Would you like to dramatically improve your mental performance within the span of one week? If your answer is “yes,” then keep reading.
My goal in this article is to give you three simple, practical, and easy to follow, holistic techniques that will help to significantly boost your memory, focus, concentration, mental clarity, and thinking skills just within seven days.
Here they are:
- Use these two powerful brain herbs.
I am speaking about Ginkgo Biloba leaf and Gotu Kola, which are known as the two most effective hers for improving mental function. No other herb helps increase cerebral blood flow (blood supply to the brain) like Ginkgo. Proper blood circulation to the brain allows for the cells of the brain to be properly oxygenated and nourished, which as a result, greatly enhances the power of your mind. Gotu Kola helps remove inorganic aluminum deposits from the brain, which are a big factor that contributes to the decline of mental abilities. The herb is one of the most effective brain toners and rejuvenators in the entire plant kingdom. Gotu Kola is actually what elephants graze on daily, and as you may know, their memory is superior to most other species. When these two herbs are combined together, they work harmoniously and wondrously to boost your memory, focus, concentration, mental clarity, and thinking powers. To prepare the tea, combine equal parts of each herb. Put one heaping teaspoon of the blend into a cup, cover it with boiled water, and allow it to steep for at least 20 minutes. That will assure that all of the herbs’ properties are properly extracted. Optimally, drink the tea three times a day. Because these herbs may slightly stimulate your system, you may want to drink your last cup at least three hours before bedtime.
- Perform this breathing exercise.
The goal of the following breathing exercise is to help deliver more oxygen to your brain, which, as mentioned earlier, is essential for optimal mental performance. This exercise is to be performed three times a day (you can actually do it right before or after you drink your tea, so it’s easier for you to keep track of it).
Here is how to do the exercise:
Through your nose, take as deep of a breath as you possibly can using your diaphragm muscle to expand the lungs. Then, block off you throat to prevent the air from being released. Hold the air in your lungs and by moving your diaphragm muscles, circulate the air throughout the organs. Visualization can also be very helpful in this exercise. Use your mind to imagine the air being distributed to every part of your lungs, especially the lower areas. Those areas, due to improper breathing, are greatly neglected in most people leading to a mucus build-up which prevents us from utilizing our lungs and their function to full capacity.When you feel the urge to exhale, begin releasing the air through your mouth and nose, as fast or slow as you wish. Repeat this process five to ten times.
- Make these dietary changes.
For seven days, consume fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and herbs, and eliminate all processed foods from your diet. No refined sugars, gluten, or animal products should enter your body. Also, preferably all of your dishes should be raw (uncooked).This temporary dietary change will help your body eliminate impurities from your digestive system (which is crucial for optimal mental performance), purify your bloodstream (which will help improve blood circulation and the delivery of vital building blocks to your cells and tissues), and provide your body quality ‘fuel’ that will not only positively impact your brain but every organ and bodily function.
After only a couple of days of applying these three techniques, you will notice your mind get clearer, lighter, sharper, and quicker. Your concentration/focus will be improved and so will your memory and other mental faculties. If you are someone who studies a lot, or whose daily activities require a heavy use of the mental faculties, you will find this especially beneficial.
