- breath trough your nose : The benefits of nasal breathing are associated with how this breathing purifies, heats, moistens, and pressurizes the air. These changes to the air increase oxygen absorption by approximately 10-15%.

- exposure to as much sunlight as you can get (without getting "bourned") , improves circadian alignment, sleep and mental health

- listen to music , certain brain areas get activated whilst it. also musical training over time has been shown to increase the connectivity of certain brain regions

  • Brain training - also classical advice and a hot science topic as some scientists beliefe you just get better in the tasks , my opinion is if the brain gains neuronal connections , its a very good choice/thing. the average brain starts to slowly reduce unused parts at an age of 25!

  • Exercise physically - a healthy body keeps your mind running. dont try to overuse alcohol (healthy amount: 0,5 l each day on 5 days a week) and keep distance from drugs even if you think they provide you a brighter sight of how things are, they change your neuronal connections

 -- 10 minutes a day running will help to release neuronal builders and strengthen your allready existing neurons

  • Dont use preperates to cover brain or health needs! some of them are unhealthy cause they provide to much of a normaly healthy ingredient making you sick at the end
  • Dont eat high carbs! Things in your brain cant work nicely when the body produces to much insulin caused from carbs
  • dont drink cow milk, it blocks folate receptors and decreases methylation, which are improving your neuronal build (neurogenesis) , Goat’s and sheep’s milk products are usually fine—unless you have an autoimmune disease.

Dont multitask, if you excluded all unnecessary distractions, you can enter the highly effective flow state. motivate yourself when imagining why you do something. Theres no reason to think "i cant" , instead think "i dont". failure is the key to sucess , learn from it

  • Plan your work : we are most productive in little time frames, this covers eg learning. here are two examples[1]
  • 25 minute , followed by 2 minute break , repeat 3 to 4 times until you choose a larger break of around 15 minutes
  • 90 minutes , followed by 10-15 minute break

this also helps when doing things you dont like or if you are procrastinating - brain sends a pain reaction 20 minutes of time , if you overcome that period you will teach yourself its not that bad.

surprisingly the same time span (20 minutes) is needed to decrease your focus, breaks will help you getting new information processed

Just like muscles, the brain needs regular training to stay in good condition. Math, puzzles, riddles, etc could be a way out.

Manage your expectations

We all need uninterrupted work time every day, regardless of our role. Unbroken work makes us more motivated and focused. Yet uninterrupted calendar blocks are hard to design into a schedule.

We can't productively attend to meeting-heavy days while also spending hours on uninterrupted work time. We need to manage our expectations about what we can accomplish.
