Brain Training Tips

Brain training requires some ongoing effort over a period of time. Brain power can not be enhanced overnight, but there are many easy strategies that you can use to make sure that your brain is being stimulated by practicing certain activities and making them a habit. Try these great strategies so you can begin increasing your brain power today:

Easy To Follow Brain Training Tips: Challenge Your Senses!

Most of the time we depend on just our primary senses: hearing and seeing. But what if you intentionally blocked them out? Guess what – your brain would have to work harder to compensate for those blocked senses! Covering one or more of your senses is a great exercise for the brain . You can try this simple brain-training exercise when engaging in basic activities such as folding origami or eating.

Don´t do this when you´re driving or operating any machinery!

During the exercise, I suggest that you immerse yourself in the exercise of having to use your other senses to understand what´s going on. The longer you engage in this exercise, the more obvious will be the results.

Discover New Uses For Familiar Objects

Another interesting brain training tip for you that will earn you lots of creative benefits and costs you nothing at all. It works like this: find any common object that you would like to give your attention. Any ordinary object will do: a table, a shoe, a key, a box, your phone, glasses, a pen, or vase. After having chosen the item, get a sheet of paper and a pen. Now describe the object you have chosen as detailed as possible.

Avoid writing down what you already know or what is obvious (like “a pen is used for writing”). Think outside of the box and find new applications for the object you are focusing on. If can to come up with ten new uses, try finding another ten. Write until your creative juices subside, and then pick the next  object for the game.

Embark On A Sensory Adventure!

Our society is extremely focused on the visual sense. Most people trust their eyes more than all their other senses. Which can be a cause for mental stagnation and decreased mental agility in the long run. We should use all of your senses in order to keep your brain fit. This can be achieved in many ways. For instance, go to a bakery and try cookies and breads that you would have never thought of buying normally. Challenge your sense of smell by closing your eyes and having someone present you items to smell. Try to identify the items just by the way they smell. You will be surprised how much we rely on our eyes even to identify fruits. Blindfolded, we realize how much we over-emphasize vision.

By challenging your senses, your brain will be forced to operate out of it´s norm, leave beaten neuron-paths, and create new connections. That is exactly what we want to achieve. A young or vital brain constantly expands and changes. A stagnating brain reduces its neuron-connections and tends to operate along fewer and fewer proven circuits.

Why don´t you embark on a sensory adventure at home or when you are on a journey? Performing this exercise a few times every week is a great brain power boosting strategy and it´s fun too, especially when practiced with friends.
