By Toni Gasparis

Your brain may not be the largest organ in your body, but it uses 20 percent of your body’s energy on a daily basis to function. Having a brain that is sharp and strong is super important when it comes to overall health and well-being. So how can you make sure that your brain is the strongest it can be? Simple daily or weekly activities can make your brain more efficient over time. Try one of these ideas to improve your brain health and boost your memory.

Focus Burst

Similar to interval exercise training, focus bursts help your brain hone in on the task at hand in order to complete work in a more efficient way. Our brains do not work as well if we are doing work while also checking emails and social media, texting, etc. Do your brain a favor and focus solely on your work for five minutes and then take a two-minute break. Sectioning off time for work and play will allow your brain to reset, making you more productive and your brain more focused.
