3 Simple Things to do Everyday

1. Eat less sugar

Sugar has many negative effects on the brain. It can lead to lack of focus, mood instability, memory impairment, high stress levels and more. Limit sugar consumption and balance blood sugar by eating small amounts often, and ensuring meals contain fibre, good fats, and good quality, whole food protein. Excessive consumption of sugar can cause inflammation in the brain, and over a period of time can lead to memory loss. Glucose remaining in the blood for an extended period of time causes the brain to have less energy to function and retain memories.

Besides the negative impact sugar has on your brain, cutting out sugar will have many benefits for the rest of your body. 

2. Eat fruit and vegetables 

Vegetables are full of folate and vitamins, spinach and kale are linked to lowering the risk of dementia when you are older. Kale is a super food, packed with antioxidants and Omega-3 fatty acids that can help improve brain performance as well as memory.

Fruits such as oranges, peppers, guava, kiwi, tomatoes, and strawberries, contain high amounts of vitamin C. Vitamin C helps prevent brain cells from becoming damaged and supports overall brain health.

3. Allow yourself downtime

Downtime allows the brain to restore attention and motivation, refreshes productivity and creativity. Downtime enhances your problem-solving capability, and improves your well being and judgement. Making time for downtime is not just good for your mental health, it’s good for your business.
