Our brain functions well during adulthood and then it is believe that it declines which ultimately leads to lapse in memory and also brain fog during the sparkling years. A lot of things can hinder the functioning of brains, some of them are – exposure to toxins, chemicals, poor diet, lack of sleep, stress etc. Our memory center called hippocampus is able to grow new cells and also is known for regenerating throughout our life, even when are face has wrinkles all over. Natural tricks to improve memory are:
- Eat what is right: What we chose to eat plays a crucial role. Fresh vegetables are very much essential. Sugar and carbohydrates are not good for our brain’s health so one should avoid this. Vegetables containing antioxidants like broccoli, celery, curry and walnut protects our brain health and even stimulates the production of new brain cells. Some fats are beneficial for our brain. Coconut oil is one such fat, two tablespoons of oil and the work is done.
- Work one by one: This only means that we need to stop doing multitasking. Multitasking is actually slowing you down. As per research, we need about eight seconds to commit a piece of information to our memory. So, if you’re talking on phone and writing your grocery list while you keep your car keys, possibility is you will forget the place where you kept the car keys in the first place. If you find yourself trying to complete five tasks at once, stop yourself and focus your attention back to the task at hand. If distracting thoughts enter your head, remind yourself that these are only "projections," not reality, and allow them to pass by without stressing you out. You can then end your day with a 10- or 15-minute meditation session to help stop your mind from wandering and relax into a restful sleep.
- Good night sleep: The process of brain growth, or neuroplasticity, is believed to underlie your brain's capacity to control behavior, including learning and memory. Plasticity occurs when neurons are stimulated by events, or information, from the environment. However, sleep and sleep loss modify the expression of several genes and gene products that may be important for synaptic plasticity. So, we need to take the good night sleep which will surely help our brain to take rest, this will enhance our memories and will certainly improve our performance of challenging skills.
- Gut Health: The gut feeling we get, yes! The gut is nothing but our second brain and the gut bacteria transmits all the information to our brain via a nerve called vagus nerve. This nerve runs from your brain stem into your enteric nervous system. In simple terms, gut health can impact our brain function, psyche and behavior.
