Boost Your Brainpower! Expand Your Productivity in the Workplace


Our brain is like a muscle and it needs to be exercised too! Switch it up each day, and improve your productivity in the workplace. It's great news that our brains can change and develop no matter how old we are, simply by doing different tasks and exercises.

Here are 5 things you can do to boost your brainpower:

Do Something New – When you do something new it forces your brain to create new neural pathways that work to increase your intelligence level. It doesn’t have to be anything drastic; it can be as simple as starting a new exercise routine or trying out a new recipe.

Be Curious – While it can be easy to just take things as they seem, you would actually be doing your brain a favor by questioning and taking a deeper look. When you question, you force your brain to become more innovative and create new ideas.

Eat Healthy – Diet is not just important for the body but the mind as well! Our brains actually consume over 20% of all of the nutrients and oxygen that we put into our bodies.

Read a Book – Reading can be extremely beneficial to your brain; reading relieves you of tension and stress and allows you to escape for a little while. Reading also forces you to use your imagination, which is another way to train that brain muscle!

Think Positive – You can actually kill existing brain neurons with stress and anxiety and prevent new ones from being created. The best way to counteract this is to think positive, especially about the future; this intensely speeds up the creation of cells and works to diminish stress and anxiety.

When it comes to working out that brain muscle all you have to do is take care of your body overall and make it a point to not get stuck in that every day rut. Do something new, do what makes you happy, and never be afraid to question!
