What would be the first word that pop in your head if someone asked you about weapon? Probably you would say something harmful or may be something that has any relation to war or soldier,you name it. Even Mr. Google say that weapon is a tool used with the aim of causing damage or harm (either physical or mental) to either living organisms or inanimate objects. In human society weapons are used to increase the efficacy and efficiency of tasks such as hunting, fighting, the committing of criminal acts, the preserving of law and order, and the waging of war.
Since i made this blog in order to fulfill assignment for Creativity and Innovation class, one of the best subject in SBM-ITB (as* licker alert!),i should interpret weapon in creative way. Hmm, okay maybe i will interpret it from my perspective about what weapon is.
For me a weapon should be really helpful and also invulnerable and that’s why human being should be really grateful because we were born with the greatest weapon ever which is our brain. With 100 billion of neurons which is the same number stars in our galaxy,Brain helps you to survive through the rest of your life whether it is solving mathematic problems during the class or even doing some practical things. Besides it is a really good weapon, brain also has no pain receptor so it cannot feel any pain. How cool it is!
Someone wise said that it’s all inside your mind,what exactly that guy is trying to say? Have you ever experienced that one part or your body were injured but you didn’t realize the pain until you see it bleeding? Have you ever attempt to break a thick iron with paper roll? It is all about what you are thinking,if you thinking you could do it then you could do it ,if you think that it hurts then it hurts even though it is not. That’s why we should use it wisely because it can be a helpful weapon or may be senjata makan tuan.
Just like another advance gun, our brain need its own bullet such as take a nap or eat healthy foods. Salmon,Cacao Beans, Matcha, and Blueberries are considered to be a really good brain food. I will explain it briefly one by one :
Salmon is not only an incredible food for brain health, it qualifies as incredible across virtually every other health standard as well and is clearly one of the healthiest foods that one can eat. It is one of the best sources of Essential Fatty Acids (such as the all-important Omega-3),low saturated fat, generally among the lowest amounts of contaminants (such as mercury) among seafood, and other health properties salmon can help do everything from improve your brain matter, your mood, your synaptic connections, your arteries, reduce your risk of stroke and Dementia and Alzheimer’s and much more.
2. Cacao Beans
WRONG. Well, mostly wrong: what’s healthy is the cacao bean, minimally processed. If you want the real stuff, the best is either use 100% organic cacao powder who minimally processes or you can choose only the high cacao percentage dark chocolate bars (75% or higher).
Matcha’s unique effects on the brain were a perfect fit for those monks in Japan preparing to endure 12-hour straight meditation sessions: calming and focusing while stimulating at the same time, it’s no wonder that Matcha became integrated into the monks’ meditative practices.
Blueberries contain essential fatty acids like Omega-3’s like salmon, and and is even high in protein. With antioxidant levels higher than any other berry ever tested, Blueberries unique combination of health properties make it a true superfood for brain and body. Of course, we’re talking Blueberries here not some local generic health food shop pills claiming to contain Blueberries and that’s where the challenge can come in.
May be you have a different opinion about what weapon is to you but i could not think of any good that stronger, smarter, and faster than brain. Through brain you could develop your own self-defense and also develop yourself to be a better person that in the future will help you to deal with any kind of problems,make you the winner.
