Frequently Asked Questions
Which brain training is best for me?
There are several ways to begin your memory training.
Many people are using our premium online memory course, Memory Tune™. This validated and University-tested training gained outstanding results for people in the trials. It comes to you via email twice a week for seven weeks so you have the opportunity to complete the tasks in your own home and in your own time.Memory Tune™ covers all the vital memory types and gives you the tips and strategies you need as well as showing you clearly how memory works along with plenty of practice to help your memory improve.
“I think the Memory Tune course is brilliant.
The material has been carefully thought through providing a balance of information, stimulation and user friendliness. As I have learned and practiced what I can do to help me remember names, appointments etc., I have found myself with a new general feeling of alertness. ‘Memory Tunes’ is life-enriching!” John B-H.
Memory Tune™ is accompanied by ongoing newsletters, things to do to support good brain and memory health, and online help from Dr Allison Lamont and Gillian Eadie.
Brain Fit For Life™
Brainfit for Life courses is face-to-face training in very convivial workshops where you are personally taught by an Accredited Brain Fit For Life™ Coach. Sessions last for an hour and a half and are held over 5 weeks. This timing has proved very effective because there is time for practice and reflection between sessions.
Follow-up tasks and emails help with motivation. Again there is ongoing support through the newsletters which are always packed with information and memory activities.
There are several centres in New Zealand where Brainfit for Life courses classes are available and we look forward to these courses being available soon in international centres also.
“I am finding it all quite a challenge but wish to tell you that I am absolutely loving it. Doing it together which makes it fun. I feel that you have given me a new lease on life and am finding it hard to get to do much else. You haven’t only given me techniques – you’ve given me hope!” Margaret
What's the difference between Memory Tune™ and the 7-Day Brain Boost Plan?
The glossy paperback book, 7 Day Brain Boost Plan, provides a detailed, step-by-step plan to help readers develop a lifestyle that is conducive to brain health and a strong and healthy memory.
The 14-issue Memory Tune™, is the premium online memory course, not a book. Memory Tune™ is delivered via email and two issues are sent each week. Each takes about one hour to complete. These sessions are full of memory information and tips and strategies that will bring improvement and confidence to memory. This course has been tried and tested in university-based studies and people who have used it have found it very helpful indeed.
How do I fill in the Memory Check form??
The form can like a brain test in itself, I know!
This is a picture of what we are talking about but it is not the actual form!
(You receive that when you begin your Brain Tune™ mini-course.)
When you receive this form with your first session of Brain Tune ™, most of it can be done on the screen;the only adding you need to do yourself is to add the totals across the bottom row.
To make it work for you, here is what you need to do.
1, When you choose the rating (1, 2, 3, 4, or 5) that most applies to your memory performance, you type that number in the column (also titled 1, 2, 3, 4, 5)
2. The columns then total up automatically on the bottom line.
3. Then you add those total across the bottom line to get your score
4. Once you have your score, then you can check out what the score means at https://www.brainfit.world/brain-tune-memory-check-results/
I am happy to talk you through this process over the phone if that is easier for you. Gillian +64 9 528 7393
Let me know via email if you would like me to call you.
Is Memory Tune™ the same as Lumosity?
The Memory Tune™ course is quite a bit different from the tasks you find on Lumosity because Memory Tune™ comprises actual brain training techniques (based on the PhD research of Dr. Allison Lamont.)
If you already do Lumosity games, they are excellent for stimulating your brain. Their tasks are generic for all ages and any activities like this are definitely is worthwhile.
Memory Tune™ however focuses on the particular strategies you need to remember well once the inevitable memory changes occur after the age of 50+. The free mini-course (Brain Tune™) will give you an idea of the difference between Lumosity and Memory Tune™. Have you tried it? If not, get Brain Tune™ here.
We hope you will feel inspired to take your memory strategies to the next level of remembering with the premium course Memory Tune™.
Will Brain Fit for Life™ classes be available in other places?
Brain Fit for Life™ classes are available in Auckland, Whangarei, Pukekohe and Wellington at present. More Brain Fit Coaches are being trained and we hope that an Accredited Coach will be coming to your area soon.
If you are interested in a class where you are or are considering becoming a Brain Fit Coach, call Gillian Eadie +64 9 528 7393 or email her.
