5 tips for healthier and better functioning of brain functions
- Eastern doctors claim that memory can be stimulated by the so-called “hakini mudra” (a special position of the hands that stimulates the channeling of energy in the human body). It is achieved by joining the fingertips of both hands (the grip is slightly firmer) while the fingers remain spaced and stretched. This is a position that we sometimes instinctively take to think better. It is very effective for increasing concentration because it improves communication between the right and left hemispheres of the brain, strengthens memory and balances breathing. When we focus our attention on a particular position of the hands, we move away from the hectic everyday life and chaotic thoughts that usually occupy the mind. Find a quiet place to exercise to concentrate better. It is very important to pay attention to breathing, which should be slow, deep and balanced.
