Some people think we only use about 10 percent of our brains. This is a myth. Neurologist Barry Gordon explains in an interview that most of the time, your entire brain is active. There are various theories concerning how the myth came to be. But the truth is that daily choices influence the capacity of our brain activity. Try some of these for a brainpower up.

How Hacking Your Brain Works

Research demonstrates that the brain’s condition and functionality, once determined at a baseline by genetics, is determined by the functions it undergoes. The brain is adaptable and susceptible to change.

Consider Brain Training

One approach to strengthening the brain is the idea of brain training, which is said to quicken reflexes, increase concentration, and reduce stress. While each person is different and brains are both unique and complex, typical responses to brain-changing share a commonality.

Brain training may help to strengthen cognitive abilities by improving neural pathways. This makes it a viable option for those wanting to reduce their likelihood of developing cognitive declines or disease.

How Brain Training Works

The logic of brain training can help us to understand how the brain may be improved by performing specific tasks related to learning new things.

The following are proactive examples that cover cognitive exploration, bodily care, cognitive exercises, and challenges. As well as practice reducing exposure to potentially harmful things for the brain.

  • Get adequate rest
  • Practice beneficial nutrition
  • Explore your thoughts
  • Be active
  • Mix up activities
  • Practice exercising memory
  • Read
  • Write
  • Learn new movements
  • Learn a new language
  • Sleep with your phone away from you

There are endless ways to incorporate this logic into mundane tasks with the intent of improving brain function. It’s all about practice and intention.
