Course Overview

Anyone can improve their ability to use their brain in different ways. Peter Quarry and Eve Ash explore techniques such as exposing yourself to new ideas and perspectives, changing daily routines and challenging your comfort zone. Studies have shown that our concentration spans – even IQs - are impaired by allowing constant interruption (eg. checking phones). Peter Quarry suggests the “Five More Technique” to keep yourself focused. Mood-boosting short breaks (eg. walks, games) also help concentration. 

Peter Quarry offers tips on improving mental capacity through learning to be open, seeing things differently, spending more time on tasks and mood-boosting breaks.
