There are three proven ways to improve your brain's performance according to Sharon Begley of Newsweek Magazine. One is exercise. Exercise is good for your heart, muscles, and bones, but probably the greatest benefit is to your brain. Exercise creates positve brain changes (neuroplasticity). If it was a drug, it would and should be prescribed to everyone. This is another reason why people should exercise every day.

The second way to improve brain function is through meditation. Meditation, or focused attention, allows us to develop self awareness. Self awareness is the most critical part of changing any behavior. Most people who are "stressed out" cannot meditate at first but, with practice, they are eventually able to. Meditation will also have a calming effect. If you meditate regularly, it will help turn off the stress chemicals in your brain so you can think more clearly.

The third way to improve your brain's performance is complex video games. These games make you focus, use your short and long term memory, your visual skills and other executive brain functions. If you improve in these games, you have created positive brain changes which can apply to other aspects of your life.
