It may be used prior to making an important phone call or before that big test. Teachers this is a good method to help calm and quiet those students down.
Now you may be wondering why water is listed. Everyone needs to have enough fluids on board for good thinking. Lack of water can cause fuzzy thoughts. The brain is mostly water from 75% to 85%. So have a sip of water at work and at school to keep your brain and body well hydrated. If you would like more details on good water, please see, Is Water The Fountain of Youth?
Brain Buttons stimulates the carotid arteries which carry oxygen to the brain. Several points on the body are used for this process.
Cross Crawl is always a favorite. In this activity, people are crossing the mid-line with their hands and/or legs. This aids in using both hemispheres of the brain and body for improved thinking and performance.
Lastly the Hookups is very positive and has a calming effect. It helps with relaxing the mind and bringing about a certain state of coherence.
