Shape Up Your Mind

Getting fit isn't just about exercising the body, it should also be about exercising the mind.

When you keep your mind in shape, research suggests you live longer, live happier, live successfully, and live with greater intelligence.

So, here are a few tips to help you shape up your mind to enjoy the greatest benefits ...

1) Exercise your mind everyday by immersing yourself in something new. Try new experiences. Listen to different types of music. Experience new sensations. Visit places you haven't visited before. Your brain's neurons react positively to fresh stimulus.

2) Increase your intelligence. You're not born a genius; what you focus on can make you a genius. Learn how to radically improve your IQ and enjoy the benefits of honing a genius mind!

3) Your mind needs relaxation and reflection time to safeguard mental health. Make sure you 'switch off' everyday to rest your brain. Take a walk in the park. Sit by the river. Turn off your computer and phone. Relax! Downtime is crucial to your well-being.

4) Feed your mind with Sonic Vitamins by listening to special sounds that will shift your brainwave patterns into positive and beneficial ways of thinking.

5) Eat nutritiously so that your mind and body gain all the nutrients needed for optimum health and well-being. A balanced diet should ensure you have all you need but take a multi-vitamin and mineral every day for added benefit. Also, make sure you drink several glasses of water each day to keep the mind and body hydrated.

6) Your brain loves a new challenge. Try Speed-Reading or participate in regular quizzes or puzzle-solving activities.

7) Move your body! When you exercise by engaging in any cardiovascular activity such as walking, running, swimming, cycling, dancing or aerobics, you also increase the flow of blood and nutrients to your brain. This also helps release feel-good endorphins and provides the ultimate natural high.

Your mental health and well-being is important to your happiness and success so keep your mind in shape to enjoy life to the full.

Be the genius you were born to become!
