your muscles aren’t the only things that need a regular workout.

Healthy aging is important for everyone, and it is essential not to forget the health of your brain as well, says the non-profit Alzheimer Society of B.C.

The Society brings its free “Heads Up! An Introduction to Brain Health” workshop to Kelowna on Friday, January 29, offering strategies for actively engaging in protecting and maintaining the brain.

Participants will learn how to set goals for improving the health of their mind, body and spirit.
