Seven tips to boost your mental potential

Do you have times when you feel foggy and can’t think clearly, or feel distracted and lacking in focus?

Perhaps you forget the name of someone you know well, or forget an important appointment. We depend so much on having a clear mind and good recall that even a temporary loss of this faculty can be upsetting.


1. Eat ‘intelligent’ foods


Our body’s innate intelligence recognises and gains maximum nutrition from foods that are fresh and lively in their own intelligence. Foods that are refined, processed or genetically altered have much of this natural intelligence stripped away.


2. Feed your brain with balanced nutrition


You don’t have to be a vegetarian to be healthy, and an Ayurvedic diet is by no means an exclusively vegetable-based diet, but “going vegetarian” for a certain period of time, or eating some vegetarian meals during the week, can provide you with a real health boost.


3. Use herbs and aromas to nourish your brain


Ayurveda uses the term Medhya for herbs that are especially nourishing for the brain. Medhya herbs enhance Dhi, Dhriti and Smriti (learning, retention and recall) and also promote Ojas, which coordinates these three functions.


4. Manage your stress


Stress and anxiety can have a huge impact on how well your mind functions. A coherent brain and a calm, serene mind, is one that can focus well, can sustain its attention on the task in hand, can retain information and is good at solving problems.

5. Get a good amount of quality sleep


Often associated with stress levels, another plague of modern living is lack of deep, restful sleep. Along with diet and lifestyle, sleep is a central pillar of Ayurveda.


6. Use it or lose it!


No matter what your age or occupation, to be at its peak your brain needs constant challenge. Learn new skills; keep your mind busy and alternate this ‘busyness’ with the serenity of 20 minutes Transcendental Meditation twice a day.


7. Balancing the imbalances


Ayurveda sees balance as the key to life, and balancing the three principles of Vata (movement), Pitta (transformation) and Kapha (structure) is fundamental for maintaining mental and physical health.
