Unplug to Recharge Your Brain

Unplug to Recharge Your Brain | Unplug | Scoop.it
Don't believe Woody Allen when he says the brain is his "second most favorite organ." Make it your favorite organ. Treat your brain as the creative, renewing center of your mind.
Susan Taylor's insight:

Frenzied?  Harried?  Drained?  Zapped?  That's the way most Americans feel these days.  We are way over the top over-stimulated.  The cure?  Unplug to recharge your brain


Matthew Edlund, M.D. gives us 8 helpful suggestions:


  1. Walk: Even 20-30 minutes allows new brain cells to grow
  2. Sleep at least 7-8 hours for optimum brain function
  3. Get out in Nature
  4. Get out of your comfort zone to boost creativity
  5. Use quick, active rest techniques
  6. Pay attention to your body clock
  7. Take breaks or you'll make mistakes
  8. Enjoy sex and grow more memory cells


"Treat your brain as the creative, wondrously renewing center of your mind and it will treat you well."  Change your brain...change your life.

The key to #8 is Enjoy GREAT sex. That's why I'm working on TantraXO this weekend.

Relax Today, Spend Time Dreaming...

craig daniels's insight:

Tune-out and spend some time dreaming today, it just might relax you. We all need daily time away from being plugged in, sometimes it can feel like the computer or smartphone is plugged into us and there is no escape.

Take a walk, breathe deeply and relax.
