Train your Brain!

Brain exercise or mind exercise, what do we get from it? Last time, i gave you the foods that will help you increase your memory. Now, I'm here to share to you on how you can help your brain. Don't forget that not only our body needs exercise, our mind as well.

When i was in high school(third year to be exact) My math teacher never forgets to give us some mind exercise before we start our class. I hate it at first, but as weeks passed by. Me and my classmates began to enjoy it. Mind exercise not only helps you in your memory but it also helps in retaining mental capacity. It helps us to stay sharp as we age. And you never know it might also help to prevent age-related mental or memory problem such as dementia.

Here are some mind exercises that you can do anywhere.

  • Try to switch your wrist watch to your other arm, for example your watch is always on your right arm. Wear it on your left arm for a change. The next time you check the time. You might still be looking on your right arm.
  • Recite the alphabet backwards.
  • Try to remember the lyrics of an old song
  • play sudoku
  • Look at your enemies point of view. Ask yourself and answer.
  • Name all the movies you hate/like/
  • If your driving try to explore new ways.
  • Memorize your credit card number.

There are still so many ways to exercise our mind. So the next time you found yourself in a traffic. Stay cool and exercise your mind.

Wonderful tips. I don't have the greatest memory but for some reason I can remember lyrics to all the songs I've ever heard. Yet, I forget where I put my keys, walk into another room and forget why I went into the room - weird.

Brain exercise is really helpful to keep our mind alert. I have games on my Nintendo DSi to help me exercise my brain, but I will definitely try your advice because I think it is really fun to remember an old song and recite the alphabet backwards! Thank you for sharing this to us!
