How to boot up the brain training

As I let you see it earlier, computerized cognitive training is an important instrument for making brain better. However such training does not work all the time, but why? Now I have a look into ways for pushing up the brain training with computer, and make it as good as possible.

Boot up Your brain

  1. Train no more than three days a week. There are signs of that even one training a week is better than every day training (Lampit et al., 2014). It is probably because you need to be very focused and give your best, if you like to make brain training working. You may not do it with too much training. On your control panel, there is possible to set up e-mail notifications about training on any days of a week.
  2. Make physical training before brain training. Physical activity may in fact speed up your brain and it works best right in such order (Law et al., 2014).
  3. Drink coffee or tea with caffeine. Caffeine is a nootropic substance what mean, that it helps focus attention and make memory better. So cup of coffee before brain training would be helpful (Santos et al., 2010).
  4. Attempt somewhat shorter brain training. As I said, it because you need to be very focus on it and most persons may not be able to be at high focus level for a long time. For example dual-N-back is most effective, when ones training last 20 minutes (Au et al., 2014).
  5. Drink a glass of berry juice. Right food is an oil for brain and blueberries or strawberries seems to have a two or three substances brain likes (Lamport et al., 2012).
  6. Rest. Sleep has an effect on brain and memory and as an outcome of that it may boot up your brain training. Sleep enough every day and in addition attempt to train right after or right before the night sleep, to check, what is better for you.
