Preventative Strategies for Healthy Brain
Preventative Strategies for Healthy Brain

 

The functions of healthy brain are necessary to help you with concentration, memory and performance at work. Follow some simple anticipatory strategies to keep your mind working well and brightly.

  1. Avoid Stress - Because stress is brain poison, it shrinks areas of the brain. Reduce stress and stay positive try to meditate, practice yoga, and lead a balanced life. 
  2. Exercise– Because healthy blood flow in the brain strengthens and maintains the neuronal connections.  
  3. Explore new ways of thinking – Exercise your mental abilities to keep them strong. Think creatively, you will strengthen the connections that you draw upon for creative thought. 
  4. Challenge your brain- Learn to play a new musical instrument, a new language or a new skill that requires concentration. Switch hands when doing simple tasks. 
  5. Diet – Eat colorful foods; orange, red, blue and green foods. These are loaded with phytonutrients and antioxidants that are critical for your cell protection. Eat 80% fruits and vegetables. The more fiber they contain the better. 
  6. Avoid Trans-Fats-They harden your cell membranes and make your brain slow.
  7. Eat Fish and white meat like Chicken, Turkey, and Beans For Protein – These are loaded with the amino acids required for your brain to make and maintain a balanced set of neurotransmitters.  
  8. Eat Seeds and Nuts for Fat and Protein – Almonds, walnuts, macadamia nuts, and pecans are excellent as are pumpkin, sunflower, flax and other seeds. Your brain is full of fat and you need the fatty acids for a healthy brain.
  9. Control Your Blood Sugar and Your Weight – Too much glucose will kill your brain and too little will starve it. Our body has a complex glucose-insulin regulation system to control blood glucose levels, eat lots of fibers and get your carbohydrates from complex carbohydrates like fruits and vegetables; these will release into your bloodstream slowly and help keep a more constant level of glucose supplied to your brain. 
  10. Drink enough water-The human brain is 78% water so dehydration will significantly reduce its performance levels. Drink at least six glasses a day to allow you to think clearly. 
  11. Don't forget to sleep-You must get at least seven hours each night.
