Brain Fitness for Intro-preneurs
Do you ever feel like your brain isn’t working optimally? That there just might be more untapped power waiting within?
Well, you’re not the only one. Our brains are incredibly powerful and efficient if we utilize them properly.
This may seem like an odd topic to tie specifically to introverts. After all, what does this have to do with us? Everything, I would argue, as introverts like myself are usually caught up in their own minds. I believe we want to know why we think and process the way we do and then improve on it.
So if you’re an introvert that wants these things, too, here are 3 brain hacks just for you, designed to increase productive brain activity.
Ever been to the gym and lifted heavy weights? You know that feeling when your muscle is flexed as it’s going through your workout? Well that’s basically how your brain is all the time. It’s on (flexed) 24/7. Even when we are sleeping, the brain is still active in the background.
It’s hard to get full use out of it if you don’t allow it to rest. That is where meditation comes in. It allows us to relax the brain and quiet it down. There are many different ways to meditate: guided and silent. I prefer silent meditation and focusing on my breathing. Thoughts come and go, and that’s okay, but the main thing I do is listen to my breathing. It allows my mind to “un-flex” and relax.
We’ve all heard the adage “You are what you eat”. For many of us in San Diego, we would be french fries, burgers, pizza, or burritos. The problem is our brains need vital nutrition in order to function at peak capacity. You can’t pour 83 Arco-rated gasoline into a Lamborghini and expect it to run like a race car; in the same way you can’t put in junk food and expect your mind to perform like an all-star.
Some great food items to nourish the brain for higher functionality include: green leafy vegetables, walnuts, avocados, eggs, blueberries, healthy omega 3s like wild salmon, fish oil, coconut products, and turmeric. If you practice incorporating healthier choices into your diet, the difference in your mind power will be noticeable within 2 weeks!
Don’t just feed your mind with the right nutrition. Provide it with the right information to grow and expand. You feed your mind with books on personal growth, development, and success.
Our mind is like a garden; it can either be full of weeds or a haven of beautiful plants and flowers. By training your brain in the right way, it will build upon itself each day, creating new synapses. Not only that, but it will also help increase willpower and creativity.
There you have it guys: 3 simple hacks to increase your brain power. Give it a try for 30 days, and you’ll notice a world of change. If you’re looking for an even more drastic level-up, here are two bonus tips. Exercise and get your heart rate up 5X a week for at least 30 minutes. Finally, take quick power naps to refresh your mind when you’re feeling sluggish. Have at it, my friends!
