Improve Your Mind with These 5 Habits

No matter how old you are, there is always space to improve your mind. With a few habits, your brain power can grow and be even more powerful. 


1. Exercise Both Your Mind and Your Body

Both physical and mental exercise is great for improving your mind. Physical exercise not only strengthens your body but also your brain. You have to practice patience and determination when working out which is great practice for your brain. Also, exercise released a flood of good neurotransmitters such as endorphins. Mental exercise, such as doing puzzles, makes you work your brain and practice patience, problem-solving, and complex thinking.

2. Plan Things in Advanced

So many people experience something called “decision fatigue,” which is where you have to make so many tiny decisions that making bigger ones is a lot more challenging. Small decisions such as choosing what to wear and what to eat wear out the brain quickly. Planning outfits, meals, and having a routine makes it so you don’t have to make as many small decisions to wear out the brain.

3. Get Plenty of Sleep

Seriously, sleep is so important to keep the brain functioning properly. Sleep deprivation causes stress to your mind, making you have a hard time making decisions, keeping a positive attitude, and problem-solving. With proper sleep, you will have a stronger mind. Even just resting gives your mind a chance to reset and recharge, allowing you to move on with a clear head.

4. Eat “Brain Food”

A proper diet gives your brain the energy to keep your head clear and your spirits high. Make sure to get a good balance of all the nutrients that you need. Have you ever been in a bad mood and couldn’t focus but as soon as you got a good snack you felt better? This is because your brain needs the proper fuel to function. Foods like leafy greens, blueberries, or walnuts (that look like brains because of their health benefits to the brain) all help your brain stay healthy and keep you happy.

5. Read!

Take 30 minutes a day to read a book of your choosing. Any kind of book will improve your mind over time. Not only is reading a good way to relax and unwind from a stressful day, but it also strengthens your mind. When reading, you absorb new information that keeps your brain working and that strengthens your brain and mind.
