Want To Get Better Brain Function For Life? Here’s How.

Get Better Brain Function For A Lifetime! Here's How.

Do you want your brain to perform at its best, in the present and in the future? How can you achieve this? Researchers at the Massachusetts General Hospital conducted a study of 17 “superagers,” seniors who have the brain function of 20 year olds. The scientists searched for key differences between superager brains and regular brains. And, if so, whether the findings could help improve brain function throughout one’s lifetime.

Yes, there were differences and, yes, they found ways to boost brain function. Superagers brains were bigger in regions where the normal brains were smaller. Surprisingly, the areas weren’t associated with mental reasoning but, rather, linked to emotion.

How do you stimulate the emotional regions? Well, it’s not by reading a sad novel or getting angry. It’s by challenging yourself until you are outside your comfort zone, then you have to push past this stage. Interestingly, it can be either a physical like a strenuous hike or a mental effort like solving a difficult puzzle.

So what are some ways to challenge yourself?

  1. Learn an instrument – set a deadline for when you’ll perform a song in front of your family, friends or peers
  2. Study a new language – plan a date to read a book or to speak with a local in that language
  3. Participate in Tough Mudder – or an equally physically challenging activity that will take you past your comfort zone. Eg. Cross Fit, cycling
  4. Take up meditation – sign up for some classes or read a book and then practice for longer periods day after day

Using Fit Brains for just 5 minutes a day can help keep your brain challenged and engaged! Challenge your brain with Fit Brains now.

How To Get Someone To Fall & Stay In Love With You

Make Them Fall In Love With You

Are you going to be one of the 61.8% people who celebrate Valentine’s Day with your loved one? Whether you’re in love or not, your feelings stem from your brain and not your heart. Yes, that’s right. On average, it takes the human mind 1.5 to 4 minutes to determine attraction.

The 3 Stages of Love

Lust

The first stage is fired by oestrogen and testosterone in both genders.

Attraction

This second stage of love is sparked by 3 neurotransmitters: dopamine, adrenalin and serotonin. Ever had your heart race, your palms sweat and your mouth go dry when attracted to someone? You can thank adrenaline for that. Dopamine controls the reward and pleasure center of your brain and has been linked to devotion, focus and addiction. It can make you think “This One’s Perfect”. And, serotonin makes you lose your appetite and day-dream about your loved one all the time.

Attachment

This last phase is driven by 2 key hormones oxytocin and vasopressin which leads to long-term love. Oxytocin, the ‘cuddle hormone’ cements bonding, comfort and intimacy when the intense passion wears off. Vasopressin also facilitates commitment.

Speaking of love, we bet you’ll find our fun smart brain games irresistible – we have the most and widest variety on the market. Our games challenges all key brain areas including memory, logic, concentration, visual-spatial and thinking speed. Plus, we’re the only brain trainer that challenges both cognitive and emotional intelligence.

Brain Hacks To Keep Your New Year’s Resolutions

reach your goals and find success

As the end of January looms around the corner, will you be one of the 58% of people who will stick to their New Year’s resolutions after the first month? According to the Statistic Brain Research Institute, more 90% of us break them. It’s not just in North American where resolutions fail but it happens all across the world, thousands of resolutions are broken every year.  

Why is that and how can you beat the insurmountable odds?

Most of us find it difficult to stick to resolutions because we need willpower. And, we only have a finite amount of it as it gets used up throughout the day. Think about all the choices you have to make: salad or chocolate, drink or run and so on. A study conducted by Stanford University divided a group of undergraduates students into those who had to remember a 2 digit number and those who had to remember a 7 digit one. And, then, they had to take a quick walk and they were given a choice between cake or fruit. Can you guess the results? The ones who had to remember the shorter number were half as likely to choose the cake.

So wait. How does this knowledge help with resolutions? Willpower is like a muscle, the more you use it, the stronger you use it. Keeping this in mind, here are some ways to hack your brain to maintain your resolutions:

1. Choose Just 1 Goal

Don’t overwhelm your brain. Choose the one thing that you want to change the most. For example, I’ll challenge my brain by playing Fit Brains’ games.

2. K.I.S.S Keep It Simple 

Break down the resolution into one easy, small task. Then, it will be more simple for you to make it a habit. It typically takes 45 days to create a habit. So, if we use the example above, a simple task could be I’ll play Fit Brains’ games for just 5 minutes per day. And, here’s a bonus, our games are fun which leads to our third tip.

3. Make It Fun

You’re more likely to stick to your goal if you enjoy doing it.  Think of ways to make your change as fun as possible.

3. Make Yourself Accountable

Write it down and/or tell your friends, family and colleagues. There is mounting proof that your social group can significantly affect your behavior. So you can use your social network to receive positive support.

4. Focus On Your Wins

Give yourself rewards and positive feedback to improve your likelihood of success. Research by the University of Chicago Booth School of Business, published recently in Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin, reveals that immediate rewards are strongly linked to achieving a long term goal. And, you know what else? The study found that immediate rewards were more effective than long-term delayed ones.

It’s not too late to make a resolution or to create a new one! If you think about it, is there anything more important than challenging your brain? Make 2017 your best year yet! Fit Brains’ games challenges all areas of your brain including memory, logic, concentration, visual-spatial and speed of thinking. Plus, we’re the only brain trainer that challenges both cognitive and emotional intelligence. If that’s not enough to convince you, we have the most and widest variety of fun smart games on the market.
