How To Reward Your Brain

Your brain is what keeps you going. There are obviously other parts of our body which contribute to our wellbeing (big shout out to the heart pump machine!), but in terms of deciding what we’re going to do, assessing our actions, making moral choices and keeping ourselves happy and healthy, the brain is where it’s at.

Brains are like sponges, soaking up information that we would otherwise be oblivious to. Things that aren’t completely obvious as to how we do it – how we walk, how we talk, how we manage to smile at people. Then there are the things that we take time to work at and work out, such as typing, playing the piano, driving a car and so much more.

So what can we do to help our brains thrive if they’re the most important thing in our body?

Eat Well

There are certain foods that are attributed to helping you focus and concentrate. The brain is not just in charge of controlling you, but has a whole host of other jobs to complete on a daily basis: your memory, your thinking capacity, your movement control and your decision making skills. It’s got an extremely important position to fulfill, and you need to make sure that you are eating the right things (and the right amounts of the right things) to keep it correctly fuelled for as long as it needs to be. Oily fish, such as salmon and mackerel, oils dressing and dark green leafy vegetables are all superfoods which are great for propelling forward our thinking power.

Drink More

While we may be focusing on our diet and what we need to eat to keep our brain healthy, we also need to consider that this vital organ is 80% water – and that means that it needs a lot of hydrating. Drinking at least eight glasses of water per day is imperative if we want to keep a good amount of fluid in our bodies on a daily basis to ensure that our brain is functioning properly.

Avoid Accidents

This can be a hard one to master – accidents are called accidents because we don’t know when they’re going to happen, they’re totally unexpected. However, there are certain situations that aren’t as safe as others – ones that require helmets, for example. Should anything occur like this, Dolman Law Group have information about the legal side which would need covering, but trying to avoid scenarios where it has the potential to happen is the best bet. Wear the proper head protection always, and be extra careful assessing a situation for headcare.

Feed It Brain Food

Ever wonder why kids seem so bright nowadays? It’s because they’re constantly learning. Our brains love to engage with everything and learn new things. Even just a fact a day is new material for it to process and be able to keep active. So crack out the sudokus and start reading some new books – your brain will be thanking you, even if you don’t think it at the time!
