The Supercharged Brain; The Gold Rules to Life

Brain-Power

A few things you can do in your life to make your brain really active and powerful. If you suffer from slow speech or tend to say “uhm” or “uhh”. a lot. Here’s some tips for those who want to supercharge your brain to optimize it’s capacity.

1.Running

According to some science by John Ratey a Harvard professor if you run a lot you encourage memory and enhanced cognition and in the process encourage brain cell regrowth. This neuro-biological process is equivalent to a sharp pencil and clean sheet of paper opposed to a dull one and dirty paper. High intensity interval exercise as it is known is best as an alternative. It also increases metabolism and promotes healthy appetite.

2.Reading

The more you read the more familiar and fluent you are with the language. Knowledge is power, reading is brain food and it exercises your brain and stimulates the brain and encourages positive endorphin in the brain. Which make you happy and think positive and constructively. Reading is also very therapeutic and allows you to calm down stress, emotions and anxiety.

3. Writing

This also allows you to be more familiar and fluent with the language. It allows you to communicate better in social instances and the language will come more naturally. Expressing yourself allows you to find a release for the stress in your life and vent. For those who suffer anxiety, emotions and stress writing is therapeutic.

4. Practice an Instrument

This not only encourages memory but in the practice of memory rather than just the increasing the potential of memory from running. The Flute, Violin, Piano, Guitar are my personal favorites. Classical music is said to promote growth and encourage constructive thinking. Memory, growth and promotion of thought in a study of how music effects plants is evident in the subconscious influence of music and the type of music you listen to.

5. Eating frequently and consistently

Eating in small potions many times a day will increase metabolism. Compounded with High intensity interval training or running will actually allow you to lose weight and encourage overall health.


I also have other practices I enjoy that gives other perks and attributes.. such as Sword training, Karate (mix martial arts).

6. Sword training

Makes me feel like I have an edge (excuse the pun) over everyone. It’s my security backup plan that allows me to establish that in danger I will be able to defend myself and get away. It keeps me sharp and accurate. It builds strong upper body strength and arms. I use a heavy bar to practice sword so when using a real blade it comes with ease.

7. Karate/Tai Chi/Mixed Martial Arts

The art of the empty hand. You won’t always have a weapon with you and this is the reason why some self defense and exercise with a martial art like Karate is necessary. Also allows you to have an upper hand in a fight to defend yourself so you can get away. The Katas (set of sequenced moves) allow you to familiarize and encourages memory in practice and potential  through motor memory in the muscles. This allows your body to react faster than thought during a fight or flight situation intuitively.

8. Meditation

One thing that I am trying to do but don’t do enough of is meditation. There are many health benefits to meditation in that it keeps you composed and strong in stressful situations. I have not yet mastered this practice yet but it will give you insight and understanding of the world around you.

Defiance; Root of the human spirit.

Defiance; This is the natural instinct that fuels a human spirit’s motivation. It is the power to resist being assimilated and losing your personal identity. It is the ability to say no to a bigger power that is in the wrong and change the world and make it right. Without this concept there is only apathy. Selflessness is only a virtue if you understand the wisdom of evil in greed and dangers of abundance. And the evil in greed is that it leads to the hoarding trend in life and that it instills a mentality that becomes a nature to continue to hoard. There must be a balance in all things you do and even have. If you are struggling with daily life and everything is a challenge, you are doing it right. Life is about exploring and trying new things. Expressing your true self the way you want to be seen while understanding with action comes consequence. Understanding this consequence allows you to hold back from any unintended desire to do things you shouldn’t. There is always a reason for everything and if it happens, it may just be the way the dice rolls and depending on how you look at it you could count yourself lucky or unlucky.

Hidden from sight for years it is the quality of vigor and consistency. There was always that one quality that i couldn’t understand that i really needed. And it starts when you are a kid where you did everything you wanted without hesitation. Defiance is healthy and if it wasn’t for this attribute we would crumble under everyday challenges. It allows us the building blocks to push forward and speak out loud. Public speaking is all about defiance where you need to raise your voice to be heard and to maybe sometimes speak over another in order to get your opinions out. Apologizing of course for doing so but you are priority in your life and if you don’t speak out you won’t have it the way you wanted it to be.

Commitment, life is about doing things and seeing things through. You stick with it until you get it or until the boat sinks. But all you got to do when that boat sinks figuratively is to get up again and try something different. Consistency, persistence and perseverance;  All these words lead to defiance and even though being defiant against the authorities is dangerous and wrong. Sometimes if you stand for something right and the system is wrong then you need to be defiant. Though again we all live in our own little world so sometimes we can be narrow and misunderstand situations so know that we can’t always be right. If you are the minority in the democracy ask why this is, maybe you’re really on the wrong side but also people may be misinformed on the other side. So be defiant and stick your neck out and hope you can pull through but know the consequence of your actions and opinions. If ever you are found on the wrong side (bad side) know that your actions will backfire and you reap what you sow so to speak. Baddies never get away with their crimes there is always a paper trail.
