Improve Your Brain: Give Your Brain a Vacation!!

Have you ever had days that you just felt that your Motivation, Creativity and Progress have come to a screaming halt?  You’re not alone, we all have days when, for some unknown reason, we just stand still!  We can’t seem to find the right words to write, we can’t find that theme for a video or come up with that perfect Marketing Campaign to move forward.  We Freak Out! We ask ourselves Am I at the End of My Ability to Grow? Have I Hit that Proverbial Wall – Going Nowhere?

Don’t Panic! We all have moments that leave us without a single thought in our heads.  I believe Your Brain can get Over Stressed,  Loaded Down with Too Much Information, Too Much Data - You Just Shut Down! Your Brain Needs a Vacation!! Now I don’t mean go to the Isle of Crete for a month! or go Whale Watching! What this means is  – Your Brain Needs to Refuel – Needs to Restore Itself!

I’ve never understood this concept:  When you get a fever, you take an antibiotic.  When you have a stomach ailment – you take something for it.  Why is it, when our Brain sends us signals, we ignore it?  Instead, we continue to push on.  Our brain is a miraculous organ that needs to be heard!  The Brain is as much in need of tender loving care as the rest of our body. Your Brain Needs Restoration! You Need to Improve Your Brain’s Ability to Function!

How Can You Improve and Exercise Your Brain?

Here are a few things you can do to Improve your Brain and give it a vacation:

Take your dog for a long walk in the park or around the neighborhood, stop and talk to fellow dog walkers or your neighbors – find out what they’re up to!

Go play Hopscotch, Jump Rope or Football with your kids! It gives you a chance to connect with your kids – it’s Great Exercise and a Great Relaxant for your brain!

Got a Great book that you started a while back, but your Marketing pushed that book into the background? Hey, put up your feet and read a few chapters! Did you know that Reading is one of the greatest forms of exercise for your brain? It has been known to increase your Brain Cells!  Yaeee Brain!

Go see a Movie! Watch your Favorite Television Show!

Get the idea? The list of things to do can go on and on and on.  The point is, Give Your Brain some time to Refuel itself, Rest, Get Rid of the Stress, Get Off Overdrive!

Before you know it, you will start getting an Infusion of Ideas! That Burst of Energy! Your Brain will be Feeding you Incredible Data for your Projects!  You will be Back up on Your Feet – Ready to Take on the World!

And Hey!! You Had A Great Time Getting There!

Have a Great Day!

    I love this Ellen. I think when you can’t find anything to write about or all of your ideas have run away that is your brain making you let it rest. I agree with you totally, you need to schedule in time for your brain to rest. Great post. Thank you for sharing.
