If your brain is dragging, then it might be time to jump start it to peak performance. Here are some easy tips on how to do it.

For whatever reason, your brain might be dragging. And, we know that can be the perfect storm to failure. I usually just need a nap to re freshen things up. But, according to Men’s Health, it might just be time to take your brain to a mental health club.

Here are some easy tips on how to tweak your brain:

Chew Gum
Chewing gum raises your heart rate and helps with short term memory recall. Why? Either the faster heart rate delivers more O2 and glucose to the brain, or saliva triggers a surge of insulin, stimulating learning and memory receptors.

Listen to elevator music
The “Mozart effect” refers to the boost in spatial reasoning power caused by listening to one of his piano sonatas.

Do brain exercises
This will extend your dendrites, the antennae of your brains neurons.

Here’s two exercises, one of the right (artistic) and left (logical) sides of the brain.

Right Brain: Arrange 5 toothpicks into the numeral 5. Then rearrange them into the number 16, without breaking any.

Left Brain: find the proverb in this string of vowel-less letters: RLL NGSTN GTH RSN MSS

Answers to the Brain Quiz — Right Brain: Make Roman numerals, XVI. Left Brain: A rolling stone gathers no moss.

Good luck on sharpening your brain to peak performance!
