What braincare means to you

Your brain is unique. Your braincare will be too. But this is what braincare means to the Heights community.

Braincare is for everyone. And everyone’s experience of it will be different (although we like to think that most people’s will include the Smart Supplement). So for Brain Awareness week 2022 (14-20 March), we thought we’d ask our community what braincare means to them.

This is what they said.

Daily habits that support good brain health

“Braincare is the things I do to take care of my mental and emotional health. I’ve just recovered from a severe and long-term case of burnout, so I’ve seen first hand the impact that poor braincare can have on your body and subsequently your life. Now I’m trying to create daily habits that support good brain health such as sleep, diet, exercise, therapy, journaling, breathwork, learning etc.”

—Gillian Bane

The future

“Braincare is the future, in terms of mental health, and health as a whole. As a healthcare professional, this is something that I’m very passionate about. Just as how we have diets and exercise regimens for our physical fitness, we should inspire a culture of braincare for our mental fitness with to build mental resilience and better brain health.”

—Vyshnavi Desiraju

It makes perfect sense that we need to feed our brains

“I’m a lawyer currently recovering from burnout, with the help of my GP and therapist. I am incredibly passionate about wellness (in its most universal sense) and I’m on a bit of a mission to help others in my profession take better care of themselves. My previous conception of braincare was limited to things we are told help to stave off dementia—new languages, sudoku etc. Having listened to Dan, it of course makes perfect sense that we need to feed our brain as part of our body. Why is this not more widely spoken about?!”

—Louise Oliver

One of the most important forms of self-care

“Braincare is one of the most important forms of self-care and looking after myself. As someone who really struggled with anxiety, I'm very aware of how looking after my brain impacts how I feel, what I think, and how I show up in the world. Looking after my brain is a non-negotiable, which includes daily exercise, mental stimulation, and meditation, as well as the food I eat. Being able to provide my brain with all the nutrients it needs is so important.”

—Natalie Costa

Feeling more productive and motivated

“Looking after my brain supports me in feeling more productive and motivated to create a life that brings me joy. Being able to manage my emotions and have a positive, grateful outlook on life is influenced by how I look after my brain and body.”

—Chloe Woods

Some of our other favourite answers

As someone with ADHD and a history of complex mental illness who lives and works in a high-stress environment, braincare is the single most important element of my self-care regimen.

—Caitlin Fox

Putting as much effort into the health of my brain as I do the rest of my body.

—Lauren Ellera

Striving to give my brain the same love, care, and recognition, as I give my body—day in and day out.

—Esra Cuhadaroglu

Braincare means a 360 approach to nourishing your brain and mind through food, sleep, positive relations, and self care.
