“Your mental health is part of your brain health.”

— Jade Crystal


Your brain may not be a muscle, but that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t work it! This week’s episode of the Living Jewishly Podcasts is an instalment of What’s In Your Toolbox?, a podcast about mental health and the tools that help us to cope and heal. In this episode, host Bobby K sits down with Jade Crystal, the Program Director at Brainable for the Women's Brain Health Initiative. Through the Brainable program, students in grades 5-8 are taught how to keep their brains healthy and lower their risk of developing degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s.


Listen now to learn more about the importance of protecting your brain as you age, and the six pillars of brain health that will help you to stay alert, healthy, and happy. You’ll discover powerful tools that will benefit both your brain health and your mental health, from game nights to belly breathing to bedtime routines! 


This is the first episode of Season 2 of What’s in Your Toolbox?. This podcast feed features a rich roster of podcasts produced by Living Jewishly — subscribe now to never miss an episode.
