Here’s a great post by SharpBrains that simplifies how to increase your mental edge. Because a healthy brain is imperative to a productive and truly enjoyable life, you’ll want to follow these four steps to keep you on the right track.
1. Physical Exercise
… If you can only do one thing, do something cardiovascular, meaning something that gets your heart beating faster.
2. Mental Exercise
… If you can only do one thing, learn something new every day.
3. Good Nutrition
… If you can only do one thing, eat more vegetables, particularly green leafy ones.
4. Stress Management
…If you can only do one thing, set aside 5-10 minutes to just breathe deeply and recharge.
I’d like to sum this up by stressing point #2, this is highly underrated in our computerized, televisionized, and utterly cognitively deprived society. You can be different, get out of your comfort zone and learn something new today; read for knowledge, perform a new workout, challenge your body and challenge your mind…
Go for it!
