Brain Exercises – Keep Your Brain Healthy
Although physical exercises such as running and jogging are good for your brain health, there are other exercises you can do while sitting to make your brain healthy, sharp and smarter. Here are a few brain health exercises you can do.
You can do this alone or with a partner. While sitting in a public place memorize the details of the people you see. You can start with memorizing three details, then progress to memorizing more. If you’re with a partner, make it a game and take turns to see who remembers the most details.
This exercise is what brain experts refer to as ‘passive memory training’ because it doesn’t warrant any special memory techniques. It simply allows the brain to indulge in a fun activity, rather than make it perform at its peak and store the memories in its memory bank.
If you want to become a better observer, this exercise will certainly help you develop memory skills. You can also try this exercise on cars or buildings or any objects for that matter.
Play ’10 Things’
This brain exercise is where you take an object and try to think of ’10 things’ that may be similar to your object. Take an egg flip for example. What other things are similar to your egg flip? Is your brain working in over-drive wondering what else it could be? Or did you think of 10 things easily?
If you can’t think of any, how about a guitar, or a shovel, or even a fly swatter. Now it’s your turn to come up with a few more! As you can see a game like this forces your brain to really think hard and makes it stronger.
Indulge in Art If You Don’t Already
Drawing or being creative artistically is a relaxing brain exercise, and therefore has the added bonus of providing relief from stress. A brain that suffers less from the impacts of stress is not just smarter but healthier too. It also makes you use the creative side of your brain. You may not do this every day, but investing some time on art projects can greatly improve your brain’s ability to process nonverbal and emotional cues.
It’s Time to Start Reading Aloud
Reading aloud allows your body to use other brain circuits. This is the reason why many editors and writing experts recommend that reading aloud should be done during the editing process.
When each word is spoken out loud, the brain ‘can hear’ the dialogue or conversation. This enables the brain to easily pick up grammatical errors etc. It also helps improve the memory as you are far more likely to remember what you have ‘said and read’, than just read.
Other Brain Games
This video wouldn’t be complete without mentioning the Rubik’s cube. This is one brain exercise that can either frustrate you or have your brain trying as hard as it can to solve the puzzle! If you can, congratulate your brain! Well done!
As for other ideas, there are plenty of things you can do to exercise your brain and boost its power. The key is to allow your brain to try outnce
