Center for BrainHealth's 2021 Speaker Series and BrainHealth Project

Learn how you can get in the driver's seat of your own brain's health and performance.


At The Container Store, we are strong believers in the synergy between an organized life and a sharp mind. As such, we have been a longtime supporter of the Center for BrainHealth, one of the most innovative and relevant research centers in the country. Not only are they discovering more each day about the brain's amazing power to change, adapt, grow stronger and last longer--they also translate that science into practical training that people of all ages and circumstances can weave into everyday life. Everyone can be proactive about their brain health. Take advantage of two amazing opportunities from Center for BrainHealth in 2021--they are both online and free of charge!

The Center's enormous initiative "The BrainHealth Project" is about to roll out nationwide, and YOU can be among the first to join! Its goal is to kick-start a global BrainHealth movement, helping people everywhere gain a new understanding of what brain health is AND learn how to adopt brain-healthy strategies for lifelong benefit. It's online, easy to use, and it isn't a big-time commitment…but the impact can be enormous, and you can start accruing the benefits immediately! Best of all, participation for the first two years is entirely free. Learn more and sign up here.
