How can I manage and improve my own brain?
The human brain requires a certain amount of maintenance and understanding to function at peak. In this video, HealthMaker Alvaro Fernandez talks about why it's important to know your own brain.
ALVARO FERNANDEZ: So people complain about memory, but often, the problem, the bottleneck is not memory.
It's attention. If we don't pay attention to something, how can you remember it? [MUSIC PLAYING]
There's a vocabulary. So what vocabulary do most people use to understand their own mind and understand their own brain?
So more often, it is stress. We have many people calling us, how can I improve memory?
And often, they have extremely stressful jobs. Well, maybe the bottleneck is how to regulate stress, and that's going to help you improve attention,
memory, decision-making. So if we don't expand vocabulary, it's going to be very difficult for people
to be more advocates and active consumers as they should be in this area.
And it is not that difficult. For example, we all know that to drive a car, you need to understand a few basics.
We are not asking people to become professional mechanics, but you need to understand what is driving wheel, how you brake, how you accelerate,
how often you have to replace-- add new gas, you have to change the oil. What do you do if something is broken down?
So we need to feel, to create a sense of empowerment, of education for people to start managing
their own brains in the same way that over the last 30, 40 years, we have learned how to manage and improve
