3 Ways to Keep Your Brain Sharp and Healthy

By Genevieve Cunningham

The brain might be one of the most important parts of the body. It’s what makes us who we are. It’s how we think and function in everyday life. And yet, we give very little thought to keeping the brain healthy. We might think about mental health -- as in our emotions and personal well-being -- but the actual brain? We just don’t give it enough attention. If you would like to protect this important and precious part of the body, take a look at these three tips for success.

Eat Better

You are what you eat, and this certainly includes the brain. If you’re filling your body with junk, then that’s what your brain is using as well. Keeping the brain healthy through diet means eating plenty of vegetables and lean meats. It also includes foods with omega 3 fatty acids -- think fish and nuts -- or you could take a supplement. If you want the brain to be healthy, improve your diet to get it the nutrients it so desperately needs,

Complete Brain Puzzles

In order to keep your memory and focus sharp, you need to exercise it. This doesn’t mean running or yoga or kickboxing. It means to literally exercise the brain! Try to incorporate regular brain puzzles or riddles in your normal routine. This forces the brain to think and problem solve, which helps keep it sharp, When you stop using the mind, you lose it. So use these games to keep it running on a continual basis.

Get Enough Sleep

The mind really suffers when you’re not getting enough rest. If you want to keep the brain healthy, you must get more rest. Go to bed on time and wake up early. Make your room comfortable. Buy a new pillow. Do whatever it takes to get more sleep so that your brain, and your body, can function efficiently and remain in a healthier state every day.

If you’re not taking care of your brain, it’s definitely time to start. It's too important to skip this important step! Use these tips to protect it and boost its health. With some simple changes to your normal healthcare routine and armed with a little bit of knowledge, you can make time for your brain, boost its function and health, and keep yourself sharp and focused for years to come.
