1. Physical activity
Physical exercise does not only keep muscles in tone, but also has a positive impact on the overall health of the brain, because intense movements improve the blood supply to the muscles and brain. Exercises when the head is below the heart are particularly effective (such as yoga postures).

Many studies show that a morning cup of coffee does not stimulate brain activity but on the contrary, makes people dumber! But if you replace it with a glass of water, the feeling of cheerfulness will be much longer.

For 80 years now we are told that the first self-replicating molecules appeared in the primordial soup in the Earth’s shallow waters, which happened 4 billion years ago. This “soup” was composed of amino-acids, polypeptides, and nitrogenous bases of nucleotides formed as a result of electrical charges, high heat and cosmic radiation.
However, the experiments to replicate similar processes have given mixed results: the basic monomers began to form substances that prevented the expected complexity to exist in this “soup” of polymers.
Later, the problem seemed to have been simplified by the “RNA world” hypothesis, but the probability of spontaneous formation of RNA, which wouldpossess catalytic properties, is very low. It is estimated that four billion years (more…)
Beethoven once said, “Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy.” As it turns out, music enhances learning, too. According to a College Entrance Exam Board Service study, students involved in musical extracurricular activities scored 51 points higher on the verbal portion of the SAT exams and 39 points higher on math on the SAT exams.  Through this and other research findings, educators believe that music relaxes, soothes, and helps people concentrate better, making it the perfect study companion to diminish distractions and keep students learning.
In Don Campbell’s book The Mozart Effect, Campbell has condensed research on the topic to enlighten readers about how music affects their brain. (more…)
The more you learn, the more of a well-rounded person you will be. Looking at life as a continual quest for knowledge, and finding cool new facts in whatever situation you happen to find yourself, makes life a lot more interesting. Those who love learning will usually have a desire to attend a college or a university and this is definitely a good thing! However, they may quickly find out that going to college is very expensive. Tuition really starts adding up. Although it hasn’t always been this way, in recent years, tuition prices are only getting higher, not lower.
To offset the costs of tuition, find out ways to start saving early on. If you know how expensive things can be ahead of time, then it will be easier for you to save and plan. Many students let the fear of debt and loans get to them and they think that college will never be an option for them. This is not the case! If you have a passion for learning, then work hard to pursue this. (more…)
