10 helpful tips for better and longer working of the human brain

1. Eat Dark Chocolate – This activates the part of the brain that secretes dopamine (which allows learning and memory)
2. Visit a museum or gallery – or any location that interests you. After the visit, reconstruct everything you have seen / experienced and heard. Memory is a brain activity that encompasses all levels of brain surgery (receiving information, remembering information, and thinking).
3. Remember the words of a new song – listen to a new song repeatedly. Write down all the verses on a piece of paper. Try to memorize lyrics and melody. Developing better listening habits helps you understand, think, and remember. When you are relaxed, the neurotransmitter aceticolin (a chemical transporter of information) is released, allowing brain plasticity and reviving memory.
4. Learn to play an instrument – this is how you practice many interconnected parts of the brain (listening, fine-tuning, etc.).
5. Use the stairs instead of the elevator – or park in the farthest spot in the car parking lot. This is a good exercise for the brain and human body. Cardio-respiratory exercises reduce the risk of obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease. They reduce the risk of dementia / Alzheimer’s.
6. Put wallpapers in your living space and change them from time to time – when we do routine things in a constant environment, then the brain works as an auto-pilot. Every newspaper literally brainwashes. Creates insights into new activities and information the brain receives. It stimulates better brain function. Creates new neural connections and pathways.
7. Find time for rest and short sleep 8 as much as possible every day) – when sleeping the human brain sorts all the information received and then gathers and stores the memories collected throughout the day. That is why it is important to have 8 hours of sleep each night. 6 hours of sleep or afternoon rest is just as important for resting the human brain.
8. Roll your eyes up and down then left and right — move your eyes in two opposite directions to help you remember all that matters to you. Do this exercise for 30 seconds. This exercise helps bring the two hemispheres closer together. When both hemispheres work well, then we get better and easier to receive new information, say scientists at Manchester Metropolitan University in England.
9. Create your own puzzle or word game – choose an 8 letter word. Write three new words that start with the first three letters of the selected word. Then write down three new words beginning with the last three letters of the selected word. Create a memory game by trying to list everything you currently have in your fridge or desk. Remember the arrangement of things in your closet.
10. Socialize with humans / animals as often as possible – each socializing reduces the risk of senility or memory loss. It’s important to surround yourself with people you feel comfortable with, who stimulate and drive you, and advise you on how to be better people. Physically and emotionally isolated persons are exposed to depression and depressive behavior. Join a club (mountaineering), book a cafe, a dance center, volunteer at the Red Cross or an association. Do something that interests you.


  1. Dear “oldbirdtravels”,

    Thank you very much for your detailed comment. You are absolutely right, but we all need to work on our brains somehow. I write down sporadically some longer words even hard to say it loudly (on a piece of paper) and try to remember some song words. All of us we need to find our own way.
    Wishing you all the best.

    My sincere regards,
