I’ve tried some apps before for brain training and either got bored or felt like it was ineffective. Impluse has me hooked. I enjoy playing the games and I can immediately feel the different.
It gets me to the stress point (where growth happens) fairly quickly and alows me to track my progress. I’m intermediate in problem solving, amateur in memory, amateur in focus and amateur in mental maths. I’ve got a long way to go!
You’ll want to purchase the paid version if you’re going to do it. I paid $40 for ImpulsePRO [lifetime, 60% off]. Well worth the investment.
I’ve used many journals. This one is not a physical journal, but let me explain why I love it. Ideally, we are using physical journals and a pen to write and reflect. But I like to supplement this practice with an online journal for a few reasons.
- I can type about 10x faster than I can write. If I have a lot to say, this is the way.
- I can’t lose this journal. It’s here to stay.
- Penzu emails me, reminding me to journal if I forget.
- Penzu also sends me old entries from the year prior. This has been amazing for me. The other day I was laughing out loud at an old entry. Totally worth it!
- It’s free with a paid version. I am on the free plan.
The #1 app for sleep, anxiety and stress. I use this app every single day. If I don’t, I can tell a difference. Mediation is key to brain health and happiness. If you are new to meditation or if you’re experienced, this app is extremely helpful.
They have over 40,000 guided meditations. My favorite teachers are:
- Sarah Blondin
- Liza Colpa
- Ram Das
- Tom Evans
- Dora Kamau

A large number of studies have emerged showing the immense benefits of mushrooms on the brain and body. What sparked my interest in this topic was this interview with Joe Rogan and Paul Stamets. It’s still one of my favorite podcast interviews.
I recommend you watch this interview, check out his site and do some research on which mushrooms to invest in. I take one of the following daily and randomly cycle through these supplements in addition to adding whole mushrooms to my diet.

This book blew my mind. There were times during this book when my jaw dropped, honestly. I highly recommend you read this book as it could change your life.
Dr. Joe Dispenza delves deep into the extraordinary potential of the mind.
Brain Rules: 12 rules for surviving and thriving at work, home, and school.
This book was fantastic. I read it while traveling southeast asia and I learned so much about the way we learn. If you read this, you’ll understand how to best retain information and how to teach information so it sticks.
Most of us have no idea what’s really going on inside our heads. Yet brain scientists have uncovered details every business leader, parent, and teacher should know—like the need for physical activity to get your brain working its best.
I love the way Dr. John Medina, a molecular biologist, explains how the brain works in a digestable and entertaining way.
The Brain’s Way of Healing: Remarkable Discoveries and Recoveries from the Frontiers of Neuroplasticity.
In The Brain That Changes Itself, Norman Doidge described the most important breakthrough in our understanding of the brain in 400 years: the discovery that the brain can change its own structure and function in response to mental experience – what we call neuroplasticity.
His revolutionary new book shows, for the first time, how the amazing process of neuroplastic healing really works. It describes natural, noninvasive avenues into the brain provided by the forms of energy around us – light, sound, vibration, movement – which pass through our senses and our bodies to awaken the brain’s own healing capacities without producing unpleasant side effects. Doidge explores cases where patients alleviated years of chronic pain or recovered from debilitating strokes that had plateaued; children on the autistic spectrum or with learning disorders normalizing; symptoms of multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, and cerebral palsy radically improved; and other near-miracle recoveries. And we learn how to vastly reduce the risk of dementia with simple approaches anyone can use.
Becoming Supernatural: How Common People are Doing the Uncommon.
This book, like his others, will blow your mind!!!
The author of the New York Times bestseller You Are the Placebo, as well as Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself and Evolve Your Brain, draws on research conducted at his advanced workshops since 2012 to explore how common people are doing the uncommon to transform themselves and their lives. Becoming Supernatural marries the some of the most profound scientific information with ancient wisdom to show how people like you and me can experience a more mystical life.
Readers will learn that we are, quite literally supernatural by nature if given the proper knowledge and instruction, and when we learn how to apply that information through various meditations, we should experience a greater expression of our creative abilities; that we have the capacity to tune in to frequencies beyond our material world and receive more orderly coherent streams of consciousness and energy; that we can intentionally change our brain chemistry to initiate profoundly mystical transcendental experiences; and how, if we do this enough times, we can develop the skill of creating a more efficient, balanced, healthy body, a more unlimited mind, and greater access to the realms of spiritual truth. Topics include:
- Demystifying the body’s 7 energy centers and how you can balance them to heal
- How to free yourself from the past by reconditioning your body to a new mind
- How you can create reality in the generous present moment by changing your energy
- The difference between third-dimension creation and fifth-dimension creation
- The secret science of the pineal gland and its role in accessing mystical realms of reality
- The distinction between Space-Time vs. Time-Space realities
