Maximizing Productivity: The Power of Brain Health for Athletes and Business Professionals



Maximizing Productivity: The Power of Brain Health for Athletes and Business Professionals


June is Brain Health Awareness Month, a time to focus on the importance of brain health!

The brain influences everything from our thoughts and emotions to our physical actions and overall well-being. Ensuring optimal brain health is crucial for maintaining cognitive function, emotional balance, and a high quality of life.



3 Areas In Life To Improve Brain Health

This can be done daily to maximize your health and longevity!


MOVEMENT

Movement is a powerful tool to lower the activity of the nervous system so that not only can your body calm down limiting stiffness and tightness and improve functional movement but also lower stress in the brain for better focus, and clarity.


PERFORMANCE

When we think of performance of the body we associate it with increased muscle strength and energy.  For the brain we associate with conductivity and memory.  One component many people don't know about is how to structure their routine to increase BDNF (Brain Derived Neurotrophic Factor) to improve the efficiency, brain fitness, and health of the brain.


RECOVERY

Recovery is the most powerful tool for the body when it comes to anti-aging and body repair.  And it's no different for the brain.  Just like we do intermittent fasting to detox the body you can do glycolysis to clean out the brian.   Also plugging into recovery devices such as the hyperbaric chamber speeds up the process to deliver results faster!


Just as we invest in physical fitness, it's equally important to focus on brain fitness. Did you know…

  • Cognitive decline is not an inevitable part of aging. The brain can continue to grow new neurons and form new neural connections well into later life, especially when engaged in stimulating mental activities.

  • Chronic stress can shrink the brain’s prefrontal cortex, responsible for memory and learning, but mindfulness and meditation can counteract this effect and promote brain health.

  • During deep sleep, the brain's glymphatic system clears out toxins that build up during the day. Poor sleep can disrupt this process and increase the risk of neurodegenerative diseases.
