Use Brain-Boosting Supplements and Foods

You are what you eat, so why not eat things that will make you smarter? The first key to eating smart is moderation. I do this by eating large portions of vegetables and high-fiber foods. Not only are they delicious, but they fill me up and make me feel more satisfied. And the more vegetables you eat, the better they taste.

Exercise Is a Great Brain Booster

It’s easy to feel overwhelmed when you want to make positive changes in your life. Health and wellness are a journey, however, not a destination. When you aim for progress rather than perfection you are more likely to get the best results. My grandma always said “perfect is the enemy of good.”

My Top Brain Exercises

Last, but not least, if you want to boost your brain, here is my list of fun activities to improve your brainpower:

  • Solve jigsaw puzzles. Puzzles, especially big ones, help you work with your spatial skills, memory, and aesthetic sense and will help your brain work smoothly.

  • Practice a musical instrument. If you don’t know how to play, take lessons. Music is one of the greatest sources of joy in the world. The fact that it makes you smarter is a nice bonus. Without music, life would be a mistake.
  • Use one of the many brain exercise apps, like Lumosity.
  • Learn a foreign language. You can use apps like Babbel or DuoLingo to give yourself an edge, or you can follow a YouTube channel about learning a specific language.
  • Improve your vocabulary. Look up words you don’t know when you hear them, and try to use them in your daily routines. The ability to articulate yourself is one of the most powerful skills you have. Improving your word power can translate into promotions, more friends, and more respect. The pen truly is mightier than the sword.
  • Set a goal or a series of goals. The bigger your goal, the better, as long as you have a good chance of meeting it.
  • Take dance classes. Dancing combines music and physical activities and offers unique benefits. You’ll improve your focus as you pay attention to the music, your partner, and your body while also concentrating on moving through space. You’ll get exercise, which will increase your oxygen perfusion and circulation. You’ll also experience an elevated mood and better social awareness. All of these things will make you stronger, more capable, more focused, and clearer.
  • Read a book. When you exercise your brain by reading, you have to pay attention and focus. Reading a book is very similar to reading someone else’s mind. By understanding the point of view held by others, it increases your empathy. Reading is also a skill that doesn’t come naturally to many people. As you exercise this skill, your focus will improve, as will your empathy, education, and understanding of the world around you.

Practice Brain Exercises to Have a Happier Life

Keeping your mind and body healthy and whole is a journey. As you go through life, the more effort you put into maintaining total wellness, the happier, healthier, and more successful you will be.
