A sharp mind can keep you healthy

Solving the secret of a lifespan and a sharp mind is easier than you can visualize.

FIVE GUIDELINES FOR A SOUND MIND

  1. Stressed yourself to think of a detail or date? Don’t spin your wheels; look up for the solution. Reminding yourself of the right response will help you hang on to information.
  2. Studies show working in 25 to 30 minutes bursts followed by a five-minute break improves productivity by reducing continuous distractions.
  3. An efficient tactic to learn something is to teach it to someone else. Transforming the product into your own words helps fresh knowledge take root.
  4. Formulate a quiz after going through a chapter or hearing a speech. Testing yourself fortifies neural pathways and yields better retrieval means for memorizing.
  5. Cramming is a temporary solution. To develop long-term memory, wait two or three days between study periods – a trick intellectual investigators call the “spacing effect”.
