Optimize Your Brain to Its Full Potential

Optimize Your Brain to Its Full Potential

Everyone wants to sharpen their focus, enhance their memory, and improve concentration. Yet, if you believe what you read online, you’d think you need dietary supplements, online games, and various apps to do it. We have 3 super easy ways that can help optimize your brain into its full potential.
 

  1. optimize-your-brain-...Get a good night sleep: REM (rapid eye movement) sleep helps “stimulate associative networks, allowing the brain to make new and useful associations between unrelated ideas” and are “not due to selective memory enhancements” such as memory consolidation, which occurs when awake. A sleepy brain also impairs your judgment, making you prone to risky decisions.
     
  2. Exercise: Physical activities elevate cognitive performance and improves long-term memory, reasoning, attention, problem-solving and even so-called fluid-intelligence tasks, which require people to think abstractly.
     
  3. Eat "smart" foods: If you want to have a healthier brain, you need to consume a healthy diet. The superfoods that help your brain function better include salmon, avocados, blueberries, eggs, dark chocolate, yogurt, whole grains, and green tea.
     

As well as following the steps above, it’s a good idea to investigate craniosacral therapy because it helps to make sure the movement of fluids in and around your central nervous system are in alignment so your brain can work at its highest potential.
