ABOUT THE FILM: Grow Younger, Live Longer – The Mental and Physical Relationship
Grow Younger, Live Longer is the bestselling wellness program from world-acclaimed author and physician, Dr. Deepak Chopra. Together with Dr. David Simon, his colleague at the Chopra Center, Deepak Chopra will teach you how to take control of your mental, physical and spiritual well-being and add years to your life. Grow Younger, Live Longer is based on very simple steps that allows a person to have more control toward a healthy and positive lifestyle. Participants will explore the inner relationship between the mind (mental) and the body (physical). How we think affects what we do; and what we do affects how we think.
Participants will learn 3 simple breathing techniques that can be easily used to improve your overall quality of life. One breathing technique increases mental and physical stamina, the second breathing technique helps reduce stress and the third helps a person fall asleep more easily. All of Dr. Chopra’s scientific based practices are described in laymen’s terms which are easy to understand and easy to implement into one’s daily schedule.
