3 Tips to Help Your Brain Function Optimally

Click on image to enlarge.
Here are some tips to help your brain function optimally:

– Boost your brainpower with meditation; it's proven to increase IQ, relieve stress and promote higher learning levels. 

– Listen to music. Studies have proven that listening to music strengthens the brain and literally changes the structure.

– Your brain is two-thirds fat. Myelin, the protective sheath covering your neurons is 70% fat. Eating fatty fish, green leafy vegetables, olive oil, avocados, chia seeds, flax seeds, and nuts, replenish your neurons and brain cells. Loss of these fatty acids (EPA and DHA) are linked to depression, Parkinson's and Alzheimer's.

The human brain is complex. Along with performing millions of mundane acts, it composes concertos, issues manifestos and comes up with elegant solutions to equations. It's the wellspring of all human feelings, behaviors, experiences, as well as the repository of memory and self-awareness. So it's no surprise that the brain remains a mystery unto itself.

Because your body responds to mental input as if it were physically real, the thoughts you hold in mind affect you biologically and physiologically, therefore, creating "your" reality. Since you have about 70,000 thoughts per day, why not deliberately choose thoughts that can help you mold more favorable life experiences?
