PRODUCTIVITY TIP:
TRAIN YOUR BRAIN TO BE INSANE!

Give that brain of yours a workout 30 mins a day 🏋️ 💪

Did you know you can actually optimize your brain like any other body part? The key is targeted cognitive workouts.

This isn’t about making you smarter, it’s about improving crucial cognitive skills to excel at work.

RESEARCH: Johns Hopkins University researchers directly compared leading types of exercises and measured people’s brain activity before and after training.

RESULTS: JHU found that the group of participants that practiced the dual
n-back
exercise showed a 30% improvement in their working memory. Double the gains made by the group working with complex span.

DUAL N-BACK: is a memory sequence test that makes you remember a constantly updating sequence of visual and auditory stimuli. If set to 1-back, you must remember a flashing square and letter from one previous round, 2-back you must remember the second to last etc.

For significant results:

  • You should do it at least 20 minutes a day (30-40 is better).
  • And at least 5 days a week.

Johns Hopkins neuroscientist Susan Courtney said: “There’s something about sequencing and updating that really taps into the things that only the pre-frontal cortex can do, the real-world problem-solving tasks.”

THE ELITE COWORKING SEARCH SITES

Don’t ever resort to McDonalds for free WiFi. Ever. 🙃

Here are two must-bookmark sites to help you find a quality coworking space on your travels:

 

Both feature a range of listings from free WiFi cafes to coworking offices that will keep you covered in most cities in the world.

There’s also placestowork.net which is an aggregator pulling listings from these two search sites plus others and displays data such as coffee prices and WiFi speeds. It automatically searches by your current location.

Note: placestowork’s search function is a little buggy, but just append the name of the city you want to search to the URL.
