Feeling sluggish, tired, blah, brain-dead? The best way to curb these Debbie downer feelings is to flood your brain with some cognitive boosting brain nourishment!! Step away from the coffee and other stimulants, and nourish that brain! Here are some easy and healthy ways to snap out of that funk!
WALNUTS Walnuts are packed with Omega 3’s which are vital for proper cognitive function and also lowers depression. They are full of antioxidants, amino acids, manganese, copper, folic acid, vitamin E, and especially argenine, an amino acid that plays a big role in cell division and protein synthesis. All of these nourish your body and blood that travels to your brain to nourish and energize. Ever notice how walnuts look like brains? Mother Nature knows best! (there are other foods that look like the parts of the body they’re great for, but that’s for a later post)
SPIRULINA is one of the best green Superfoods that you could put in your body. It is a complete protein, that is it contains all 8 essential amino acids that your body relies on through diet. This superfood is proven to boost brain health, nourishing your cells, facilitates in protein synthesis, and helps bind to and eliminate heavy metals that could be giving your brain fog and low energy. You can find these in tablets, or in powder form to add to smoothies and other recipes.
YOGA is AAA-MAZING for stimulating circulation and oxygen to your brain. Especially if you have a sedentary lifestyle, your brain could probably use some additional circulation. My favorite moves for a quick pick-me-up are downward dog, triangle pose, plow pose and bridge pose.
