Do you ever feel your brain running slower than usual? Don’t stress - we’ve all been there. As the most complex organ in the human body, your brain requires some extra exercises to stay at the top of its game. To help you out, we’ve got together some of our favourite daily brainpower routines that can be used alongside our Nootropic Supplement.


Sudoku


A classic newspaper game that’s been around for centuries, there’s no doubt that wrapping your head around a sudoku puzzle is great for your brain. In fact, studies have found that sudoku ‘may be used for cognitive remediation training’, thanks to the activation of various areas of the brain. The strategic thinking the game supports could also potentially lead to regrowth in cells and brain connectivity when done daily. If you’re not keen on sudoku puzzles, why not commit to a daily crossword instead? There are plenty of additional brain training games on the back of papers, as well as in free apps online. If you’re asking yourself ‘which is the best brain exercise for your brain?’, any puzzle you find strains your thinking power is a perfect choice.


Meditation


Meditation might seem a bit wishy-washy if you’re unfamiliar with it, but the practice is actually one of the best ways to lower stress levels and strengthen your attentiveness and focus. The best way to think about meditation is a workout for your brain, just like a physical workout at the gym. To start, find a calm, quiet place to sit comfortably, either indoors or outdoors. After you’ve found the right space, close your eyes and focus intently on your breathing, while trying to quiet the chattering voice in your mind. You might find it difficult at first, but the more you practice the better you’ll get at aligning your focus. Various studies have shown that meditation can have a significant impact on your stress levels and general wellbeing, especially when practised daily.


Learn a new skill


While committing to learning a new skill is a little more time consuming than puzzles or meditation, the benefits can be huge. If you’ve ever wanted to learn a new language, now’s the time to do it. Not only do you pick up a genuinely useful skill, but learning something as complicated as a language can help you enhance your cognitive skills no end. If learning how to speak a new language is intimidating to you, why not pick up an instrument instead? There are plenty of online courses that can help you learn a variety of hobbies daily. When stuck with, learning new skills is brilliant for enhancing memory and improving cognitive function.


As well as conducting your own daily cognitive practices, our Nootropic Supplement could be the perfect addition to your daily routine. Delivered in discreet packaging every month, this brain supplement could help to improve your focus and memory, as well as lowering stress levels. Take a look through our treatment plan today.
