The vagus nerve connects the brain to key areas of the body, such as the heart, lungs and stomach. And stimulating this nerve encourages the release of a compound called acetylcholine that clears aware brain fog and sharpens thinking in a hurry. Since the nerve is connected to your vocal cords in the back of your throat, it’s easy to get it humming by… humming! Try opening and closing your mouth while humming the alphabet song–it’ll create a strong vibration that stimulates the vagus nerve for an even bigger mental boost.
