Charge Your Brain With Easy Movements for School, Home, and Work:

This blog is on easy movements that increase calm and focus for your brain.  Teachers do these and find their students are more attentive, learn better, and have fewer behavior issues.

Here’s why:

As we’ve mentioned small movements (journaling, knitting, playing an instrument) are great for emotional processing.  If you’re figuring out a relationship issue these are great to do!

However, for cognitive processing (problem solving, learning new skills, figuring out a work project) bigger movements are the way to go.

You may have seen how well your child does after recess, or how well you do after a workout.  The reason is that movement charges your brain just like plugging in your phone charges its battery.

When your brain is charged through movement you have more clarity, more focus, better production, and improved learning.  So while it takes time to move, it makes your brain work so much more efficiently afterward!

While any big movements are good (running, swimming, sports, playing on the jungle gym, taking a walk), you can magnify the effect of your movements if you do certain things.  In this blog we’re going to talk about a specific series of movements through Brain Gym expert Cindy Goldade – owner of In-Motion Intelligence.  These simple movements are like recess or a walk on rocket fuel.  It lets you get the result you’re looking for in less time.

While Brain Gym has 26 movements, we’re going to keep it simple with a 4-activity warmup that works great to get your brain going!  FYI – these movements may seem simple, but they activate your brain in a very specific way to be extremely effective.
