Eat these 13 brain-boosting foods: walnuts, coffee, fish, spinach, olive oil, flaxseed, mussels, dark chocolate, Greek yogurt, asparagus, peppermint, and oranges.
Challenge Yourself. This way is to force you think.
Switch up your news source. Reading makes you develop concentration, which is crucial for healthy aging.
Ward off depression. Exercise helps balance the chemical cocktail but mood dishorders can be the result of chemical imbalance in the brain.
Know what's normal memory loss. Age is faster than other brain parts.
Move to remember more. Brain is to also handle memories. You can have a year of regular aerobic exercise that can up the size of an adult’s hippocampus by 2 percent.
Strength train. For instance strength training for 60 minutes, three times a week for six months!
Drink Up. Do not skip your coffee. Just limit yourself to one cup 30 minutes before you need the boost. The effect can linger up to 6 hours. But don’t drink too much- 4 to five cups a day could hurt your cognitive performance.
Turn up the Jams. Listening to music at work can lead to increase cognitive performance.
Chew Gum. A study said students who chewed gum a few minutes before a test scored better than those who didn’t. The boost in brainpower could come from a neural arousal that chewing can bring about.
Looks like all those ways are prety easy to do. Let's do it regularly. Wait, did you think this research missed other ways that you might know? Please share and comment.
Everybody has 24 hours a day. With many things to do, can we really make time for both heading to gym and preparing meals? Or do you sacrifice one thing for another?
The recent study conducted by Rachel Tumin analyzed more than 112,000 American adults who were surveyed about their activities over a 24-hour period. The result found that about 16 percent of men and 12 percent of women said they exercised that day. On average, women spent 44 minutes to prepare food and nine minutes for exercising, while men spent 17 minutes preparing food and 19 minutes exercising.

Did you know that the Harvard School of Public Health and the University of Washington found that fish can make you live 2 years longer?
Here is the secret:
The study explained that fatty acids like Omega 3s are able to build cell membranes, resolve inflammation, and affect our genes. Dariush Mozaffarian from the Harvard School of Public Health says that fatty, oil fish like salmon, herring, anchovies, and trout are the most densely packed with Omega 3s.
Other studies also found Omega 3s functions to lower heart rate and blood pressure, and help your heart relax.
So if you don’t eat fish, try to eat now once or twice a week. By doing so, you get two benefits at once: nutrition for your body and live longer!
