Sometimes we just need to feel smarter. That’s achieved by actually being smarter! One of the smartest things I know of is to eat healthy, for your brain and your body.
Try these brain foods to help keep it healthy:
Cocoa beans are the base of chocolate, long before the sugar and milk. It’s been known for centuries that cocoa improves brain function, promotes cognitive skills and helps make a positive mood. It is rich in antioxidants, flavonoids, and other components that significantly improve brain function.
Raisins, hazelnuts, almonds, dried apricots all contain boron, which greatly improves hand-eye coordination, memory and attention span. Feel free to make a delicious mixture of these.
… which is exactly what I do ever day. I’m addicted to the above foods. Every day I sit down to the computer to do my work as an entrepreneur, whether it’s building local lead generation properties, which I learned from the stellar guys at propertiesproperty.com (check ’em out!), talking to business owners, or writing this blog. And every day I have an amazing, energy giving mixture of some dried fruits, nuts and dark chocolate.
This gives me physical energy and mental energy, not to mention keeps me focused just by the sheer fact that I have something delicious to eat. That act helps me focus even more than all these nutrients and antioxidants; those are just an added benefit.
Hey, it’s better than chowing down on Doritos! Which I used to do. And which are neither a good brain food nor a good body food.
Let’s get back to it, shall we?
