How to keep a clear mind for years to come: 5+ effective ways
No one wants to become a person who can’t remember the names of their relatives or find their way from the shop to their own house as they age. To keep your mind clear and your cognitive faculties sharp, it’s important to do the following few things regularly.
Exercise is not only important for our muscles, bones, and joints but also our brain. It greatly improves blood circulation, which, in turn, provides the brain with the right amount of oxygen, thus increasing its performance.
Physical activity can be of any kind: strength or aerobic, long or short, slow and steady, or very intense and fast. Whichever type of exercise you choose, it’s important to exercise your brain and body’s health regularly.
Learn new things
New knowledge and skills are great for training your brain and keeping it busy. Try to learn something new every day, for at least 15-20 minutes, and your mind will thank you for it.
The main thing is not to overload your brain with information; otherwise, all your efforts could come to naught.
Be outdoors more often
Do not sit all day in the same building, especially if you work at a remote location. Take at least 20-30 minutes out for a morning and evening walk in the sunshine and get some fresh air. This will help you cheer up, relieve tension, lift your spirits, and instantly ‘clear’ your mind.
For mental clarity and to get rid of stress, it’s also a good idea to regularly get out into nature for two to three days.
Get enough sleep
Chronic lack of sleep can cause several serious illnesses, including neurodegenerative ones like Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s disease. So never overlook how important it is to get a good and long night’s rest, and try to get seven(7) –nine(9) hours of sleep a night.
Chess is a game that’s great for brain training. So don’t pass up the chance to play chess, even if you’re not a pro or a genius. Even losing games will help you improve your cognitive abilities and keep your mind clear and flexible.
There’s more than just memes and catcalls on the internet; there’s also a lot of useful information that can be an excellent exercise for the brain.
Google (or any other search engine) more often for the information you are interested in: learn new things, refresh old knowledge, find arguments for arguments or topics for conversations with strangers.
