1. Boost your brainpower with Handwritten notes
You can definitely jot down more material by just typing on your computer screen, but you’re less likely to remember it as well. According to the research from Indian University, the notes you hand write are more likely to stay with you. “To learn something means you have processed it,” says Dr. Towfigh. So when you take handwritten notes, your mind ‘process’ or learn more information helping you to remember for a longer period
2. Exhausting Workday? – Must do Exercise
Long, exhausting workday and exercising. It sounds like the last thing you’d want to do. But the studies suggest that getting your sweat on will energize you. A 30-minute moderate exercise session improves your fatigue along with mood and depression.
3. Hot Drink to cool off body
After a steamy summer morning which will help you to cool off: iced drink or hot? Studies and even Indian culture says drinking a hot drink in the hot weather will help you to cool off. The body senses the change in temperature and increases your sweat production. As the sweat evaporates from your skin, you cool off naturally.
4. Health Tip for teeth – No brushing immediately after eating
Brush your teeth and get the stronger and cleaner teeth. You must have heard this for whole of your life. But don’t brush your teeth immediately after meals and drinks, especially if they were acidic. Acidic foods such as citrus fruits, sports drinks, tomatoes, soda can soften tooth enamel like wet sandstone. Brushing your teeth at this stage can speed up acid’s effect on your enamel and erode the layer underneath. Gamble suggests waiting 30 to 60 minutes before brushing.
5. Coffee for a better nap
A study that examined how to make the most of a nap, people who took a “coffee nap”—consuming about 200 milligrams of caffeine (the amount in one to two cups of coffee) and then immediately taking a 20-minute rest—felt more alert and performed better on computer tests than those who only took a nap. Confused?
So how does this work? A 20-minute nap ends just as the caffeine kicks in and clears the brain of a molecule called adenosine, maximizing alertness. As adenosine levels increase, we become more fatigued. Napping clears out the adenosine and, when combined with caffeine, an adenosine-blocker, further reduces its effects and amplifies the effects of the nap.
6. Apple Test
There are times when you feel like eating but are not sure if you’re really hungry. This test known as the “Apple Test” will help you determine if you are really hungry. Just do a simple thing. Ask yourself if you’d like to have an apple. If the answer is ‘no’, you’re most likely bored rather than hungry. Sounds easy. Isn’t it 😊
7. New Language or An Instrument – Your choice
Start learning a new language or how to play an instrument. These actions will not only help you to relax your mind but the studies have shown that they help slow down the brain’s aging process as well.
8. Driving Tip

9. Sleep Trick
Ever tried to sleep the early morning after staying awake the whole night? If you’ve stayed up all night, take a 15-minute nap before the sunrise.

There is nothing better than the whole night’s sleep.
