Boost Brain Power and Creativity With These 5 Foods

When you hear the word ‘creative,’ you might automatically think of artists and writers, but in reality, we all could benefit from being a bit more creative on a day-to-day basis. Creativity, or the process of conceptualizing or creating something new, not only benefits your emotional health—it also tends to make life a little more interesting!

Although creativity is often thought of an inherent talent, there are actually ways we can develop and nurture this skill. One of these ways is through our food choices. Here are 5 foods that will boost your creative powers!

Just in case you needed another excuse to eat chocolate: A 2007 study found that eating chocolate could provide a boost to short-term cognitive skills, thanks its high flavanol content. Flavanols, which are a type of flavonoids, are thought to be useful in improving brain function by increasing the amount of oxygen that the brain receives. After consuming a chocolate beverage, the researchers observed that the subjects had “increased grey matter flow for two to three hours.” As the cocoa is the key flavonol filled-ingredient, chocolate with higher amounts of cocoa, like dark chocolate, might be the most beneficial.
Note: For maximum health benefits, always choose organic, raw, dark chocolate – without sugar added. You can melt it down and sweeten it yourself with coconut crystals, raw honey, or raw stevia.

Apple founder Steve Jobs believed that eating a high-fruit diet helped stimulate his exceptional creative juices, and he could have been on to something. Research has shown that most fruits are rich in the amino acid tyrosine. A recent study showed that participants’ ability to problem solve in the form of figuring out a puzzle improved when they consumed a beverage with added tyrosine.
You can get tyrosine in its natural form by eating more fruit!

The myth of the alcoholic artist may not be purely myth, according to a 2012 study from the University of Illinois. The study examined the problem solving abilities of men when their blood alcohol content was just below the legal limit, versus men who were sober. The researchers found that the intoxicated men to be both more creative, and more ‘insightful,’ than the sober men.
In practical terms, however, it’s probably best to enjoy your red wine when you’re at home writing poetry, and not brainstorming at the office. Also, make sure to keep it to one or two drinks per day – to avoid the dangers that come with too much alcohol.

shelled walnutsMove over almonds, there’s a new super-nut in town! Consuming walnuts regularly was recently shown to improve cognitive functioning in humans. The UCLA study showed that eating a handful of walnuts every day could help improve memory, concentration and how quickly the brain processes information.
All of these are important when you’re brainstorming, problem solving, or pursuing something creative.

Although carbohydrates have been getting a bad rap recently, research shows that our brains need them – the healthy ones that is! A study from the University of Toronto found that carbohydrate-rich foods benefited brain function in the short term by quickly delivering glucose to the brain. The subjects who consumed carbohydrates like potatoes and oatmeal showed increased concentration and memory, both of which are important for creative endeavors.
Note: When it comes to oatmeal, choose gluten-free steel-cut oats.

On top of the researched ways they benefit our brains and creative powers, all of the foods on this list have been shown to be healthy in moderation. So, if you’re looking for a boost so you can start a new creative project, be a more effective problem-solver, or if you’re just looking to add some flare and variety into your day-to-day life, try consuming these foods regularly!

What’s the Best Time of Day to Exercise?

There is no question that exercising on a regular basis is crucial to good health. However, there has been some debate as to what time of day is best for a workout.
While the simple answer is that different times work for different people, there is some new research which suggests that after dinner is the best time for those living with type 2 diabetes.
As a general rule for healthy individuals, how regularly you exercise matters more than when you do it. According to Dr. Russell Pate, a professor of exercise science at the University of South Carolina, “the best time of the day is when you will do it most consistently, because the benefits of physical activity are tightly linked to the amount you do on a consistent basis.”
There are scheduling factors to consider, of course. Do you have time for a brisk walk or a round on the exercise bike before work in the mornings? Do you have a break in the afternoon, or do you zoom straight to the kids’ activities? If you exercise after dinner, does it make you too wired to get to sleep on time? These are a few questions you can ask yourself when scheduling your workouts into your day. Try to make it the same days every week if you can – around the same time if possible. That way, your regimen will be easier to stick to.
For individuals with type 2 diabetes, who are at a higher risk of heart disease and stroke, the answer may be different. A new study performed at the University of Missouri studied a group of participants with type 2 diabetes. Some performed their workouts before dinner, and some performed them after dinner. Workouts centered around resistance training.
workoutResults showed that the participants who worked out before dinner displayed lowered blood sugar. However, those that exercised after dinner displayed lowered blood sugar and fat levels. According to researcher Jill Kanaley, “results from this study show that resistance exercise has its most powerful effect on reducing glucose and fat levels in one’s blood when performed after dinner.”
So, while more research needs to be done on this, and is planned, if you have type 2 diabetes, or are pre-diabetic, you may wish to talk to your doctor about exercising after dinner, and develop a workout plan that’s right for you.
If you don’t have a medical condition, however, current recommendations dictate that you’ll get the benefits of exercise no matter what time you do it – as long as you stick to your routine!

Stiff Shoes Can Hurt Your Feet: Choose Wisely

It is imperative to find the correct shoe for your feet. Wearing the wrong shoes could hurt your feet, and since everyone’s feet are different, is important to try on different types.
You might do best to find an expert that can fit your foot for the perfect shoe. Here are some tips on finding the correct shoe for your feet.
  • You will need to a shoe that has a flexible sole, one you can twist and bend. Because you walk from heel to toe, it’s important that your shoe is not stiff.
  • A shoe that is light and airy is the best way to go. You don’t want to walk around with heavy clunky shoes weighing you down.
  • Make sure the shoe fits your foot. There should be enough room in the front so you can wiggle your toes, and there should be about half an inch from your toes to the front of the shoe. The width of the shoe should be enough so that, again, your toes can wiggle. When you walk ,the shoe should not slip off the back of your heel, nor should it be tight across the top of your foot.
  • You will need to find a shoe that has a narrow heel. A heel that flares out will make your foot flap down and slow your momentum when you’re walking.
  • Different shoe sole on a grey background.Believe it not, it’s best to shop for shoes after you’ve been on your feet for the day, when they’re a bit swollen. Be sure to wear the socks that you intend to wear with the shoes.
  • Never shop when you’re in a hurry. You’ll want to give yourself some time to try on plenty of shoes and walk around the store, preferably on a hard surface. Be aware of how they fit. Wiggle your toes, twist your shoes and be sure to try both of your shoes on. Both of your feet are not the same size or shape, They may look it, but only your shoe can tell the difference.
  • Once you get home with your new purchase, wear them in the house. Try not to scuff them up just in case you need to return them.
  • Keep track of how long you’ve had your shoes and how many miles you’ve walked in them. Your shoes will wear out – it’s inevitable. They’ll lose their bounce and support. It might be best to buy two pairs of a shoe you really love, so you can switch them out or replace them every 300-600 miles. If you’re harder on your shoes, you may have to replace them sooner.
Most importantly, buy shoes that are comfortable. Comfortable shoes are safe shoes. They’ll save you from shin splints and blisters, and they’ll give you miles of walking pleasure.
