your cognitive functioning.

The following are a compilation of a few pointers that can help to fight off cognitive decline:

Be active: In order to boost cognitive functioning you need to engage yourself in physical activity as often as you can. Working out boosts your brain health and promotes the development of new brain cells which in turn improve cognitive functioning. Furthermore, staying active also helps to alleviate stress and depression which consequently leads to a healthier brain.

Learn to manage stress levels.  Chronic and excessive stress produces the hormone cortisol which has been shown to damage the brain and can eventually lead to memory associated conditions such as dementia and amnesia. So when you are stressed it is normal to suffer from memory lapse and have difficulty concentrating on things or learning new things.

Be mindful about what you eat. Enjoy all the healthy, nutritious foods that nature has to offer starting from fruits and vegetables. Additionally, supplement your diet with green tea as it is a rich source of antioxidants which keep your brain cells from dying. Apart from that, add in foods that are good sources of omega-3 fats for instance salmon, fish oil, tuna, trout, walnuts, and flaxseed. Though keep in mind to never overeat on any of these foods as excess calories can cause cognitive impairment and memory loss.

alleviate stress!

Whether it’s your brain health or your overall wellbeing, as stated by many, laughter indubitably is the best medicine for both. Every emotion that we feel impacts only certain areas of our brain but when it comes to laughter it is known to engage several sectors of the brain all at once. If you are trying to find ways to fill your life with more laughter then have a look at the following recommendations:

Learn to laugh at yourself.

In order to truly learn to take yourself less solemnly, just pick a moment in your life where you were just too serious for no reason. Also, get in the habit of sharing your solemn, awkward moments and embarrassing episodes with your closed ones.

Spend time around perky, upbeat people that just love a good laugh.

Surround yourself with people that just love to share funny stories and have a good laugh about it. By sharing their moments they not get to laugh over the anecdote once more, but they also tend to feed off the humor that others find in it.

Fill up your office space or room with hilarious mementos.

To enjoy a little laugh every now and then, just put up some hilarious posters or bumper stickers in your office or on your refrigerator. Or maybe you could opt to use funny screensavers on your laptop. Surrounding yourself with some silly things can always make one laugh every now and then.
