For some people waking up and leaving their warm beds is a true heroic deed. But when you do one deed, it is easier to do the next. How do you make your brain wake up with you? Here are 7 working ways to perk up your brain.
1. Physical exercises.
Physical exercises not only keep your body in shape but also keep your brain working, as due to the intensive movements, the blood circulates better in your body as well as in your brain. The best exercises for waking up your brain are ones when your head is situated lower your heart (there are many positions like this in yoga).
2. Drink water, not coffee.
Many researches prove that coffee doesn't influence our productivity as great as everyone thinks. A glass of water can do a much better job that will last longer. Water on an empty stomach activates the work of gastrointestinal tract, yet doesn't irritate mucous membrane as coffee does.
3. Different flavors can make you concentrate better.
As a rule, people don't identify smells very well. Although, smells can help you concentrate and cheer you up. The specialists suggest using fragrances of basil, rosemary, Melissa, rose and lavender.
4. Optimism in everything.
It is not a secret that every work, especially intellectual one, goes better in a calm atmosphere. It is not always possible to create such an atmosphere, though. But if you learn how to concentrate your attention on the bright sides, your productivity will definitely increase.
A good exercise for your brain will be solving different crossword puzzles, riddles, enigmas, etc.
6. Healthy eating.
The best way to clear mind and good memory is healthy eating that consists of fruits and vegetables. You can eat some chocolate now and then, it is also quite good for your brain.
7. Don't ever stop learning something.
Even if the brightest mind stops being active, it will grow dull soon. That is why you need to train it all the time. Learn foreign language, learn how to draw, cook, etc. 15-minute brain exercises per day can prevent any degradation.
Taking care of your brain work is very important. You should always be sure that you can handle different tasks at work no matter how difficult they may be. Follow these tips, find out other ones or create ones yourself and keep your mind in shape.
