Are You Supporting Your Brain Health?

I’m guessing and hoping that you are taking care of your heart, gut, liver, kidney, and all other organs.

Are – you paying enough attention to tour your brain health? Do you know what’s right, and not so good for your brain? If you are not so sure, I can help you with this article.

With 100 billion neurons and trillions of supporting cells, this complex organ is fully developed at the age of 25 for females and the age of 28 for males.

Experts believe some people are not paying attention to brain health, thinking that we cannot change present brain condition.

Wrong!

You can do more then you believe.

The human brain can grow, heal, and change at any age, even though the brain shrinking as we are getting older!

We can say: Whatever is good for the heart, it’s good for the brain.

You know the statement: “Use it, or lose it.” Therefore, you go to the gym to keep your muscles in good shape.

Why don’t you want to keep your brain in “good shape”?

How?

Give your brain challenges every day, learning new things.

Challenge your brain by thinking differently, paying attention to the details, and stop doing routinely any skills. Use your left hand instead of right if you are right-handed, or vice versa. Drive to any familiar destination on a different route.

If you can do something” with closed eyes,” you’re not challenging your brain, you’re running your subconscious programs. Something that you already know how to do.

Learn how to: dance new steps, play another instrument, speak another language, play another card’s game. Write a story, paint original paintings, for yourself benefits only, not to make money, or become “famous.” Read demanding literature, literature which helps you think differently.

As a sport, play ping-pong, the best brain’s sports game.

Learn meditation and deep relaxation techniques.

Be a person with good intentions, gratitude, and appreciation.

Do not do multitasking! Stop being obsessed with social media.

Keep a great social life.

Stay away from drugs, stimulants, nicotine, alcohol, and, definitely, as much as you can, from no. 1 brain’s killer: STRESS, especially chronic stress, emotional, or physical.

I didn’t want to mention: exercise (physical and mental), a proper healthy diet, a good night’s sleep, less screen time because you already knew that.

Now you know how to support your brain health.
