10 TIPS FOR TREATING YOUR BRAIN.

  1. Take regular stretch breaks. Human brain needs a lots of oxygenated blood to work well. Just standing up releases an extra 20 %.
  2. Always give the big picture first. Remember your brain is constantly trying to make connections, so giving the big picture in advance allows it time to make sense of things and gather together all it knows about a particular subject, even for someone who loves to focus on the details.
  3. Avoid talking at people for long period of time. Your mind can only absorb a certain amount of new data and unless the speaker is very talented it will switch off after 20 minutes or so.
  4. Vary the ways you provide information. Our minds are all different, some preferring visual, some auditory, and some the kinesthetic experience of getting up and “doing” something.
  5. Think about concentration. While it is helpful to stay on task when you are flowing well, regular short breaks every 20 or 30 minutes often help the mind to remain engaged.
  6. Break big things down into accessible bits. Your brain finds it easier to deal with big issues when they are broken down into smaller elements.
  7. Use humor. There is evidence that when you laugh your brain releases chemicals called endorphins that act as relaxants.
  8. Make sure you get enough sleep. While each person’s sleep requirement is different, a good night’s sleep for many people involves more than eight hours. When your brain is tired it does not perform well.
  9. Keep well hydrated. Your brain needs plenty of water for its “electronic circuitry” to function effectively.
  10. Don’t create fear in others if you want them to perform well. Under stress led our brains to think only of survival and higher-order thinking stops happening effectively.
