How to Train your brain?
1. Do One Thing at a Time
If you’re trying to have a phone conversation while checking e-mail, chances are good you won’t remember a word you talked about. A growing body of research finds our increasing tendency to multitask actually harms our brains.
2. Discover a New Land
Spend a day exploring in an unfamiliar town. The challenge that comes from following a map, coupled with the novelty that new sights, sounds, and smells bring, serves as a healthy wake-up call for your brain.
3. Be a Bookworm
Read for an hour every day. Your brain will soak up the knowledge like a parched rosebush, sending out blooms in the form of neurons that help maintain a healthy memory.
4. Skip Dessert Tonight
And tomorrow night as well. It might just help you drop a few pounds—a good thing when it comes to memory.
5. Listen To Music at the Gym
A study of 33 adults undergoing cardiac rehabilitation found that those who listened to music while they worked out improved their scores on a verbal fluency test—a test that measures overall brainpower.
6. Feed Your Brain Whole Grain
If you’ve been following a high-protein, low-carb diet and simultaneously finding your memory going, it’s probably not a coincidence. More than any other organ, the brain relies on glucose for fuel. And glucose comes from carbs.
7. It Or Lose It-Golden Rule
Yes, That’s the golden rule of brainpower. The brain functions like a muscle in that the more you use it, the stronger it gets. Learning new things, varying your routines, having provocative discussions, going on adventurous vacations, and playing a musical instrument all cause your brain to make new connections and function better.
