How to boost your brain


Do you want to improve your mind in 2018? We have compiled the best methods to boost brain power, improve memory, build new neural connections, ignite learning, and enhance cognitive function.

Humans have brain plasticity, or neuroplasticity, which is the ability of the brain to change for better or worse at any age.
This flexibility of the brain plays a significant role in the development or decline of our brains, and how our distinct personalities are shaped.
Neural connections can be forged or severed, and gray matter can thicken or shrink. These changes reflect transformations in our abilities.
For example, learning a new skill can wire new neural pathways in our brains, while aging may weaken certain neural pathways that once existed and result in our memories not performing as well as they once did.
The American Heart Association/American Stroke Association have recently developed seven steps that aim to help individuals keep their brains healthy, from childhood into old age. They advise people to:
  1. get regular exercise
  2. eat a healthful diet
  3. maintain a healthy weight
  4. control cholesterol
  5. regulate blood sugar levels
  6. manage blood pressure
  7. quite smoking
