You may not be able to “hack” your brain like a computer and make it do or know things instantly, but it is still the most powerful machine that exists and there are some little tricks to ensure it stays vital, sharp, and awake.
Today, COGNITION by ORGANO brings you a series of tips you may want to try to make your daily life even better, whether it is at work, home, or your business.
1. Learn faster using your motor system
Neuroscientists have demonstrated that when you want to learn something new, using your motor system (writing, moving) can help to increase the engagement and retention of the information. For example, if you’re learning a new language, chances are that you remember all words or rules you’ve written, better than the things you don’t. Give it a try!
2. When stuck, do something else
Want to be more creative? Need to find a solution? Instead of sitting and focusing or stressing about it, leave it and do something entirely different! Studies show that changing activities gives your brain more space to create and find connections where you wouldn’t think it’s possible. That’s why some of our best ideas sometimes come when we are in the shower.
3. Gain confidence by putting some perfume/cologne
Your brain and your senses are a powerful match for success! Researchers made an experiment with men in which they found that when you apply a fragrance that ignites positive feelings, they felt better about themselves and act more confidently. So, next time you want to feel like a boss, instead of just doing a power pose, apply your favorite fragrance and conquer the world.
4. Place objects in unusual places to remember things
If you’re having issues remembering to do things, maybe creating a little disorder can help you out! Putting things out of place will get your attention and remind you of doing that thing that was slipping your mind. It doesn’t have to be big, for example, you can leave a piece of cutlery in your bedroom or car to “invoke” that to-do list item each time you see it. Once you’ve done the task, bring the item back to the place it belongs.
This one is a no-brainer. Creating mindfulness and learning to breathe and be “in the moment” is important for your brain. Working memory, after all, is about letting information flow through your brain freely and without creating any sort of stress. When you meditate, that form of information is regulated and moves with ease, instead of going many places in a hectic manner.
