Today’s Solutions: December 08, 2023

Let’s take a look into the health of the organ responsible for our thoughts, movements, and consciousness. So, how do we take care of our body’s most vital component? The brain is a circadian organ – meaning it follows a natural biological clock – therefore it makes sense that maintaining a routine is critical for its health.

Here are routine three tips you can easily incorporate into your life for optimizing brain health.

Maintain a bedtime

Keeping a steady sleep cycle ensures your brain rests and replenishes effectively. Sleep is one of the most important things for your brain health, helping clear abnormal proteins and consolidate memories, which boosts overall memory and functioning.

Exercise routinely

We all know exercise is vital for our health, but did you know the time you exercise also makes a difference? Studies show exercising around the same time every day can help keep your body balanced. This can be as simple as taking a morning walk when you wake up or hitting the gym around the same time after work each day.

Eating on a schedule

Eating healthy food is critical for brain health, but so is when you eat it. Planning meals around a relatively steady schedule can help your body and mind remain in synch and receive the nutrients it needs to power through the whole day.

You don’t have to become a human alarm clock to keep your brain running smoothly. You can still enjoy an occasional lazy morning or midnight snack. Just remember to consider how volatile your daily schedule is. Working in small habits like meal prepping and turning your phone off 30 minutes before bed can help you establish a steady routine to help your brain stay organized and balance periods of rest and activity.
