Nas is also known as @nasneuro , a neuro scientist currently studying a PhD with a focus on genetics... so naturally we connected!
We asked Nas for some top tips and nuggets of information that could help improve your brain health, including memory, cognition and mood.
Healthy Gut Microbiome
Regularly consuming fermented foods/probiotics increase the diversity in gut microbes. This sees an improvement in your mental health.
Going outside within 30 minutes of waking up can improve your productivity and sleep.
Getting 7-8 hours of sleep each night betters your memory formation and your hormone regulation and recovery happens during your sleep
Work in 90 minute chunks
Your brain is designed to work best in its ultra-circadian rhythm, set a 90 minute timer and then take a 10-15 minute break!
Play for 30 minutes
Doing something fun, like playing an instrument/sport has been proven to undo neural circuit associated with trauma, this means better hormone regulation
Omega 3 rich EPA: taking 1.5-2G daily helps improve your brain health and function (and of course consume an Omega 3 rich diet with oily fish and nuts/seeds like hemp and walnuts!)
Oh and lastly… Exercise!
Daily exercise helps to maintain healthy blood sugar and oxygenate the brain.

What’s a Rich Text element?
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
Static and dynamic content editing
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
How to customize formatting for each rich text
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
