As September sets in, we say good bye to summer fun, and begin our transition back to schedules and to-do lists. Life is busy, and sometimes we need a little help remembering everything that needs to get done. Here are some helpful suggestions to boost your memory and focus, so you can keep up with your busy schedule.

Use it or lose it; exercise your brain:

The brain, like other muscles in your body, require exercise; either you “use it or lose it.” The more you exercise your brain, the better you’ll be able to process and remember information. The best brain work outs will challenge you to use and develop new brain pathways. Find activities that allow you to start on an easy level, and will continue to progress.  Now is the perfect time to learn to play the piano, speak a new language, or learn to dance.  The best exercise for your brain will be something that keeps you challenged and engaged. 

A cup of wisdom; brain boosting tea:

Our Thinking Cap Herbal Tea is specially formulated for those days when you need a little help with focus and clarity. With ingredients like Gingko leaf, Peppermint, Rosemary, and Ginger Root, you’ll find that Thinking Cap can help with problem solving and memory function.

The stress super herb; Rhodiola:

Rather than reach for that next cup of coffee, try replacing it with RhodiolaA great caffeine-free mood and brain booster that actually minimizes stress levels.

Essential drops for memory & focus; aromatherapy:

Aromatherapy is a great tool to set the mood, and increase memory and focus.  Feeling frazzled after a busy summer, getting back to school, or starting a new routine?  Try adding peppermint, rosemary, and lavender to your diffuser to create a relaxed and focused environment.  Put on your thinking cap with a blend of patchouli, rosemary, frankincense, and sage. This blend will boost brain power, focus, and mental clarity.
