Yesterday was the second public launching of Mind Master Training and I would like to thank all of you who came out to visit me at ‘Your Wellness Day Fair’ in Burnaby. It was truly an honour to take part in Mental Health week and to be so well received by the public and industry professionals. The continuous stream of interest confirms that mental fitness is very important to many of us, so here are 3 more strategies for staying sharp:
1. Maintain stress. Too much stress takes away from our ability to work effectively and make good decisions. Be aware of when you are feeling overloaded and take steps to reduce your stress.
2. Eat healthy! Make good choices so that your brain continues to work at its very best. I choose foods rich in Omega 3 essential fatty acids such as wild salmon and foods rich in antioxidants such as deeply hued fruits and vegetables.
3. Make sure you get adequate sleep. Sleep allows the brain to recharge, repair and even form new connections!
Although I am not a nutritionist or an expert on sleep, the last two tips are well researched facts that work very well for me. In addition, they offer the added benefit of no harmful side effects and who can argue with that?! We have nothing to lose and everything to gain by ensuring that our minds stay sharp!
