1. Get moving
It’s all too easy to become glued to your desk when working from home, especially if you don’t have a friendly coworker to remind you to get a coffee or take a break. We’d ordinarily work off some of this tension by going to the gym or swimming. According to recent research from the University of Queensland, moderate physical exercise boosted people’s cognitive performance by 5% for males and 14% for women weekly. Fortunately, there are a variety of basic workouts you can do at home or using common household items that can suffice. Exercise activities at home might include doing lunges indoors, using a bag of rice as a dumbbell, and following along with a video.
2. Eat a delicious meal
The meals you eat have a significant impact on maintaining your brain in top operating order. Food is also an excellent mood enhancer. According to nutrition experts, fatty fish, blueberries, broccoli, dark chocolate, turmeric, and coffee are some of the best foods for supporting your brain and memory. If coffee plays as one of the highlights of your morning (or day), you’ll be relieved to learn that it’s also excellent for you. Caffeine enhances your mood by sharpening your concentration, increasing alertness, and improving your general mood.
