I've read this article in a bilingual book and found that it's quite useful for everyone. So I type that on this post, also I practice my English writing.
A mind is a valuable thing to waste. You've heard the saying many times, but it's true. Your mind is your most valuable asset. You need to take care of it. So here's a list of 6 things you can do every day to benefit your brain:
1. Take a nap
Refreshing your body can also help you improve brain function, increase memory, and improve your mood. Even just 15 minutes can make a huge difference in your day-to-day life. Naps improve your brain performance, so why are you still awake??
2. Do something creative just before going to bed
When you're tired, your brain can be more creative. Take advantage! Whether you're writing the next great American Novel or dusting off the old paint brush and canvas, finding your creative just before going to bed can yield great results. So tap your inner Picasso and create something beautiful. Just don't fall asleep with the brush in your hand.
3. Focus on one task at a time
Did you know that it's literally impossible for your brain to multitask? By focusing on one task at a time, you can keep your brain working at maximum capability and accomplish more than you imagined. Find a task you need to finish and focus solely on it. Leave the phone in the other room, turn the TV off, and focus. Your brain will thank you.
4. Do Exercise
You've heard that cardio leads to a healthier and better body. But it also helps the mind. Find 15-30 minutes a day and get moving! You don't need a gym membership or any fancy equipment. Just a walk around the neighborhood can do wonders and benefit.
5. Write. Like on a real piece of paper
Computers, iPads, tablets, smartphones and the connection to the internet everywhere means it's becoming less and less likely that you will pull out a piece of paper and write. But research suggests handwriting makes you smarter. So leave your computer on your desk during the next meeting and write your notes.
6. Take a multi-vitamin daily
Your car needs oil, your smartphone needs a battery, and your brain needs nutrients. A daily multi-vitamin will ensure that you get your body what it needs. And it will help your brain according to research from the British Journal of nutrition. Pro-tip: take your multi-vitamin with a healthy smoothie to get your day off to a great start.
