Start your morning off right with these science-backed tips to help maximize your brain performance throughout the day:
Enjoy a cup of green tea. Green tea boosts cognitive performance by increasing the brain’s connectivity, which is essential to working memory. Studies have also found that green tea may reduce mental and physical stress.
2. Coffee works, too. One study showed that drinking coffee can lower your risk of developing dementia and Parkinson’s disease.
3. Embrace coconut oil. We know that fat is good for the brain, but not all fats are created equal. The fat that makes up coconut oil is an excellent source of ketones, a more efficient source of brain energy than glucose. Add coconut oil to your green tea or coffee to reap the benefits!
4. Go for a walk. Try to take the stairs or get off the bus a stop early to add some aerobic exercise to your morning routine. Aerobic exercise can reverse age-related brain shrinkage, thus helping reduce the risk of memory impairment.
5. Choose optimism. A recent study found that cynicism can increase your risk of dementia, so make an effort each day to see the glass half-full.
