BRAIN YOGA 🧠🧘 for focus 🙇‍♀️ and concentration 🏃‍♂️


In this video, you’re going to learn the
number one physical exercise that you can do to jar you into focus. In fact, I’m
going to be demonstrating the exercise myself and since I don’t have any
sneakers at my office I’m going to be in socks 😉 So you’re in for a treat 😉
Don’t judge me! Katya Seberson is my name and I’m the inventor of the Seberson
Method. It’s a scientifically proven way to learn anything fast. Let’s talk about
physical exercises, shall we? If you are like me and you really love
self-improvement you probably have heard the name of Tony Robbins. Tony Robbins is
all about changing the state. Often times, he said it from stage and his tapes just
change your state; move; start to act differently and become a different
person. I love that. I think there is something to changing your state when it
comes to combating procrastination and starting to take action when it comes to
learning. Apart from this mental exercise, that we also gave you the four circles
exercise. If you haven’t seen that exercise definitely watch that video. I’m
going to make it a suggested video at the end of the video and also it’s
linked below. Other than a mental exercise, sometimes you just need
something physical sometimes you just need some action so I’m going to show
you a short sequence that I often recommend to my clients something that
could get them into focus because a brain and a body they are connected
there’s no disconnect so if you’re doing something with your body your brain is
going to get going now the first step of this exercise is
take a sip of water obviously drinking water is just like sleep it’s super
important if you’re not sleeping enough you’re not gonna remember anything if
you’re not drinking enough water your cells are not getting enough nutrition
into them you’re not remembering anything make sure you drink a lot of
water. This exercise begins with first step: hydrate.
After you hydrate, what you want to do is you want to activate your brain buttons
there are some points in your body that are called brain buds that wake up your
brain like crazy so you do a thing like this with your fingers and then you want
to find your clavicle bone and your ribs that are underneath and you want to
press in side just like this and then you want to put your arm and you want to
do a circular motion 1 2 3 4 and then you want to switch 1 2 3 4 switch 1 2 3
4 switch again 1 2 3 4. If it hurts just a little bit, don’t worry about it.
If it hurts a lot maybe you’re pressing too hard but usually because we’re
sitting like this these muscles are tight so what you want to do is you want
to wake up your brain and we normally don’t press here so when you do your
brain is like what’s going on are we in danger should we run what’s going on but
what you do with your second hand is you calm your brain and let your brain know
you’re safe nothing is going on so it’s kind of a
wake up and a calming effect at the same time. The second exercise is elbow to
knee all of you know what elbow to knee looks like but this one comes with a
little twist this elbow to knee you connect your elbow to your knee in front
of your body and then behind your back try it
1 2 3 4 and now behind your back 1 2 3 4 let’s do another set of 4 1 2 3
4 and now behind your back 1 2 3 4 on the surface it may seem like a super
easy exercise. Katya, how is my brain getting activated? I do things that are
much more complicated at my gym!!! Well, believe it or not in order for you to
coordinate the parts of your body that are outside of your vision the brain
requiring a lot of additional neurological pathways. Sometimes it’s the
question of age or maturity. I have so much fun with my grandmother who likes
these types of exercises she’s she is over 70 years old so she’s usually
struggling with Katya I got this ah this one and then she’s gonna try and like
it’s really interesting for me to watch her because I don’t have this problem at
all if you don’t have someone in your household who’s over 70 years old find
someone who’s younger than seven. They will struggle with crossing the midpoint
of their body that is out of their sight as well. So that’s a lot of fun the next
thing you want to do is you want to give me your thumbs up then you want to turn
them into a thumbs down interlace your fingers just like this
now let’s look at your legs you want to put your right leg in front of your body
and then you want to cross it like this now let’s go back to your arms. Your arms
twist inside and you’re going to place it in the middle of your body. Now, we’re
about to do a three-part breath you’re gonna stay like this and I’m just gonna
uncross my arms so that I could show you A three-part breath requires you to put
the tongue to the roof of your mouth. Keep it there for the whole breath
exercise. What you’re going to do – you’re going to breathe in for three hold for
three and then breathe out for three. So keep your hands here and then let’s go
breathe in one two three now hold it one two three and then breathe out three two
one. Beautiful! Remember where your tongue is it’s in the roof of your mouth
two more times 1 2 3 | 3 2 1| 1 2 3 One more 1 2 3 | 3 2 1 | 1 2 3 now you’re officially
done with you three-part breath exercise if you already feel energized and you
feel like yeah I could go and study go ahead and do that
stop this video now if you feel like well can I go for a little bit more?
Can I do something a little more sophisticated? For my advanced crowd,
here’s one more exercise find a midpoint in your body it’s if we were to imagine
that your body would fold in half it would fold in half across this line and
then find another midpoint in your body that would be here so the interest
section would be somewhere around your stomach or some people call it the solar
plexus not quite sure my med students please correct me so you want to find
your center. Now, take your arms and connect your fingers just so and then
place your elbows on the sides of your body and that where you’re going to do
is you’re going to lift up your pinkie and put it back. Lift up your ring
finger put it back. Lift up your middle finger put it back index finger and then
your thumb once you get to the thumb you just want to go back 1 2 3 4 how is it
working for you? Is there a finger that is a little bit more difficult than
others? Usually people struggle with a ring finger and maybe it’s connected to
the middle finger or maybe it’s connected to the pinky so it’s fully
normal so you can go one round in another you can just do a few rounds
like this but for those of you who want to take it to another level what you
could do is you could do a double tap or maybe a triple ta. one two . What this
exercise does is something really magical. It takes your brains focus from
the outside world onto the world of inside and the world of your own body.
Have you seen that video that we made on Pomodoro’s and how there is a 25-minute
period where you study intensively and there’s a five minute break?
What are you doing that five minute break? You can definitely do that quick
exercise this will help you reset your brain and prepare you for the next
focused session. Another way I use this advanced exercise
is during tutoring sessions with my clients. When I give them an assignment
and they’re really struggling let’s say it’s a math word problem and they’re
just keep approaching it from the wrong angle what I suggest we do is we do this
exercise and when they are finished and maybe one or two rounds I let them go
back to the same math problem what happens is most often they have a
different take on the problem you know how there is a focus mode and there’s a
diffused mode if you wanted to get a speed access to your diffuse mode you
can just do that real quick and see if it helps you. I’m very curious to see
what you thought about this physical sequence and whether it has helped you
become more focused. If you know of any exercises that personally help you to
jar yourself back into focus to evoke your willpower certainly let me know I’m
all about that you can find me on snapchat Instagram and Facebook the idea
is the same everywhere it’s at Seberson Method please comment below and let me
know which part was your favorite which one you didn’t like as much and which
exam you’re preparing for so what exam the sequence is helping you focus on. And
once again one of the lucky people who leave a comment you will be chosen to
get a free session with me. It’s a free lesson to help you work through your
learning issues regardless of the exam you’re working on. I’m looking forward to
connecting with you guys and don’t forget we choose a winner every month so
stay tuned
