SKU: The Twinkle in my Wrinkle Categories: ,

The twinkle in my wrinkle is an inspirational guide book filled with anecdotes on how to age gracefully with positivity, energising activities, exercises and Mind Moves®. The book is filled with photos of ageing people enthusiastically demonstrating the well-known Mind Moves exercises which are superb for enhancing quality of life – no matter the circumstances.

 

The twinkle in my wrinkle is written in a light conversational tone whilst addressing common challenges associated with ageing, for example:

  • Adapting to change (moving house, knee- and hip replacements, dealing with the loss of a life partner, being dependant on others, etc.)
  • negativity
  • depression
  • bad eating habits
  • decreasing energy levels
  • memory loss
  • fearing the fall
  • children and grandchildren with differing priorities and lifestyles
  • dealing with feelings of worthlessness.

 

Included in the book is a poster with Mind Moves exercises grouped together to address the above-mentioned challenges, one after the other.

 

About the author: Dr Melodie de Jager is a qualified preschool teacher with a PhD on the role of the body and how easy-to-do exercises develop the brain (and lifelong learning). She was inspired to write The twinkle in my wrinkle as her mother reached her 80’s and she understood that ones ability to learn, adapt, and excel (whether it be physically, behaviorally, or academically) all require the same fundamental brain wiring. Due to the popularity of her programs BabyGym, Mind Moves and Mind Dynamix, a need for a similar program- which would specifically address the needs of senior citizens arose- and so the book was published and the Senior Mind Moves Institute founded, in 2012.
