Have you ever been so overwhelmed and frazzled that you can’t think straight? If you’re like me and many other highly sensitive people, I’m sure that you can relate to this situation.
Don’t worry, your brain power boost is only a few simple steps away. These steps will help you in your quest to keep your brain working better by being in a more relaxed state. They are as follows:
* Engage in a Regular Exercise– Do simple exercises like a simple walk or jog. It doesn’t have to be as intense as a full-blown work-out. You just have to keep your body physically fit and active. Simple work-outs on a regular basis will trigger the release of neuro-chemicals known as endorphins. These chemicals make you feel happy and more relaxed.
* Use your Brain–If you exercise your body, you should also exercise your brain as well. Use your brain muscles more often – think and learn. You can read, talk with other people, or even play educational games. Any activity that can keep your brain working and helps you socialize with others will increase your well-being.
* Sleep Well— Sleeping is the time when your body rebuilds and recharges itself. Most professionals believe that you should sleep for at least six to eight hours a day. Aside from these hours, you should also try to take ten-minute power naps. After these refreshing sleeps and naps, you will surely feel energized to take on more activities for the day. Your brain will function better with more hours of sleep.
* Relax–Because of the complexities of our society today, your brain is exhausted just as much as your body. Thus, you should take the time to relax and cleanse your mind of the worries and stresses that might overwhelm your thoughts. You may want to listen to music or any other activity that gives your mind a break from all the hassle.
Make it a habit to consciously build frazzle busting activities into your normal routine. What other activities will help lighten your physical and emotional load?
I’m interested in any thoughts or comments that you have.
