Today’s post starts with a simple routine that you can use to boost your brain power. It’s taken from an article by Janet Kinosian and based on the book Superbrain Yoga by Master Choa Kok Sui …..
YOGA BRAIN EXERCISE
While yoga has long been shown to affect mood, one yoga
move in particular is getting attention for boosting
brainpower. Superbrain Yoga, as the exercise is called, is
being practiced across the country as an antidote to brain
drain. Go ahead. Try it!
This simple move boosts brain function by
stimulating acupressure points on the earlobes, according to
Yale-trained neurobiologist Eugenius Ang, Ph.D.
“It’s like putting more gas in your brain’s tank,” says Ang.
Step 1 Place your left hand on your right earlobe, thumb on
the front of the lobe with fingernail facing outward and
second finger behind the earlobe. Then, with your right
hand, grasp your left earlobe, again keeping your thumb on
the front of the lobe, facing outward. Press both earlobes
simultaneously, making sure your left arm is close to your
chest and inside your right (which devotees say helps energy
travel upward to the brain).
Step 2 As you press on the earlobes, squat down, keeping
your back straight. Do 10 to 12 deep bends, inhaling through
the nose on the way down and exhaling through the mouth
coming up. You may place a chair underneath you as a
Step 3 Repeat daily.
