October 13 marks the celebration of #NationalTrainYourBrainDay! By tapping into their brain’s potential, Brewer-Hendley sales representatives allow our company to have some of the most educated oil specialists at your service!
To share the wealth of knowledge and to celebrate the beauty of brains, here are three ways to strengthen your brain.
1. Learn something new! By learning something new and practicing it, your brain will either change the structure of its neurons or increase the number of synapses between your neurons. This allows your brain to send and receive information faster. As a result, you learn things better!
2. Increase the strength of your focus. In the age of “now” it feels harder than ever to get anything accomplished. Start small and work your way up. Turn off all distractions and set a timer for 10 minutes. During the 10 minutes, commit to focusing only on the task (reading, writing, researching, etc.) without breaking pace. After the 10 minutes are up, take a 4-minute break before starting up again. Your ability to get things done depends on how well you can focus on one task at a time, whether it’s for five minutes or an hour. Over time, increase the duration you set on your timer to build up your focus endurance.
3. Develop your willpower. Cambridge Dictionary defines willpower as, “control exerted to do something or restrain impulses”. I’m sure many of us can relate to coming face to face with something that tests our strength of will, such as whether to eat the queso on your diet or going back on your word when you said you would leave work earlier to spend time at home. If you’ve caught yourself succumbing to temptation, fear not because will power is a mental muscle that you can train. Roy F. Baumeister, American social psychology professor, has suggested that one way to increase your power of will is to build up your self-control by exercising it in small ways. If your goal is to decrease clutter at your work desk, start by taking one folder on your desk and moving it to your filing cabinet. Repeat each day by moving one small item at a time. By accomplishing short term objectives, your able to establish long term habits that lead to routines and ultimately build your will!
