10 ideas that will supercharge your brain!

 

A person with more brainpower has the more chances of success in every competitive field. Your brain is similar to a muscle. Psychologists say that you can grow your mental faculties as much you want. Here are a few tips to improve brain use:

 

1. Physical exercise. Physical exercise strengthens your brain. Exercise benefits your brain cells. The blood vessels inside your brain dilate and increase blood flow when you engage in regular exercise. Exercise helps to eliminate toxins and allows oxygen and other nutrients to flow into your brain strengthening your brain cells.

 

2. Mind exercises. Concentration and clear thinking are more or less automatic once you remove distractions. Learn to stop and watch your busy mind. As you notice things that are subtly bothering you, deal with them. This might mean making a phone call you need to make, or putting things on a list so you can forget them for now. With practice, this becomes easier, and your thinking becomes more powerful.

 

3. Healthy breakfast. Start your day with a healthy breakfast. Skipping breakfast affects your brainpower and performance at home, school or work. Minimize your eating during the day to mostly live raw fruits and veggies and their juices. This will help you detoxify and nourish your brain with essential nutrients and antioxidants to protect your brain from daily free radicals assaults.

 

4. Increase Water Intake. Given that your brain is about 80 percent water, the first rule of brain nutrition is adequate water to hydrate your brain. Even slight dehydration can raise stress hormones, which can damage your brain over time. Drink at least 84 ounces of water a day. It is best to have your liquids unpolluted with artificial sweeteners, sugar, caffeine, or alcohol. You can use herbal, non-caffeinated tea bags, such as raspberry or strawberry flavored, and make unsweetened iced tea. Green tea is also good for brain function as it contains chemicals that enhance mental relaxation and alertness.

 

5. Keep journals and notebooks. All the smart people write down their ideas, thoughts and observations. Writing things down lets, your brain know that you value its ideas. How does it reward you? By providing more ideas and better ideas. Writing things down creates a feedback loop that makes you smarter. You objectify your thoughts onto paper and that helps you think about them in a more powerful way. This is a great way to improve your brainpower.

 

6. Think positively. Thinking positively enables you to access your higher thinking abilities. When you are positive and feeling good, your mind functions smoothly. Ask yourself emotion-leading questions like, What am I grateful for right now ? and Who do I love and who loves me ?

 

7. Make sure you sleep enough. Your brain is rejuvenate during those sleeping hours. Research from the University of California suggests that if you have been awake for 21 hours straight, your abilities are equivalent to someone who is legally drunk. Sleep allows your brain to process new memories, practice new skills and solve problems. Therefore, a good night sleep is essential to boost your brainpower. How many hours sleep constitutes a good night sleep will vary between individuals, but between 6 and 8 hours, sleep is normally considered sufficient.

 

8. Creative Visualization. Use the power of Creative Visualization. Creative Visualization is a technique that involves the use of mental energy to transform and improve the life of the individual who uses the technique. You can use your brains mental energy to improve your life because your imagination is incredibly powerful and, when used correctly, can enhance your life by creating what you really want. Creative visualization can be used to accelerate learning, improve memory and motivation, and of course, improve brainpower!

 

9. Develop your creativity and your intuition. Creativity gives power to your thinking. Raw computation can be done by computers now, but humans provide the creative thought that shapes our world. Intuition can be an important part of brainpower. Einstein and others have relied heavily on their intuitive hunches.

 

10. Make a brainpower plan. It takes about twenty to thirty days of repetition to establish new habits, many psychologists will tell you. This means that when you create your plan for improved brainpower, be sure you plan to use that new problem solving technique, or eat those new brain foods for at least three weeks. You can use many of the brain boosters here and get immediate results, but it is creating new habits that will give you the most brainpower.

 

So go ahead try this ideas and supercharge your brain!

get better, by thinking better!

How to Increase Your Metabolism!

 

Metabolism is the speed at which your body breaks down your foods and turn them into energy. The faster you break down energy and use energy, the less likely you are to store calories as fat. In other words, the higher your metabolism, the less fat your body will naturally maintain.

How do you boost metabolism naturally? Here are a few ways:

==> Alkalize Your Blood

The level of acidity in your blood has a direct correlation to your metabolism. The ideal pH for your body’s bloodstream is 7.35.

How do you know what your pH level is? You need to get your blood tested. Some insurance plans cover this, while others don’t. If you’re serious about increasing your metabolism, however, it’s a worthwhile investment.

