DESPITE it being a freezing cold Saturday evening, a full house greeted clinical psychologist Kate Pearlman-Shaw, guest speaker at the Etz Chaim annual melava malka and David Shiffer Memorial lecture.
She spoke on how to have a good day: using insights from neuroscience to help each day go well.
Ms Pearlman-Shaw described a range of proven methods to help people’s brains work harder, clearer and less reactively.
These methods included taking regular breaks, moving around more and protecting our good quality sleep by cutting back on caffeine and avoiding LED lights in the two hours before bed.
Guests of honour were Judy and Howard Lethbridge.
The meal was prepared by the Social and Cultural committee.
