Jessie, thank you for the course. It has made me feel so much better about myself and have “exercises” to maintain my self-confidence.
I have been fairly sure I was keeping up with “aging” and memory retention but because I attended Brainfit, I feel encouraged, given tools to improve my memory and Jessie delivers with humour and skills.
As an 80 year old, I have found Jessie’s memory course has definitely improved my powers of observation and I can retain information with much less difficulty.
I enjoyed this course as I mixed with others, learnt what I can and can’t do well and know what I need to practice more. Thank you for your energy in delivering the course, Jessie. I find the book invaluable.
The course has been so enjoyable and it’s with real enthusiasm that I leave each week to test my knowledge. Absolutely inspiring. It’s like eating something delicious and wanting more.
Feel encouraged, very hopeful of improving memory. Stimulated. Had excellent teacher, many wonderful laughs, much to learn.
