Are you having a fast, confusing day? Here is a 15-minute practice for calming yourself and maintaining clarity.

Take an active role in a cognitively challenging activity: crossword puzzles and other brain-challenging hobbies can all aid in improving brain function and memory. These diversions can help keep the mind busy, keep it engaged, and prevent cognitive decline. It provides an opportunity to sharpen the problem-solving skill.

Practice mindfulness

Being present and aware at the moment is the practise of mindfulness. Simple exercises like yoga, meditation or deep breathing can help you become more mindful. These exercises can help in minimising anxiety as well as enhance attention and concentration. Additionally, practising mindfulness helps enhance emotional control, self-awareness and general well-being.

Read a book or journal

Reading is a good technique to increase vocabulary, focus, and intellectual ability. Reading can also open us to fresh ideas and viewpoints, which is good for our brain development. Reading can also help with memory improvement because it challenges and educates the mind.

Practice gratitude

Gratitude can help one to focus their thinking and enhance their general well-being. Focusing on the factors in your life for which you are grateful might support shifting your attention from unfavourable to favourable thoughts. An improvement in mood and general well-being can result from this. Regular grateful exercises can promote perseverance.
