A strong remembrance depends on the health and vitality of your mind. Whether you’re a student learning for final exams, a working professional doing all you can to stay mentally sharp, or a senior looking to improve your memory due to age. We have some tips for you to enhance your remembrance and mental performance.
There are some key elements of a good brain-boosting activity
- It must be something new. No matter how mentally demanding the activity is, if it’s something you’re already best at, it’s not the best brain exercise. Something unfamiliar and out of your comfort zone is best. To strengthen the mind, you need to keep learning and increasing new skills.
- It’s challenging. The best brain-increasing activities demand your full and close attention. It’s not sufficient that you found the activity challenging at one point. It must still be something that needs mental effort. For instance, learning to play a challenging new piece of music counts. Performing a hard part you’ve already memorized does not.
- It’s a skill you can build on. Look for activities that allow you to start at an easy level and work your method up as your skills recover —always pushing the envelope, so you continue to stretch your skills. When the difficulty level starts to feel comfortable, that means it’s time to tackle the next level of performance.
- It’s rewarding. Rewards support the mind’s learning process. The more interested and engaged you are in the doings, the more likely you’ll be to continue doing it, and the higher achievements you can get. So select activities that, while challenging, are still pleasant and satisfying.
1-Brain boosting diets
- Limit calories and saturated fat. Research shows that foods high in saturated fats (from sources such as red meat, whole milk, butter, cheese, cream, and ice cream) raise your danger of dementia and impair concentration and remembrance.
- Eat more fruit and vegetables. They are packed with antioxidants, materials that protect your brain cells from harm. Colorful fruits and vegetables are the best antioxidant sources.
- Drink green tea. Green tea comprises polyphenols, powerful antioxidants that defend against free radicals that can harm brain cells. Among many other benefits, regular consumption of green tea may increase memory and mental alertness and slow brain aging.
2-Brain-boosting exercise tips
- Aerobic exercise is particularly best for the brain, so select activities that keep your blood pumping. In general, anything that is best for your heart is excellent for your brain.
- Does it take you a long time to put your thought together and plan your day in the morning?? If so, you may find that physical training in the morning before you start your day makes a significant change. In addition to clearing out the cobwebs, it also bests part you for learning throughout the day.
- Physical exercise that requires hand-eye coordination or complex motor skills is particularly helpful for brain building.
Exercise breaks can help you get past mental tiredness and after lunch slumps. Even a short walk or a few jumping jacks can be enough to reboot your mind.
