10 Things to Do Every Day to Exercise Your Brain

Xpress commuters ride in a very stress-free environment. Our riders love to take naps, read books, and check emails.  Here are some tips while riding Xpress and throughout your work day to exercise your brain.
1)    Drink 2 glasses of water within 30 minutes of waking up.
Hydrating after 6-9 hours of sleep is necessary to kick-starting your day.
2)    Read a book summary during breakfast.
Stimulate your mind by reading some of best-selling book summaries; they are far more suitable for a quick breakfast read.
3)    Drink Green Tea while working.
Coffee can induce anxiety; high-quality green teas cause a relaxed focus without inducing sleepiness.
4)    Limit your sugar during the day.
Sugar highs and lows are not good to keep the brain functioning smartly.
5)    Do simple exercises during the day.
Physical fitness helps the brain function; our mind and body are strongly connected.
6)    Read a book instead of watching TV.
Reading a book is an active exercise for the brain.
7)    Spend time with someone smarter than you.
Habits are socially contagious.
8)    Carry a note pad to jot down your thoughts.
Having a little pad on you and writing down interesting things can greatly help you train your curiosity and logical thinking.
9)    Take naps during the day.
Napping helps your mind refresh.
10)    Take 10 minutes at the end of the day to plan tomorrow.
You allow yourself to work much more productively.
