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.

Practice Mindfulness

As mentioned above, it is important that you are always present and in the moment for whatever activity you are doing. Tune your ears and your brain into the task at hand, whether it is working, being at an event, or listening to a conversation.

Starting to practice mindfulness can be easy with Dr. Oz's comprehensive Blueprint for Balance guide.
