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.

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

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.
