AMARILLO, Texas (KAMR/KCIT) – Pharmacist Doug has 5 easy and free ways to increase brain power.

Being around smart people can challenge you to think in new ways and sharpen your vocabulary.

Switching up your routine can create new neural pathways. Examples include changing the hand you brush your teeth with or rearrange things in your home.

Sleep, it’s important for a lot of function but it can repair your brain and helps to move short term memories into long term.

Smart foods can increase brain power, some of those include blueberries, mulberries, oily fish, nuts, eggs, broccoli, cauliflower, sage, tumeric, and pumpkin seeds.
