Getting stuck during a project will reduce your productivity. Your boss is not going to like it, and you may lose your colleagues’ trust to get involved with you in the upcoming projects.
Psychological factors may be the cause of your slow thinking, but do not ignore your physical health. Your health profoundly affects your brain performance.
Eat Omega 3 sources
Omega three enables your brain to store more information by enhancing brain cells’ membrane regeneration and reducing the risk of inflammation.
Mild brain inflammation leads to depression, anxiety, and memory loss if left untreated. Coffee, cigarettes, and sugary snacks will only give you temporary satisfaction, but in the long run, can damage your brain.
Plants and animals provide Omega 3 in different types. EPA and DHA come from meat and fish, while Omega 3 from plants is in the ALA compound, which will transform to EPA and DHA in a small amount.
Omega 3 supplement is also available, but the natural ones are preferable and healthier. Cod oil is also an alternative if you are not into eating meat. Cod oil comes in capsules and bottles. The taste might not be appetizing, but consider the effect on your health.
Attend to your guts bacteria
The brain takes nutrition from your food. And your food is processed in your digestive system. Eating carelessly with little attention to choosing a fibrous meal will kill many of your guts bacteria.
Guts bacteria keep your body’s immune system intact. Taking too much sugar will nourish bad bacteria. The good ones feed on non-digestible fiber or the so-called prebiotic foods. This fact is the reason why taking vitamin, protein, and minerals are much better by eating from the natural sources.
But eating veggies all the way throughout the whole weeks can be frustrating. Take fiber supplement that comes in a powder form. Also pick the tasteless one, if you want to mix it with a smoothie or a dish.
Do the right exercise
Brain performance relies not only on the nutrition but also on the oxygen and blood flow. It means that the elasticity of your blood vessels and the quality of the blood circulation in your body affect your thinking.
Lungs and heart are the vital organs for blood circulation, and the best exercise for them is aerobic exercise. Aerobic exercise’s other name is cardio. Aerobic exercise enables you to maintain the heated metabolism condition for a while. Compared to anaerobic exercise, aerobic exercise is more stable and focused on endurance. Marathon, swimming, dancing, running on a treadmill, low-impact martial arts are the example.
