Your brain is a muscle. And like all muscles, you can train it to become better and stronger.
If you want to reach your full intellectual potential, you have to go out of your way and make lifestyle changes that can improve your intellectual health. These habits can also prevent brain atrophy. Don’t worry, these changes are very minor and it’s possible to commit to them no matter what your age.
Here are five healthy habits that will help increase your brain power:
Having a positive attitude can help you be more productive and achieve more things. When you are thinking negatively, you are so focused on one idea. On the other hand, positive thinking allows you to see other options and expand your understanding. It forces you to think of a solution instead of just giving up.
There are a lot of food ingredients that can help you function better. You just have to be more conscious of adding them to your meals and making them a regular part of your diet. Omega-3 oils found in fish are very good for the brain. Vegetables and protein are good too.
In recent years, more and more people are starting to see the value of mindfulness and meditation. These practices are known to have numerous benefits for the physical, mental, and emotional health. Meditation doesn’t even have to take up a lot of your time. Just five minutes a day can make a huge difference. However, it is important to learn how to breathe properly and how to quiet your distracting thoughts too.
Learning something new is like exercise for your brain. It doesn’t matter if you actually enroll in a class or you try to learn everything by yourself. The important thing is to find something that you are genuinely interested in learning, and devote time, effort, and resources to expand your knowledge.
Sleep is not an off button for your body. In fact, there are a lot of things happening in your brain even as you sleep. This is the time when you consolidate what you learned and make sense out of what you experienced. Quality sleep is one of the essential ingredients of a healthier brain.
