5 Habits To Improve Brain Growth

5 Habits To Improve Brain Growth | Good News For A Change | Scoop.it

We’d all love our brains to process information faster and have better memory recall. While you might think doing crossword puzzles, math puzzles like Sudoku, or brain-training apps will keep your brain in top shape, Dr. Jennifer Jones, a psychologist and expert in the science of success, says there’s no real proof that these can improve your mental acuity. She offers some daily practices that can truly grow your brain:

Brain Growth Habit #1: Rise With The Sun And Go To Sleep Not Long After Sunset.

 

Moving in your circadian rhythm is the best way to improve your brain power, according to Jones. When our sleep cycle is disrupted, our brain’s ability to process information and consolidate stress is inhibited. "Our cognitive abilities don’t work the way they should," says Jones.

Relentless or Resilient? | Good News For A Change | Scoop.it

Today’s working week hardly leaves a moment for rest. Long hours at the office and little rest have become a part of most managers’ careers. Some feel forced into this cycle, while others take pride in how long they spend working and their constant availability to clients.


Many managers discount the idea of having a proper break, underestimating how psychologically vital it is to fuel your best creativity and great decision making.


In the sporting world, rest and recovery are seen as the new competitive advantage. Coaches don’t just focus on physical recovery, but understand how important mental rest is critical to helping athletes stay focused in high pressure moments.