Once you get your pH test back, actively work on either increasing or decreasing your blood acidity level until it’s at the target 7.35 value. The most practical way to test your ph levels is by looking at your urine, the more acidic your body is the yellow and darker it is. The more alkaline your body is the more hydrate and less acidic you are.

Another good way to get your ph levels up is to drink kangen ph 9.5 water. Just google it!

Here is what not to do: DON’T EVER DRINK ANY COLA DRINKS. ONE GLASS OF DIET COKE IS SO  ACIDIC WILL NEED 17 GLASES OF REGULAR TAB WATHER TO BRING YOUR  PH LEVEL TO 7.35

==> Eat Bigger Meals Early in the Day

Your body starts the day out with an extremely fast metabolism. Your body then gradually slows down its metabolism until night time, when the metabolism is much slower.

Most people’s diet is completely the opposite of what it should be if you want to lose weight. Ideally, you should eat your biggest meal for breakfast. This allows your body’s fast metabolism to process all that food quickly.

Likewise, you should eat your smallest meal at night when your body’s metabolism is slow.

==> Eat Low Glycemic Index Foods

The glycemic index is a grade for foods of how much it will spike your blood sugar. The higher the grade, the worse it is for your energy and metabolism.

If you want a high, stable metabolism, stick to low glycemic index foods.

This doesn’t mean you have to drastically change your diet. All you need to do is replace high GI foods with low GI foods of a similar nature.

For example, instead of having potatoes, have red potatoes. Have whole grains instead of white rice. Have fruits for snacks instead of candy bars. Add a side salad to your steak instead of French fries.

==> Work Out first thing in the morning!

This is the most simple and direct way to increase your metabolism. If you want your body to process energy faster, you need to burn more energy. Otherwise your body simple won’t feel the need to have a fast metabolism. Work out on a regular basis, ideally at least 30 minutes a day, five days a week. This alone will do a lot to increase your metabolism.

Increasing your metabolism is one of the easiest ways to lose weight. Instead of having to actively burn calories through workouts or decrease food intake through dieting, you simply allow your body’s natural functions to do the hard work. It’s a powerful thing!

hope this small advice will help you improve your life!

Circuit training, the BEST workout for today’s busy Lifestyle!

 

Everyone knows the value of exercise and other physical activities to one’s health. Unfortunately, many modern day clients are preoccupied with the ever-increasing demands of work, family, and other important matters that they have no time to include exercise in their schedules. Here is my fitness suggestion. Start doing circuit training!

A great way to improve one’s health and physique is by doing a workout program called circuit training. This kind of training program involves moving from one strength training routine to another, in a specified amount of time, with the goal of working the major muscle groups in the upper body, lower body, and core.

If YOU want to try this program should remember that no two consecutive exercises should target the same muscle group. During circuit training, individuals usually perform exercises in about 20 to 30 seconds with a 30 second recovery between each exercise. Three to five sets of exercises are done with an one to three minute recovery between each set.

Circuit training may improve strength, muscle endurance, and metabolism because of constant movement. In addition to these health benefits, if circuit exercises are done at speed, some benefits of aerobic exercises can be achieved as well.

However, this type of program alone may not burn enough calories to promote significant weight-loss. This exercise program, like other workout programs, has advantages and disadvantages.

 

The advantages of circuit training:

- Development of strength and endurance 

- Ideal form of training for many kinds of sports 

- Can be adjusted for appropriate age, fitness, and health of individuals 

- Exercises are simple enough to make you feel a sense of achievement in completing them 

- A wide range of exercises are available that will suit an person’s preference

 

 

Disadvantages of circuit training may include the following:

- Many exercises require equipment (dumbbells, barbells, exercise ball, etc) 

- Ample space is required to perform circuit exercises 

- Use of some equipment require appropriate health and safety monitoring

  

Just like other exercise programs, circuit training should be done properly and in moderation to achieve improved health. Some people are in such a hurry to improve their health that they tend over-train.

Over-training should be avoided because too much or too intense physical activity may take its toll on the body. This happens because the body literally undergoes wear and tear during training. To build muscles and improve the body, it needs to rest to attain normal development. THIS IS THE MOST BORING PART IN THE WHOLE POST:

Medical studies show that over-training may cause fatigue and cause respiratory infection. In addition to these ailments, men who over-train may experience a decline in sperm quality and production. This happens because intense physical activities may reduce the level of the hormones in the bloodstream that affects the sperm. Normal sperm production and quality may return to normal after two to three days of rest.

Before beginning circuit training and other physical activities, you are encouraged to seek the advice of doctors and other health specialists. Understanding the advantages and disadvantages of physical activities may lead to improve overall health.
