Tis the Season to Give for a Healthy Brain

The holiday season is here! Have you been naughty or nice? Will you make it on Santa’s list this year? We can all agree that getting gifts are fun but did you know gift giving makes your brain healthy and happy?

Gift Giving Leads to a Happy, Healthy Brain

Numerous studies reveal the positive effects of giving gifts. According to research by the National Institute of Health study, gift giving lights up brain regions linked to pleasure, social connection and trust, which leads to a healthy brain. The effects are more positive and stronger if your gift is meaningful. And, giving gifts lights up the part of the brain that makes us enjoy and like each other.

Another study by Harvard University and the University of British Columbia indicates that gift giving provides a sense of well-being and happiness. Furthermore, several other research findings indicate that generosity of all sorts, ranging from charitable donations to giving presents, leads to a happier, healthier brain.

The great news is we have a special holiday Gift promo just for you. For a limited time only, all Fit Brains Premium gift plans are on sale! Now you can gift more and spend less.

Be Thankful for a Healthy Brain This Thanksgiving! 

Fit Brains Be Thankful for a Healthy Brain

Thanksgiving is upon us! Did you know more people celebrate Thanksgiving in the United States than Christmas? It’s not hard to see why. It’s a holiday that’s filled with delicious food, family and friends, football and good cheer. Turkey, pumpkin pie and stuffing with loved ones? Mmm, yes please! That’s plenty to be thankful for!

We Want To Thank You!

More importantly, Thanksgiving is a day for gratitude. We here at Fitbrains are grateful that you’ve made us the #1 education app across 90 countries! We hope that you continue enjoying our app. And thank you for using our leading brain training program.

Gratitude Leads to Happiness

Did you know showing gratitude can lead to a happy, healthy brain? Being thankful creates dopamine and serotonin, which makes you feel good. It’s also a sign of emotional intelligence (EQ). The higher your EQ, the easier it is to feel grateful. Showing gratitude also creative a positive feedback loop within your social circle which leads to better relationships.

So what are you thankful for this Thanksgiving? Take a few moments to reflect upon your blessings including a healthy brain!

Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Fit Brains!

And, during your holiday, give your brain a boost with our fun games!

Your Brain. It’s what your Valentine wants most!

Your Brain In Love

Valentine’s Day. Love or loath it? Whatever your feelings are, they come from your brain and not your heart! That’s right, when you are attracted to someone it’s really driven by chemicals in your brain!  

At first, the sex chemicals testosterone and estrogen kick off what we call “lust” for someone.

A trifecta of brain chemicals affect your mood: dopamine, serotonin and norepinephrine. Dopamine, the feel-good, can’t-get-enough, neurotransmitter gets released during the initial ‘I met someone, ooh you’re kinda cute’ stage. The heart racing, butterflies in your stomach, palms sweating early dating phase is due to norepinephrine. It’s responsible for infatuation and excitement. Ever found yourself thinking about your love interest 24/7? That’s due to serotonin.

And when we fall in love, dopamine gets released and makes you crave your love interest. The part of the brain that lights up with cocaine addiction, also lights up with love. It’s no wonder star-crossed lovers are willing to die for each other! In fact, the love drive is stronger than the sex drive! Love is addictive but like drugs, the love high becomes less strong over time. That’s why people can also fall out of love after a few months.  If you do stay together you can thank the hormones oxytocin and vasopressin, which when released can make you feel more attached and committed to your partner.

Did you know your brain can also be one of your most attractive assets when you are trying to find that perfect partner?

For all you single men out there, most women want their other half to be equally intelligent, according to an annual Singles in America survey. No mimbos wanted. And, men also want a partner who’s smart and ambitious.  So, forget primping and priming for Valentine’s day. Instead, let your brain do its thing for you!

Need some extra brain stimulation to impress that Valentine?  If you need to give your brain some extra challenge and entertainment, try Fit Brains fun brain games!  And, you can take advantage of our special Valentine’s offer of 60% off a premium subscription, including gifts!

Move your Body, Boost your Brain, Have a Happier Holiday!

Chihuahua ReindeerWow.  It is hard to believe the holidays are upon us once again!  It is supposed to be the “happiest time of the year”, but none of us will deny that it can also be a stressful time of the year.  We feel pressure for it to be “perfect”.  We seek the “perfect gift”, the “perfect meal”, the “perfect house”, and the “perfect family time”.  But seeking perfection is stressful and, let’s face it, pretty darn impossible.  This year, relax, try to lower your stress levels, and give your brain a break by taking steps to just remember what it’s all about.  Enjoy the time with friends and family.  Be thankful for your health.  Enjoy making memories with those you love.  Focus on positive emotions and building memories this holiday season.  

Easy said, but how exactly do you do this?

We recommend getting in a little movement and activity instead of just sitting around on the couch (ok, we love that too and won’t deny you some quality couch time!)  Start a dance party, play a game of frisbee or football outside, build a snowman with the kids, break out the Wii, or take a brisk walk with your family.

In addition to just plain feeling good after being surrounded by all that food, did you know that movement can release higher levels of good chemicals in your brain such as dopamine?  You’ll activate feelings of pleasure in the brain.  Goodbye holiday stress and anxiety!  Dopamine can also help boost your memory (and hey, you’re working to turn this into a holiday you’ll WANT to remember!)  You’ll also have increased focus and attention (for better quality time with loved ones), and in general you’ll just be giving yourself an all-around brain boost!

Happy Holidays from all of us at Fit Brains!  We wish you health and happiness during this holiday season.
