Healthy Brain

 

Not only is it important to keep the visible parts of our bodies protected when it comes to preventing injuries, but we must also remember to protect our noggin’ too! Keeping a healthy brain is super important to help us with all aspects of our life.

 

Nourish your brain with a healthy diet

  • Feed your body a well-balanced diet
  • Drink plenty of water
  • Make sure to start your day with a good breakfast
  • Drink caffeine in moderation

 

Enjoy physical activity

  • Exercise regularly and set goals
  • Take the stairs instead of the lift
  • If possible, walk or ride your bike to get to where you need to go
  • Go for a walk or exercise after a stressful day or on your breaks

 

Make “safety first” a priority

  • Always wear PPE when required in your job
  • Wear safety helmets if you ride a bike or when playing sports
  • Always wear your seatbelt
  • When going on an adventure or long hike, make sure you have plenty of water, snacks, and the right footwear

 

Relax and sleep well

  • Avoid social media, emails, and phone calls after 9pm or earlier
  • Try meditating throughout the day or exercising
  • Set regular sleep times if possible
  • Don’t go to bed until you feel sleepy

 

Exercise and challenge your brain

  • Challenge your brain with fun activities such as puzzles, crosswords, Lego, or strategy games
