Strengthen Your Brain Muscles

Just like your body, you can improve your mental fitness with these simple exercises.

Take a deep breath.Breathing is the only bodily function that we do both voluntarily and involuntarily. Inhale and exhale deeply to improve your physiological and psychological well-being.

Tell a good story.Sharing experiences in a compelling and fun way sharpens your mental recall.

Mix up your routine.Take a different route to work, or sit with your legs crossed opposite the way you normally would. Changing your typical way of doing things tells your brain to wake up and pay attention.

Write.Writing notes, poetry, stories or in a journal helps your memory, clarifies your thinking and engages your creativity.

Laugh.Endorphins released when you laugh lower your stress and can help your long-term health.

Perfect your posture.Try solving a problem while slouching down at your desk versus sitting upright and see how it impacts your outcome. Proper posture improves blood flow to your brain bringing mental clarity and improved memory.
