9 techniques to keep your brain smart
March 6, 2019
Having a good brain is like any skill that can be learned. but will be good or not depending on training If we take good care of the brain Quality of life will be good accordingly.
1. Practice deep breathing:
The brain uses 20-25% of the oxygen that enters the body. Practicing deep breathing is a good way to deliver good energy to the brain. Sit with your back straight to allow more oxygen to enter your body. If sitting for a long time You may find time to stand or walk to stretch your lungs to enlarge the lungs. Able to exhale 20% more oxygen into the lungs.
2. Meditate for 12 minutes a day:
after waking up Be mindful and meditate every morning for about 12 minutes a day to allow your brain to enter the phase of Theta waves. This is a super relaxing wave that makes the brain have Mental Imagery, able to visualize and be creative. (If you can't do it in the morning, do it before going to bed every day.)
3. Put your intention :
to concentrate or concentrate on anything It's like programming your brain that this is what happens during the day. The brain will adjust our behavior towards that goal. To succeed in things because the brain does not distinguish between what is actually done and what is imagined. So both are the same thing.
4. Drink water often :
The brain is made up of 85% water. Brain cells are like plants that need water. Without water, plants wither. If you don't want your brain cells to wither which results in slow data transmission Become a person who thinks slowly / doesn't think well each day, so you should drink water often.
5. Eat good fats :
Not many people know that the brain is a fat mass, which needs good fat to replace the worn out part. It is recommended to eat healthy fats during the day. Such as fish oil extract, ginkgo leaf, fatty fish like salmon, soy milk, multivitamins, primrose oil is good oil. that keeps cells hydrated As for vitamin C, it's refreshing to eat.
6. Laugh and smile often :
Smile or laugh often will contain endorphins. which is a message of happiness Ejaculation equals to induce a desire to love and wish for the good of others indefinitely.
7. Learn something new every day :
What's new here means things that happen in everyday life, like eating at a new restaurant, making new friends, reading a new book. Talk to your coworkers and learn how to do their job, for example, because learning more new things causes the brain to release endorphins and dopamine, which are learning substances. Encourages you to keep learning and creating. When you're happy, you can be creative.
8. Forgive yourself every day :
While not forgiving yourself, being angry with others, being angry with yourself, wastes your brain energy. forgive yourself This reduces the burden on the brain.
9. Write a note :
Practice writing thank you things. that happens each day in a journal, such as thank you for having a good family thank you for good health Thank you for having a career that makes you happy, etc., because writing good stories makes the brain think positive. along with the secretion of good chemicals help me sleep well It's easy to wake up to meditate. Be creative >>>
A story about a new era, a new era doctor who studies with the hope of health benefits. both physically and mentally It turns out that education in this field I have found things that the Buddhist religion has mentioned in the past .... such as the story that Mr. ANNO brought to acknowledge this. There are 9 techniques which are related to meditation. Basically, it can be said that 1-2-3-the rest is a matter of Dharma, such as number 6, item 8 .....it's true. This is Dharma practical dharma that dharma practitioners must take this advice into practice as a preliminary It's the foundation of a practitioner's practice.....isn't it?
But now, it's worth analysing. How did the doctor find it? Therefore, the technique in item 1 states that
Practice deep breathing: The brain uses 20-25% of the oxygen that enters the body. Practicing deep breathing is a good way to deliver good energy to the brain. Sit with your back straight to allow more oxygen to enter your body. If sitting for a long time You may find time to stand or walk to stretch your lungs to enlarge the lungs. Able to exhale 20% more oxygen into the lungs.
which is already a meditation practice for monks ......But the doctor knew further that it was about oxygen, about lungs, about internal organs. that can see the relationship with the breath which the Buddha's time Nobody knows ....The more modern doctors know about brain programming, and it's great....because everything seems to move according to its program.
I would like to come to the conclusion that this is the matter of breathing. to practice the deep breathing that the doctor had discovered way of meditation Let's practice like this. .....to understand that Originally, people never knew that we were breathing in. Is it really true (because I've never looked at my own breath)? ...in meditation to see the breath that enters through the nose
to be able to see whether it is a boat or an incoming line.......it will succeed....and then you will find that this person breathes in, the air reaches only the nostrils then turned back out It's just going in and out. This is it. It's too shallow .... Shallow like the doctor said..... You have to practice taking a deep breath ....which must be practiced. Therefore, it is called meditation practice....let's say the second step is to reach the throat. Slowly let it out....Step 3, go into the chest, then let it out. Step 4, go into the navel or the lower abdomen. And then let it come out......and the 5th step, the ultimate, not let the wind come out. So let's go out through the hair follicle.....that's it. Successful completion of prana .... and probably will get full oxygen as the doctor said.
but in Buddhism Not practicing meditation for health, but practicing for the mind, when we can make long winds gradually decrease and stop regularly, as the Anapanasati Sutta taught. The mind will gradually calm down and cool down. From this point, what you call the level of Apana Samadhi, you will attain the path......Try to practice breathing as your doctor recommends. Yes and keep getting longer up to the 5th level that tells or can reach the Asana Samadhi It's not a health problem, but a matter of nirvana, entering the world of nirvana. to meet the Arahants and all the Buddhas
It's a little further. It's about the breath. When practicing deep breathing, it reached the 5th level. The wind will go in and out through our follicles ... This is how we will be able to endure more water than the doctor said. Well, the doctor said that he can't starve for more than 3 days, if it's too much, he may die. Because the body is dehydrated...it has been tested. It's okay to be without water for up to 7 days and 7 nights. That's because he can take a deep breath. and the wind can go in and out through the hair follicle The wind brings coldness which is the water in the air itself, enters through the follicles by absorbing instead of eating and drinking through the mouth ....it seems If you don't drink water for 7 days, you won't die. But that's it. Water enters through the hair follicle instead. and after completing the course of prana, how many days, weeks or months you can starve .....This is about breathing. What the practitioner started as the doctor said was to take a deep breath.
1. Practice deep breathing: The brain uses 20-25% of the oxygen that enters the body. Practicing deep breathing is a good way to deliver good energy to the brain. Sit with your back straight to allow more oxygen to enter your body. If sitting for a long time You may find time to stand or walk to stretch your lungs to enlarge the lungs. Able to exhale 20% more oxygen into the lungs.
2. Meditate for 12 minutes a day: after waking up. To be mindful and meditate every morning for about 12 minutes a day ***** and then when you have mastered aimed at the path of the Lord Buddha That is the noble goal of life.
Exactly that..... Sit with your back straight to allow more oxygen to enter your body. If sitting for a long time May find time to stand or walk to stretch to make the lungs enlarge......***** Here I would like to say in meditation Once you have reached the level...by you have already reached the level of meditative propensity. and by this method of practicing long breath When it enters the standard, it will straighten itself....A body that originally looked bent, it will straighten itself..and become more glorious. ...Teachers will glance over here and say, 'Oh, it's straightened up. It has reached the level, but that's it. When practicing, practice sitting up straight like the doctor suggested. So that it's better to put a lot of oxygen in it.
