Prepare for what have the potential to be game-changers for you (and those you care to share these gems with!) when it comes to both befriending your brain to concentrate, and keeping it on track for longer periods!
And if I’m speaking your language, it’s definitely worth checking out the link below for more tips 1
So my first TOP TIP is to get good healthy sleep and to be practicing what you’ll hear called optimal sleep hygiene.
Yes, theories telling us to do this and do that can be marvelous.
However, what I’m finding to be the most effective is tailoring this process very specifically to your needs. If this is an area that you’ve had challenges with then do personally message me with your specific needs as I’m very happy to help you figure out the best next moves for you (I can definitely relate as for a few years I was definitely not sleeping very well – in particular after my mom’s death, and more recently whilst travelling for 5.5 years.)
What seems to be one of the effective pieces of the ‘sleep well’ puzzle is to measure it. For those of you who are Fitbit fans, Chris got me one for Christmas, and it’s definitely grown on me! One of the things that it can measure for us is the quality of our sleep and as I’ve been measuring it, it’s been changing for the better. Once I see that score I’m motivated to adjust and tweak my sleep hygiene routine and I’m noticing mainly positive results.
The second TOP TIP is to take regular breaks, in nature if we can. This is where we actually give our brains some rest.
Interestingly, even though I knew better, I used to slog away for hours, including through the night, when I was studying all those years ago at Osteopathic College.
More recently I’m studying again about integrative nutrition hormone health. This time around, I’m finding regular breaks are vital for helping my brain keep up and actually take things in. Deep breathing – in nature – is a booster for my whole body, including my brain, and I find it very grounding. Research shows us that there seems to be an endless list of benefits from plunging into nature (or even just dipping in a toe!)
Is this something you’ve found?
My third TOP TIP is to make sure that we’re eating and also hydrating well. This means adding in more whole foods, reducing the refined and added sugars, E numbers, and added chemicals.
Plus using effective Nutraceuticals has been found to effectively harness our brain function.
In fact, there’s one particular Nutraceutical that is a combo of several important micronutrients, and the clinical results are impressive. Even after the first dose, it’s been shown to increase the speed and efficiency of our brains. If that sounds like something you’d like to know more about then PM me. Having trialed this one personally for both myself and now many clients, the results are conclusive. Obviously, it’s not possible to promise any results, although the research and results I’ve seen are noticeable.
Until I see you on this week’s #alivewithFi, keep sharing your sunshine and I look forward to hearing from you 🙂
