Are you very forgetful? Do you often miss important events because of that or do you just want to be able to process information faster? ⁣⁣

The following habits will help you 👇👇⁣⁣

⁣⁣

1) Killing ANTs:

😁 I don’t mean literally. I mean killing those little negative thoughts that crawl into your mind from time to time.

They are called Automatic Negative Thoughts these include self debasing, self-doubting and depressive thoughts.

Kill them to enhance your brain.⁣⁣
⁣⁣

2) New Learning:

Learning Something new everyday makes your brain sharper.

When you learn something new, the structure and function of your brain changes to help you process information faster.⁣⁣

⁣⁣

3) Great Diet:

A healthy diet is important for brain health. Remember, your gut controls your brain. Healthy fats e.g egg yolk are great for the brain as the brain itself is 60% fats.
⁣⁣

4) Exercise:

During exercise a compound called BDNF (Brain Derived Neurotrophic Factor) which is like brain fertilizer is released. ⁣⁣

BDNF helps encourage the growth of your brain cells, it is active in areas vital to learning, memory, and higher thinking.⁣⁣
BDNF is important for long-term memory.⁣⁣
⁣⁣

5) Healthy Stress:

Yes, a little stress can be good for you. Short term stressors like a big presentation at work, can contribute to improving your brain.⁣⁣
