SUPER BRAIN YOGA
Memory and Concentration Improved by One Simple Exercise
A quick and easy exercise improves poor memory, lack of concentration, clumsiness and emotional instability.
Watch the short this short video to see how it's done!
Main Points From the Video
In this video, a teacher, doctor, neurobiologist, occupational therapist, and parent discuss how one easy exercise:
Stimulates neural pathways via acupressure points in the earlobes
Synchronises the right and left side of the brain to improve function and promote calmness
Sharpens intelligence in seniors, juniors, mums, dads and kids
Helps those with autism, Asperger’s syndrome, learning difficulties and behavioural problems
Is fast and simple to do – takes just 1 to 3 minutes a day
Benefits anyone of any age
Make sure you are wearing comfortable clothing and have removed any ear jewellery before starting. Avoid doing the exercise immediately after eating.
Step One: Stand with your feet about shoulder distance apart, toes pointing forward.
Step Two: Hold your right ear lobe between your left thumb and finger, with the thumb on the outside of the lobe (we’re not joking).
Step Three: Hold your left ear lobe between your right thumb and finger, again with you thumb on the outside of the lobe. You should now be holding both earlobes with your arms crossed over your chest, right arm on top (and we’re still not joking).
Step Four: Look directly ahead and commence doing a body squat by slowly bending your knees and lowering your body toward the floor. Go as low as you comfortably can and then slowly raise yourself back to a standing position. Exhale as you squat and inhale as you stand.
Step Five: Repeat the squats for 1 to 3 minutes, or 14 – 21 times, while continuing to hold your earlobes.
Results may be immediate or gradual. Concentration should certainly be stronger within 3 weeks. The exercise only needs to be done once a day but if concentration wanes it can be repeated as often as desired.
So, with an exercise this easy why not commit to giving your brain a regular workout? Just hold those ears and bend the knees for a few minutes each day to have clearer thinking and a sharper memory.
