7 Natural Ways To Boost Your Brain Power + Sharpen Your Mind. https://youtu.be/B0eyAFwxU2E ............ Sure, there's not much you can do to stop time. You can however, improve the quality of your life within the time you have — and that includes keeping your mind sharp and vibrant. Here are my favorite simple ways to keep your brain sharp and vibrant. 1. Practice meditation to decrease stress. Studies shows that chronic stress can damage the brain. So you can help protect and strengthen your brain by engaging in activities or lifestyle habits that decrease the firing of your stress response. One of the best ways to do this is through developing a meditation practice, even if it's just 10 to 20 minutes a day. You can practice breath-focused exercises, mindfulness meditation, yoga, Tai Chi, or engage in a spiritual practice or ritual, like prayer. 2. Take up cognitive training exercises. The mind stays sharp when the plasticity of the brain is maintained. Brain plasticity refers to the brain’s ability to constantly change over the course of a person’s lifetime. And this plasticity can be maintained — and better yet, improved — by engaging in cognitive training exercises, which challenge your intellectual capacity. 3. Exercise your body — for your brain. Research shows that physical exercise enhances cognitive function. One reason might be because it increases levels of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) , a protein that improves learning, memory and higher thinking by stimulating growth of new neurons and helping existing neurons stay alive. 4. Practice deep listening. Any time you're engaged in activities that require communication, your neurons need to fire and synapses need to function. Injury to the brain and even too much stress can challenge this communication highway and make speaking, listening, understanding cues and integrating information more difficult. 5. Ditch the sugar. A diet high in sugar can be harmful to the brain, inducing inflammation, oxidative stress and poor insulin regulation. Your goal, therefore, is to follow a diet that helps you improve insulin sensitivity and reduce inflammation. This means eating fish, some meat, a lot of vegetables, some nuts and seeds, some fruit and very little grains. 6. Nourish your brain with antioxidants. Your brain benefits not only from a low sugar intake, but also from getting more antioxidants, which can help improve your memory, learning and overall cognitive performance. Antioxidant-rich foods include berries (especially blueberries) , fruits and vegetables like carrots, spinach and red grapes, and drinks like green tea, red wine, and coffee, as well as dark chocolate (in moderation, of course) . 7. Sleep on it. We've all had that moment when we're sleep-deprived and can't remember where we put the keys or what we went into the kitchen to get. You can't fully operate when you're sleep-deprived — and this includes your cognitive skills, memory and ability to think clearly or communicate. If you don't feel well-rested, see if you need more hours of sleep or if it's a question of improving the quality of sleep. Consider getting a Fitbit or other gadget that monitors how restfully you're sleeping, or have a sleep study done by your doctor. You may find that you simply have to wake up too early to get the right amount of hours in. Thanks For Watching. Subscribe For More Videos. Source: www.mindbodygreen.com .........................
