Brains and computers both need to be ‘booted up.’ Naturally you boot up your computer by connecting it to a power source and turning it on. Most computers have some battery storage that allows you to use them even when not connected to a power source—at least for some period of time. Your brain needs to be booted up, as well. There are a several ways to boot up your brain: one is by eating breakfast that includes some healthier carbs (as you break-the-fast that has occurred during sleep). You can boot up the brain by engaging in some type of physical exercise. As the old saying goes Use it and move it or lose it. You can also boot up your brain through brain breathing that increases the amount of oxygen to your brain. Here’s the formula:
- Breathe in deeply to a count of four
- Hold your breath to a count of twelve
- Breathe out through pursed lips to a count of eight.
