Have you ever heard of "superbrain yoga"?
It's ok if you haven't, but please give it a try for a few weeks, you may see a marked improvement in well, basically everything.
This is great for people with all sorts of memory problems and even learning disabled. And of course it's good for those of us without any problems. Whoever that may be.
Doing this rather basic squat and then standing back up while holding on to opposite earlobes has proven benefits for the brain. All brains. Cross the arms (right over left) and INHALE on the lowering into a squat and EXHALE on the standing back up). Try this for five minutes, or try 10-15 reps. Nice and slow. See if the science is working for you! Build up to 15 minutes a day.
If you cannot go into a full squat, it's fine, just do what you can be gentle to the knees.
Watch the video for further instructions and some of the science behind it.
