Mindset, Personal development, Positivity, Smarter Brain, Success
Increase Your Focus for Better Productivity In our lives today, we are busier than ever before.

Power of Repetition

Mindset, Personal development, Positivity, Smarter Brain
Repetition is a powerful tool that helps us learn and master skills. When someone takes piano lessons, they will be given a series of exercises to repeat. These tasks are usually scales and arpeggios. But, after the student masters these they are given more difficult exercises to practice. Learning a foreign language also requires repetition. By repeating unfamiliar words or using them in sentences, it will become more natural for the learner. People study the words, and they repeat them until they understand what they mean. In sports, we find repetition in drills, etc. Coaches give the players a series of drills to repeat until it becomes second nature. When the player masters the skill, they won’t even need to be told to use them. Coaches only need to help…

Visualize Your Goals

Mindset, Personal development, Positivity, Smarter Brain
When people visualize anything, it makes it much more likely for them to make it a reality. They see the vision in their heads and then take steps to make it happen. It’s how Thomas Edison improved the light bulb (he didn’t invent it as many believe). Edison did have a vision and stopped at nothing to see it through. Steve Jobs was another visionary, one who pictured how his products could help improve peoples’ lives. Visualizing your goals carries through on this same concept. You paint a picture of what you would like accomplished by a certain period. When you have that picture, you can determine what is necessary to implement it. Once you break down the steps to accomplish your goals, you can use other visualization tools to…

For a long time, it was believed that adults do not grow new brain cells. We know now that the brain can generate around 700 new brains cells, called neurons, a day.

Anti Aging, Meditation, Smarter Brain, Yoga
As people age, their brain’s lose weight and volume. These changes may start to occur in people as early as their mid to late 20s. Previous research has shown people who meditate to lose less brain mass over time than those who do not. In particular, research concluded people who meditated showed less of a decrease in their white brain matter. White brain matter acts as a connector and insulator for gray brain matter.
