Take outstanding care of your BRAIN
The next thing you  must take good care of is your Brain. We live in the age of the internet, social media, smart phones bombarding you with information 24/7 so becareful as to the quality of information that you take in. Switch off your phone an hour before you go to bed, when you are out to dinner with your significant other or friends leave your mobiles in the car and be 100% present.

To become the best version of yourself, there are a few aspects to taking proper care of your brain.

Make sure that you control your thoughts rather than letting your thoughts control you. You cannot control what thoughts come into your mind, but you can control what thoughts you acknowledge and give attention too.

If you don’t take control of your mind, your mind will instead focus on negative thinking, cognitive distortions and negative entertainment.

The best way to take control of your thoughts is to practice meditation, focus on gratitude for what you already have in life, develop the abundance mindset. When a  negative thoughts enters your mind thank your brain and ask them to move on and re frame the thought.

It’s good to evaluate things on a regular basis and see if any bad habits have crept in without you noticing. You might not be taking care of yourself as much as you should do, or not exercising as much as you could, always keep evaluating.

Always try new things in life, this does not have to be bungee jumping, it could be trying a new recipe, reading a new book from a different author. Or going to a new place you have never been before, a different café, restaurant, a theatre or the cinema.

Be a lifelong learner constantly develop our competences, read and read a lot, go to lectures and seminars, take online courses, respect knowledge and make sure that you acquire a lot of it. Complete crosswords, brain teasers and sudoku anything to keep you thinking and your brain young.

Don’t spend time on mindless entertainment like watching TV, reading the daily news, social media, spend time on upbuilding positive reading all the information we take in good or bad has an impact on your mind.
