Mental Exercise and why to do them

Mental Exercise and why to do them

Not many people I know do mental exercise daily, or weekly for that matter.

So today I want to shine light on a topic I’ve had going before: mental exercise and the benefits of them.

If you are also interested in knowing more, you can read the full post from last year here

 

I hope you all have a happy life, one day at a time!

What is going on?!?

What is going on?!?

 

So what have I actually been up to?

 

For quite a while you haven’t heard about me and what I am doing, so I thought today would be a good day to tell you what has been going on. 🙂

 

In July I started as an apprentice at JYSK, which is a huge store chain who specializes in “everything to a good nights sleep”

 

Being employed with them has this far been amazing and I have been incredible lucky to be in a store with all young people (since it makes them more understanding and easier to talk with)

Having a job (well I guess this counts for all jobs) is actually really hard (school was hard too, since that meant sitting down for 8 hours and then going home to study) but working in a store-especially one like this, means standing up and walking for 8 hours every day. On a normal work shift for me, I’d end up walking 12.000 steps, and that is JUST for work.

 

Because of this I have been very tired (in a good way) and therefore the blog posts have been a little rough and inconsistent. While my body has finally-almost- gotten used to using my body that much, so has my brain with remembering all the amazing things about my workplace.
Since we give advice to everyone who needs to sleep (basically) there is a lot to remember about sleeping patterns, tips & tricks, advice giving, product information and remembering to use all our platforms correctly (that means the programs for ordering products, our order statuses, our information platform and so on)

 

Beside this my boyfriend and I will be moving tomorrow, so there is a lot to think about with work, moving, blog and actually taking time off to just breathe once in a while.

 

Even though this is a very chaotic time, it is also an amazing time, and I try to enjoy every moment possible.

 

I hope you guys have a blast too, and I hope you all have a happy life, one day at a time!

Benefits of blueberries

Benefits of blueberries

Blueberries are a great health boost berry that more people should know about 😊

Some of the many great benefits of blueberries are:

 

  • Has a lot of antioxidants- which helps go against oxidation, so that you can oxygenate without struggle (which means your you can give your body the oxygen it needs and fully use it)
  • May help lower the risk of developing diseases like Parkinson’s and Alzheimers
  • Full of good fiber- fiber helps keeping the heart healthy, the body stable and your cholesterol in check
  • Has a great amount of manganese, which helps with bone development and converting proteins, fats and carbohydrates into energy
  • Full of vitamin C- vitamin C helps maintain healthy gums and capillaries, aids collagen formations and helps maintain a healthy immune system
  • Are loaded with anthocyanidins. These are known to help boost brain function, and therefore also boost your mood

 

So go on. Take a handful and enjoy!

 

I hope you all have a happy life, one day at a time!

Love yourself

Love yourself

Once again, I’m here to bring up one of the most important things in life (from my perspective of course)
Self love, that is!

Today I won’t write much, just remind you of how important self love is, and put in two small links for you.
They lead to two earlier posts I’ve made about exactly this.

Here is post one of How to love yourself  

And the second one is Love yourself!

I hope you’ll read them and try your hardest to love the most important in your world-yourself. ❤

 

I hope you all have a happy life, one day at a time 🙂

Benefits of mental exercise

Benefits of mental exercise

 

So… mental exercise… who here practices that daily? Weekly?
Well I don’t, and not many people I know do… So here is 12 reasons to start doing some mental exercise:

 

  1. Improve your verbal skills
  2. Helps and challenges both your short and long time memory to boost it
  3. Makes you think more logical
  4. Improves your attention and focus
  5. Keeps your healthy by challenging it at least a couple of days a week
  6. Can boost your base level brain functions
  7. Makes it easier to problem solve
  8. Can increase your IQ- well because learning makes you smarter
  9. Makes you think faster
  10. Improves your self-esteem- we feel better about ourselves when we do something good for ourselves
  11. Lower your risk of dementia and Alzheimers
  12. Increases productivity because you now think faster and are more focused

 

So now that we know that we SHOULD exercise our brains at least a couple of days a week. But how? Well there are a lot of ways. The ones I use the most are these:

  • The app “Duolingo” to learn new languages
  • YouTube: to use learning programs or watch debates. Finding someone who do not agree with you about something makes your brain do a lot of thinking. It might be good once in a while to get your opinions challenged
  • Sudokus
  • Crosswords
  • The app “elevate”
  • The app “memorado”
  • Board games which are logic and strategy games. Like Trivial pursuit or RISK.
    I especially love playing board games with friends or family, so you get to spend quality time with your loved ones AND exercise your brain 😉
  • Youtubers like: “the infographics show”, “asapSCIENCE”, “Crash Course” or “TED-ed” are some of my favorites

 

Now go out and learn!

 

I hope you all have a happy life one day at a time 😊

Xoxo ❤
