Brain Boost Hacks To Clear Up Your Cloudy Thinking

Today’s article is about how to “broom out the cobwebs in your head” – I’m going to show you a few of the best brain boost hacks that will clear up your cloudy thinking…

  • WITHOUT going to the gym for exercise or yoga
  • WITHOUT making major diet changes (except 1 small one, which I’ll mention below)
  • And WITHOUT changing your sleep schedule

Even though all 3 of these can result in dramatic brain improvements…

The focus today is on those other little things, we’ll call them brain boost hacks, that add up to get your brain running at top speed…

And even though some of them are extremely simple, there’s a good chance you’re not doing them… like this first one…

Brain Boost Hack #1: Write Down Your Notes with Pen & Paper

In today’s modern times, it’s easy to just whip out your smartphone whenever you want to remember something or take a quick picture as a reminder…

But if your goal is developing impressive memory, improved recall, and better overall thinking, then you might want to take a step back in time…

Back to when there were no smartphones.

You see, there’s a connection between the physical act of writing and how it activates your brain more than using a digital device…

And what happens is that your brain processes the information you’re recording in multiple ways, whether it’s a…

  • Friend’s phone number
  • An item on a shopping list
  • Notes from a meeting
  • Or just jotting down an idea

Because your brain is more active, it “remembers” better what you wrote down.

Now, it’s true that we live in a “there’s an app for that” age, but try it a few times and you’ll see that it actually works to strengthen your memory…

And memory is one of the key components of improved brain function.

Just as there’s a connection between your brain and your motor skills, there’s also one with conversation as well, which is why…

Brain Boost Hack #2: Being Social Boosts Your Brain Power

It may sound strange, but simply interacting with other people in a social setting can ramp up your brain waves…

And even though many of us have daily interactions at work, it’s often mechanical in nature…

Meaning that we’re responding to requests in a different way than in a social conversation.

On the other hand, social discussions tend to be more wide open, especially when they’re with multiple people at the same time…

The reason why is that your brain is fielding different opinions and different perspectives simultaneously, which requires a different set of brain functions…

And anytime you activate more areas of your brain, well, your core cognition increases. There are countless ways to add more social time into your schedule, but here are some of my favorites…

  • Host or attend a dinner party
  • Join a book club
  • Make time to meet more often with friends and family
  • Go to local events

In a similar vein, you can also activate lesser-used parts of your brain by…

Brain Boost Hack #3: Learning Something New

As humans, we’re creatures of habit…

Meaning we establish and keep to routines like nobody’s business… because they’re comfortable…

But when you set aside time to learn something new, you force your brain to become more active…

And by something new, I don’t mean you have to take a university class or anything like that (even though that’s not a bad idea either)…

It can be as simple as…

  • Learning a dance from YouTube videos
  • Cooking a new recipe
  • Or heck, even tying your shoes in a different way

The point is that when you do it, your brain has to concentrate on the task at hand…

For myself, I’ve made it a point to make at least one new dish every week… and while I can’t say they’ve all been a success…

I can say that the process of learning how to make them is always engaging and interesting.

And if you’re thinking about cooking as an excellent way to learn new things (which it is), then I’ve got another brain hack for you…

Brain Boost Hack #4: Be Aware of the Fats You’re Eating

various foods that are good for the brain

When you look at a food label, you’ll see the total fat content neatly noted…

However, there’s more to the story than just how many grams of fat are in every bite…

Where that fat is coming from is often just as important (if not more important).

And the truth is that many of us don’t realize how cheap, low-quality fats like blended vegetable oils, margarine, and pork lard can affect your brain’s function…

At the same time, your brain absolutely does need fats to function well, and even though they may cost a little bit more, switching to high-quality fats makes a big difference…

If you’re wondering what are high-quality fats, here are just a few examples…

  • A good extra virgin olive oil
  • Salmon, tuna, and other fatty fish
  • Coconut oil
  • Almond butter

And what all these fats do is provide your brain with a good source of fuel to keep functioning well throughout the day…

Unlike the cheap fats that often lead to brain fog and lowered motivation.

Why Improving Your Brain Makes Sense

Regardless of which brain hack you choose to implement, the benefits of doing so are worth every minute of effort you put into it…

That’s because keeping your brain in shape is of paramount importance as you age…

And a healthy, active brain will give you better protection from dementia, Alzheimer’s, and other cognitive disorders that can appear later in life…

And it all comes by doing something you’ll enjoy, which makes the brain hacks listed above such a… no-brainer (sorry, couldn’t resist)…

There’s plenty more brain hacks out there for increased cognitive function, so if you don’t like any of the ones mentioned, here’s just a few more to try…

  • Listen to classical music
  • Play board games
  • Meditate

If you’re looking for some extra help to improve your brain function and focus, I recommend you…
