Your Cognitive Abilities Using These 3 Methods

According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, depression affects more than 6.7% of the US population every year, which translates to 15 million American adults. These 15 million are amongst the 300 million people of all ages who suffer from depression worldwide, according to the statistics published by the World Health Organization. A leading cause of disability worldwide, depression not only affects the human brain by affecting the individual’s mood and motivation, but hampers their ability to think and concentrate, causing cognitive dysfunction, also known as brain fog. According to the CDC, more than 16 million people in the United States are living with such cognitive impairment.

A person suffering from mild cognitive impairment (MCI) is at an increased risk of developing Alzheimer’s or dementia. The use of smart drugs is a popular method to improve cognitive abilities. These smart pills or memory pills help people improve cognitive abilities like concentration, focus, memory, attention and more, says an expert at Brain Enhancement Advisor, a site that provides unbiased and factual reviews on cognitive enhancers and nootropics.

Cognitive Abilities & Their Improvement

Cognition is a set of mental abilities that is highly important for us, since it allows us to understand and react to the world. Cognitive abilities are those brain-based skills that are supported by specific neuronal networks to control the mechanism required by us to learn, solve problems, remember, focus and more.

If you have noticed persisting low mood, lack of motivation and energy, difficulty in attention and concentration, etc., here are a few tricks that will help you to sharpen your cognitive abilities:

  1. Solve Puzzles: Have you ever paid attention to the excess pressure in your brain when you are trying to solve a puzzle? Yes, this is the time when your brain is trying to build new connections, highly crucial in the enhancement of your cognitive abilities. You can solve crosswords, try Sudoku or word-oriented brain teasers like cryptograms, etc. Try to solve at least one puzzle each day, switching from easy to tough, since your brain will respond much better to variety.
  3. Feed Information to Your Brain: Watch an educational science show on TV, since the visuals will allow you to understand and retain what you have seen for longer. Other than watching TV, you can read informative articles or books. You can use a tablet for this purpose to build more interest into reading. Try to recall the things you see on TV and read after some hours, days and weeks. The idea is to be able to retain knowledge for longer. If you are struggling at this stage, do not hesitate to take the support of memory supplements like Optimind, NZT48 and Prevagen.
  5. Exercise as Much as You Can: When you exercise, you heart rate increases, which allows more blood flow or oxygen to be pumped to the hippocampus in your brain, which is responsible for memory. Over time, you’ll experience reduced stress and anxiety, along with improved mood, memory and sleep, which prevents cognitive impairment. Regular exercise also prevents tissue decay in the brain, which keeps the cognitive abilities intact for longer.

Do not hesitate to take the help of a family member or friend in the process. If you are using Memory Pills or Smart Pills, make sure to take the recommended dosage.
