9 Ways To Train Your Brain Every Day And Why It’s A Must!

train your brain

5 simple exercises you can do every day to train your brain:
1. Read a book
2. Change your surroundings and regular routes
3. Concentrate, delve into details
4. Memorise information, learn poems
5. Think positively

Your brain is your life force. If you don’t keep your brain alive, you die inside, it’s as simple as that. Once your brain has no juice to keep it going, and no hope because it has nothing to live for, it dies inside and so do you with it. This is what happened to my Grandma when she was in a nursing home that no longer stimulated her mind, and in my opinion did not even care for her in the most humane way they could have done, but at least I had her for 96 years and so I am very thankful and grateful for that. Although most of those years were before she went in there. I pray I am always able to look after myself or pay for myself to have care in my own home in years to come should I need it, because I would not wish that on anyone. I used to think I would like to be in a nursing home if need be in the future as I would always have company and make friends but not when you are not able to go to the toilet when you want and peeing yourself or into a pad so it seeps out onto the chair is acceptable. Don’t worry, I did fight for her while she was alive, and had meetings with the manager/s, but to no positive outcome, in fact I was almost banned from seeing her and that stopped me seeing her when I really needed to. That is why it is so very important that even if your body is not in the best state of heath, you make sure your brain is kept alive so you can think for yourself and stay in your own home. After a fall she was put in there and stayed there and at first they had activities to stimulate the resident’s mind but then they stopped having those, although to the public it was a different story.

My Grandma used to do word searches while in her own home and that really helped and my parents do crosswords to keep their brain active and alive. My mum also watches a lot of TV programmes that ask general knowledge questions and my dad although retired blacksmith, has a non-profit organisation at the age of 72 years and now works up to 5 days a week, doing courses in Blacksmithing. He helps a lot of people with special needs to gain confidence and self-esteem through working with metal as well as those without special needs and people come from all over the world to attend. Some people buy gift vouchers to give as a birthday or Christmas present or other.

So whatever you do, keep your brain active as much as possible, so you maintain a good quality of life and your independence, and you also keep your morale up.

6. Listen to motivational and thought-provoking YouTube videos.

7. Watch films that make you think about life, the world, planet, and universe!

8. Read things that help you to learn skills.

9. Do things that give you incredible experiences to make you think differently.

How are you keeping your brain active and alive? Please comment below because I love to read you!

As always, stay positive and live your quirky dreams.

Make Every Moment A Memory That Counts!

make every moment last quote

“Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory”.

Sometimes we get so busy and distracted in our life, especially with all of the social media and the endless streams of information on the internet, that we forget to cherish each and every moment in the here and now! So whatever you are doing or are about to do, enjoy the now, because in the blink of an eye it will be yesterday and your tomorrow may never come! I hope it does for you, but there is never any guarantees in life so make the most of what you have, and love you and those who help you in the journey of your life. Cherish every moment and each breath you take as someone is not as fortunate as you. Make every moment a memory that counts!

When was the last time you cherished a moment? Leave your answer in the comments below because I love to read you!

As always, stay positively you, and keep going for your dreams however quirky they may be.

Inspirational Quote To Help You Find Your Purpose!

things are not random quote

“The things that excite you are not random, they are connected to your purpose, follow them.”

Just imagine living a life you are passionate about, one which always intrigues you and also helps you on your own life journey. Imagine doing things daily which excite you, which make you feel it is worthwhile getting out of bed in the morning, which makes you come alive and feel great, and which you could do every single day of your life happily, even if you don’t get paid for it!

The things which excite you and make you feel alive are the very thing you were put on this earth to do and be involved with, so go and do them, because the one thing stopping them is yourself!

If you have intuition that lets you know you should be doing something and no matter how hard you try to go away from it like a boomerang it will keep coming back, it is because it is part of your life purpose and mission and you must fulfil it as part of your destiny! You know what you have to do, so go and do it and don’t look back!

As always, stay positive and achieve your dreams.

If You Had To Change One Thing In Your Life Right Now What Would It Be?

If you had to change your life  - how

If you had to change one thing in your life right now, what would it be?

Whatever it is that is on your mind, it won’t go away, so go and fix it today and work your socks off to make it happen! Make that thing a must, not a might, ought to, or a should, and be compelled to achieve it no matter what! Maybe it will take you a day or two, maybe a month, or even a year, maybe longer, but just think of what it will feel like once you have achieved it and think of what other opportunities it may lead to.

Please let me know in the comments below, what one thing you would like to change and what your first step is going to be to achieve it! I love to read you.

As always, stay positive, and keep believing in you!

How To Get Your Life Back On Track #life #hacks

August was a tough month and so was September as you know if you saw my last blog post. And even though September didn’t go according to plan, and burnout crept upon me (thank goodness I got the blu ray player), I still think this is an invaluable video to help you get your life back on track and to help you know you are not alone in your struggles! And taking time out in September to get better helped me to reflect and know what I have to do and REALLY want to do! And listening to this video again after my illness serves as a fantastic reminder of how to get and keep your mind and life on track!

To summarise how to get your life back on track:

  • Write down what you want in the future!
  • Write down what would make you happy now!
  • Write a love letter to yourself!
  • Write down your feelings and emotions!
  • Write down your passions, goals and dreams!
  • Write down your skills from your job.
  • Write down your hobbies and interests.
  • Don’t think, just do it!
  • Take action now!

Which is your best advice from the video! Comment below – I love to read you!

Until next, stay positive and work towards your dreams.

Love Sandra xx

Whatever happens, keep moving forward!

Move forward.facebook-photo

Sometimes in life you come to a stand still and your body just wants a rest, your brain wants a rest, and you need a rest, by that I mean a break! So in order to keep moving forward in your life, let it have what it wants and go and do something, even if it is just one thing, to make you feel good, happy, calm, relaxed, and on top of the world.

See most people think moving forward means working or doing the norm, but that isn’t always the case. Moving forward is recognising that you need help, you body needs help and your mind needs help, it may just feel burned out, through anxiety, work, stress, or doing the same predicable things over and over again. So get up, get dressed, and for once in your life go and do something just for you, to make you feel alive again! To make you feel good, happy, relaxed, and that life is definitely worth living!

Until next time, stay positive
