Treat your brain well
Want to improve your analytic skills, score better on your exams, and be smarter? There are so many techniques that can help you increase your brain’s performance—and some may even surprise you.
Below are some tips on how you can take care of your brain and use its full potential:
Challenge your brain.
Learn a new language, use your non-dominant hand to do a few chores, and spend your free time solving Sudoku puzzles. These kinds of activities train the brain and promote improved attention, focus, problem-solving skills, and memory.
Visit the doc.
Did you know that memory loss may be caused by an existing health problem? In men, forgetfulness may be due to testosterone deficiency while women may attribute memory loss to low levels of estrogen in their body. Fibromyalgia (muscle rheumatism) and multiple sclerosis may both induce anxiety and depression.
Some medications can also impact a person’s mental health. A report published by the Food and Drug Administration states that Statin, a medication prescribed to improve cholesterol levels, may actually impair memory. Visit your doctor regularly and pay attention to what your body is telling you.
