There are millions of benefits attached to having a sharp mind. This translates to good memory, sharp responses, impressive logic and many other things. These are perks that follow when you have mental performance. But looking at the contrary, if our minds are not well performing, we feel weak internally. And then we start to feel how our slow mental capacity affect ourselves, the relationships around us, and the decision-making that we do for our future.
The bottom-line is, we acknowledge the importance of mental performance.
So for this week’s Mindset Monday, we will give you some tips on how to increase your mental performance.
There’s a good reason why fasting has been practiced even by the elders many decades ago. This is supported by a research which claims that “short-term fasting induces profound neuronal autophagy”, the process by which cells recycle waste material, down regulate wasteful processes, and repair themselves. Consequently, brain health is highly dependent on neuronal autophagy.
By fasting, you give your brain an opportunity to develop and function the way it should. It’s simply about taking a break. If you have availed of our Alpha Reset program, at the 34th day of the protocol, you will realise how sharp your mind has become. It’s a smooth transition and it entails a process and coordination.
The human brain is made up of about 75% water. From this fact alone, we can say that getting hydrated all day is an important part of increasing your mental performance. One of the favourite things that we do is having a lemon water drink first thing in the morning. Slowly, you will realise the changes that it’s causing in your body.
On the contrary, if you are dehydrated, you will instead stuff your stomach with unhealthy food. We don’t want that to happen, so much so that it is not in line with our goal for an optimal brain function.
Exercise aids brain health, as much as it aids all organs in our bodies. Exercise is one of the most irrefutable health claims in history. And by simply doing exercise, we enhance our thinking abilities. We consider how much lapses do we need to run for, the pacing of our walks, the movements that we take, etc.
And very soon, we will be introducing the Mitocore Reshape Exercise, our very own home workout program. This is designed so that you won’t have to go out of your own home to move. With this, you will never have an excuse to not exercise.
4) A Cold Bath Followed by Something Hot
This thermal conditioning of the body works well for me. It may be different from one person to another. But our brain communicates with what our bodies are experiencing, which includes the temperatures in our surroundings.
The more engaged we are, the more present we are. When we communicate, we use use our brains actively to be able to come up with a sharp response. But this is different from communication that comes at the midst of all technological interventions. We’re referring to communication that you do when you talk one-on-one with a friend, or when you have dinner with your family. In such instance, you will realise the value of simply detaching yourself from all other things, and just enjoy the moment. Live the present by listening and speaking your thoughts. That way, your brain will learn how to focus on the details.
6) Studying in the Morning
Information does not always come freely to us. Sometimes, we have to look for them. Apparently, we have to feed our brains with new thoughts and information. And what may possibly be the best time to do that? It’s the morning. It’s not the news we’re referring to. It’s the information that you enjoy, about something that you love. Maybe, it’s about cooking or travelling. Give yourself a chance to know more about your interests. And slowly, your increasing your mental performance.
7) Quality Sleep
As much as it is a need, quality sleep brings about a number of benefits that we often underestimate. The thing is, we should always aim for a REM sleep. When we achieve that complete sleep cycle, we become mentally sharp in our ways. Think about how slow you could get when you don’t have enough sleep. So if you want to achieve a highly effective mental system, aim for quality sleep.
8) Stack Super Foods or Supplements
When we say that food is medicine, we simply acknowledge that the kind of food that we eat simply has an effect into our health. Apparently, our entire body is affected by the food that we eat. And when you switch to good food, what do you think will be its impact to your brain? You should supply yourself with super foods and supplements that will shape your body to health. More specifically, there are certain foods that are good for the brain.
Our favourite supplement is Organifi. It contains turmeric, ashwagandha, and many more beneficial ingredients that you will surely love. Furthermore, we stay mentally sharp because of this supplement.
Show some love to your brain by following the tips above. And in no time, you will slowly feel the changes that is happening around you. You will feel more engaged in living the present by having an optimum mental performance.
