In this talk Helen and Ellie will discuss about age related and non-age-related memory loss and how to boost our memory. We will also introduce sense of self and discuss how important it is for our health and wellbeing and how using mindfulness and present moment awareness of nature can help to preserve and maintain a sense of self and well-being in older age. We will also share few tips on how we might enhance sense of self including walks in the parks.
