Your ONE minute with Dr. KRISSY DOYLE-THOMAS Neuroscientist and Professor ğŸ§ 

Here are 3 tips from a Neuroscientist of things that will affect your brain.

[Not an exhaustive list] 👈🏾

😮‍💨1. Practice deep breathing

Deep breathing increases oxygen to your brain and stimulates the parasympathic nervous system. This is the system that calms the body and acts in opposition to the system that readies your body for fighting, fleeing or freezing.

🏃🏽‍♀️🥬2 Stay active and eat well

Exercise releases hormones that provide an excellent environment for the growth of new brain cells. It also promotes neuroplasticity that stimulates new connections in the brain.

🫂3. Connect with others

Socializing improves our overall mental health, improves cognitive function and prevents cognitive decline. Studies have shown that socializing might also lower the risk of dementia.
