Or, you can’t recall the artist who sings that song you heard and liked.
How about where you put your keys?
It’s not your fault. Like a computer’s hard drive, our brain stores everything we see and do…
So it’s no wonder that our memories fail and our ability to think and reason fogs up with age.
The Inner Workings of Your Brain
When it comes to short-term memory, our brains are only able to hold about 7 pieces of information for just a few minutes.
Unfortunately, things tend to get worse the older you get.
That’s because the hippocampus (the area of your brain responsible for moving information from short-term memory to long-term) loses its functionality as we age.
By age 80, some folks have lost about 20% of the connective nerves in the hippocampus.
But, what if I told you that you could upgrade your brain power and memory almost as easily as you upgrade a computer?
Your Brain-Version 2.0
If “geeks” can throw in some higher capacity memory sticks and clean out old, broken files that can slow a computer’s performance to a frustrating crawl…
Then we can basically do the same thing for our mental performance.
Because the truth is, your brain isn’t much different.
In fact, you can boost your brain’s performance and increase memory by simply keeping it clear and enhancing your internal memory with some surprising all-natural remedies and techniques.
See, your brain is a powerful organ. I’m sure you’ve heard that we only use about 10% of our brains throughout our lives.
Just ask anyone who’s suffered a stroke or a traumatic brain injury. Often, their speech is affected, their motor skills possibly damaged and they may suffer from memory loss…
There could be any number of deficiencies resulting from such an event.
So, we actually do use all of our brains at different times for different tasks. Just like the rest of the muscles in our bodies, the brain has specific functions for specific tasks.
And just like other muscles, they must be nourished and exercised to keep them functioning at the most optimal levels.
Here are a 5 secret things you can do that will flex your mental muscle, increase your memory (long and short-term), and boost your overall brain capacity so it works like a high-capacity supercomputer!
This may seem like a no-brainer, but many people don’t immediately think of physical exercise as a means of fortifying the mind.
Truth is, your brain uses oxygen to stay healthy so it can process and recall information more easily and with greater efficiency.
Exercise gets your blood flowing and blood carries oxygen to your brain… enough said!
Secret #2: Does Something Smell Fishy to You?
It’s all about the Omega-3s.
Omega-3 fatty acids are increasingly recognized as healthy — but they’re particularly good for your brain.
Your best source for this brain tuning superfood is cold water fish like wild caught salmon, tuna, herring, mackerel, and trout.
Omega-3s are so good for you they may even have the power to knock out the risk of Alzheimer’s.
Don’t care for fish? No problem. You can take a natural fish oil supplement or grab a handful of pumpkin seeds, walnuts, or soy beans.
The Three Stooges may have used this line as a gag, but they were on to something.
Learning, memory, critical thinking, and creativity are all enhanced by a good night’s sleep.
In fact, during the deepest slumber, the most crucial memory-enhancing actions take place… the cells and the nerves of your hippocampus are soothed and refreshed.
Secret #4: The One that Mom Loves!
Your mom probably told you to eat your veggies… and she was right!
Consuming more fruits and vegetables is nature’s perfect recipe for nourishing your brain.
Antioxidants found in brightly colored fruits and veggies are like your brain’s army defending cells against attack by… air-born pollutants, too much stress, junk food, and even thinking negative thoughts on an ongoing basis.
Going out of your way to exercise your senses is a great way to expand your mind and keep your brain sharp and running the way it was made to run…
At 100% capacity!
When you relate the things you do or learn while exciting your senses, then your brain will automatically create vivid memories of those activities.
These memories are more easily recalled because there’s a deep connection that brings them to life.
These are just a few ways you can boost your brain power and a great start to make your brain work like a high-capacity supercomputer…
The way to literally become a “muscle head” is to nourish, exercise, and fortify your mind every day.
Upgrade your “personal computer” starting today… keep it healthy and strong and it will serve your highest and best interests for life.
