10 Keys for Unlocking Your Super Emotional/Mental Health & Your Super Brain

At Knew Health, our members strive to be the healthiest versions of themselves.

Being healthy, also means having a healthy brain. Here are 10 keys adapted from Jim Kwik, renowned brain coach, to be healthy and have a SUPER BRAIN.

  1. Good Brain Diet

A good brain diet includes foods such as avocados, salmon, blueberries, coconut oil, broccoli, green leafy vegetables, walnuts, turmeric, dark chocolate, water, etc.

  1. Killing ANTS (Automatic Negative Thoughts)

The thoughts we think have a direct impact on our emotional well-being and brain health. With over 60,000 thoughts a day, it’s important to keep those thoughts as positive as possible. We’re human though so negative thoughts are bound to creep in. When they do, use this magical “ABRA” formula to stop those thoughts in their tracks!

A = Acknowledge the thought

B = Breathe in possibility, a positive thought, and potential.

R = Release the negative thought. [Breathe in positivity. Breathe out doubt.]

A = Align. RESET. Align with your TRUE SELF.

ex: The negative thought might be: “I don’t have a great memory.” Add “YET” to the end of the sentence: “I don’t have a great memory YET!”

  1. Exercise

Jim Kwik reminds us that “anything good for the heart is good for the brain.”

People who exercise have better: mental acuity, focus, memory, and mood. They tend to be clear thinkers and have more energy and less stress.

  1. Brain Nutrients

In today’s lifestyle, we are on the go, we are bombarded with fast food, the CORONA Diet has not done us any favors! We aren’t getting the nutrients we need.

We have to supplement with things like Omega 3 and B Vitamins. (Knew Health members get 35% discounts on supplements!)

  1. Positive Peer Group

The experts say we are the average of the top 5 people we spend our time with. Choose wisely! Are you spending time with people who are negative and drain your energy? Are you spending time with people who put you down? Spend time with people who are encouraging, who hold you to a higher standard, who educate you, and who support your highest self!

  1. Clean Organized Environment

Don’t you just feel better when you clean your room or your office? Doesn’t it feel great to clean out your emails or your computer desktop?

A clean, organized environment = an organized mind = better focus = clearer thinking = more energy = positive mood

  1. Sleep

This is the biggest life hack there is!! If you want a better brain and greater overall health, you have to optimize your sleep!

  1. Brain Protection

Head traumas have a terrible impact on the brain. Avoid extreme sports and make sure to wear a helmet when skiing, biking, or doing other sports.

  1. New Learning

Learning something every day adds years to your life and life to your years.

  1. Stress Management

Stress can wreak havoc on our mental, physical and brain health! Add things into your day to reduce stress: massage, yoga, mindfulness training, meditation, exercise, nature.

 

Are there any areas above that you are neglecting?
