The brain is the organ inside the solid protection of skull. It is so protected because the brain is the reason we breathe we walk we talk we think in fact everything we do is because of the brain. The central nervous system inside brain sends signals to different organs of body telling them how to respond and what to do. The neurons that leave the brain carries a message of a particular action that a body part has to perform once the body receives a message from brain it results in our actions e.g. when we touch a hot substance brain sends neuron to tell the hand to move away. These messages move faster than light. If a person’s brain goes numb, the person goes numb. So you have got to keep it active and running, you have got to make it boost and function faster for a sophisticated lifestyle. In our daily routine, there are a lot of things that we do can change the pace at which our brain is working. Our activities can either increase the brain activity or can make it lazier. For a better and healthy lifestyle, it is vital that our brain functions in a very fresh and healthy manner. Like we need to water a plant for it to nurture exactly that way the brain needs its juice to work boldly. Now the question arises where a brain does get its juice? The answer is pretty simple you have to keep your mind active via a list of aspects. These are the factors that we are going to discuss.
The workout is a person’s best shrink. When you workout out your brain works in a way that you automatically get into a good mood you are physically fit so deliberately you are confident of yourself.

After the workout, the proteins and carbohydrates (starch, sugar, and fiber) are digested four times faster than in dormant state. The endorphins released to get us in a good mood. Workout solves breathing issues and helps cure asthma. Apart from respiratory tract it also improves the circulatory system of the body.

As the workout boosts the powerhouse of each and every cell in our body i.e. mitochondria, so it leads to the faster functioning of the brain. Other than that mind games or brain exercises are also important. Mind games like puzzles, quizzes, board games, learning foreign languages these all leads to a healthy and fast responding brain.
