Greenville BPW Club’s Program on ‘Brain Fitness Can Be Fun!'

The Individual Development Program (IDP) Committee of the Greenville Business & Professional Women’s (BPW) Club hosted the November 14th meeting which was held at the Brethren Retirement Center.

IDP Chair Jane Carroll and committee members Leigh Fletcher and Marilyn Emmons planned the meeting. Carmen Milano was the speaker for the evening. Milano is a registered Yoga teacher specializing in gentle, therapeutic classes and private sessions. Her program was entitled “Brain Fitness Can Be Fun”. She advocates whole foods, plenty of sleep, and movement of body. Carmen encouraged everyone to learn something new every day by taking 15 minutes out of our busy days. She talked about stimulating your senses and creating new pathways in your brain. Interact with people you don’t know. Change things up! Look for opportunities to change! Reduce stress by listening to ourselves on what we choose to do…not what we have to do. Milano recommended the book Keep Your Brain Alive to find ways to generate new brain cells. The program was fun, encouraging and engaging.

The Greenville BPW Club’s mission is to achieve equity for all women in the workplace through advocacy, education, and information. The Club holds fund raisers throughout the year to raise money to grant scholarships to the young women of Darke County. The Club meets the second Thursday of every month for a dinner meeting. Those interested in learning more about the club can contact Membership Chair Gail Snyder at 937/423-4854 or gails669@embarqmail.com
