Exercising increases the production of BDNF—brain-derived neurotrophic factor, that causes neurons to grow. As a result, it increases your ability to learn faster, remember more, increase concentration, and improves overall brain function. Physical activity reduces stress which significantly decreases mental performance. A healthy diet and rest time increase your energy level and set up a positive frame of mind.
- Get fit now.
Schedule a full physical with your physician. Set up a training plan that best fits your interests and schedule and put it on your calendar. Stretch regularly.
- Improve your diet.
Consider visiting a nutritionist to create a customized meal plan. Eat only for the nourishment of your body, not as a result of negative emotions. If you feel bad about something, move first or do another activity to change your emotional state before eating.
- Get more sleep.
Train yourself to sleep eight hours a night.
- Set up a good environment around yourself where people care about health.
- Make a commitment.
Hire a personal trainer or tell your family and friends that you are going to get into the best shape of your life. Make it happen.
