UNLOCK THE MYSTERY OF YOUR BRAIN
The human brain is one of the most mysterious organs in our body. Scientists keep learning new facts on how our brain functions but it still hides a lot of secrets.
The human brain is too complex to understand and which is why I want to share with you some of the brightest discoveries of the last few years in the field of Brain Research.
There are a few simple ways to boost your intellect, improve your brain power and it will surely surprise you!!
CHRONIC LACK OF SLEEP- ALZHEIMER
Scientists from a US University have found a convincing proof that a lack of sleep can worsen memory and cause Alzheimer’s.
During a full night’s sleep, brain cells remove toxic compounds which are dangerous for our brain.
If a person doesn’t get enough sleep, it has a devastating effect on their brain cells.
PROLONGED STRESS DESTROYS THE BRAIN
A decrease in memory and the inability to learn are some of the consequences that chronic stress is fraught with.
It also contributes to a person felling highly irritated, anxiety, tension and often being distracted.
LOVE & HATE- A LOT IN COMMON
Scientists have found out that love and hate originate in similar brain areas.
However, unlike hatred, love reduces the activity of the areas responsible for logical and judgemental thinking.
BRAIN IS SENSITIVE TO DEHYDRATION
Our brain comprises 80% of water. Therefore, even a moderate loss of fluid say about 2% reduces your concentration and vigilance leading to the deterioration of short-term memory and other cognitive abilities.
SUGAR- WORSENS YOUR MEMORY AND INABILITY TO LEARN
The abundance of fructose in the diet slows down your brain reducing the ability to learn, recollect the information and concentrate.
This is because sugar destroys the neural connections in the brain.
Scientists emphasize that industrially produced sugar is more harmful which are found in soft drinks, seasonings, sauces, and baby food.
However, Omega-3 fatty acids products such as fatty fish, nuts and fish oil remove the consequences of the disorder.
ROMANTIC LOVE & MATERNAL FEELINGS ARE VERY SIMILAR
It turns out that, according to the brain activity, romantic relationships and maternal feelings are very similar but there are differences as well.
Passionate love activates your brain immediately.
Anxiety and fear decreases and the feeling of euphoria increases the maternal love which activates the areas responsible for the formation of affection.
PAINTING- IMPROVES THE WORK OF YOUR BRAIN
A study showed that the painting and contemplation works of art improve the interaction between brain areas while slowing its aging.
Scientists found that the Painting Classes gave a stronger result than other classes.
READING- THE ULTIMATE WAY TO TRAIN YOUR BRAIN
Scientists have proved the process of reading trains the cognitive abilities of the brain.
It activates the brain areas that aren’t used at other times.
When we read, our blood enters the brain areas responsible for concentration and cognition.
It’s disappointing that this effect doesn’t occur when you watch TV or while playing computer games.
So what are you waiting for?
