3. Walk as often as you can
Walking can be a simple way to boost your cognitive performance. On one hand, it offers exercise, which is good for both body and mind. Walking has also been proven to help increase creativity, especially when walking outside. Walking can be a useful habit to have when you want to solve problems or think more effectively.
What to do: If you feel stuck on a problem or want to improve your flow of ideas, take a walk outdoors. If you make a habit of it, you are also likely to feel the benefits of exercising more. If you can’t go outside, walking indoors can have a positive effect too.
