Easy Brain Power Strengthening Tips

Mar 21, 2008
It's quite simple: if you want to begin strengthening your brain's power, you need to give it some exercise.

OK. It's not a simple matter of going down to the gym and getting your brain to pump weights. But actually, the process of brain power strengthening isn't too different from that model.

You need to stretch your brain.

If all you do each and every day is the same old thing, the same routine, then your brain will start to get bored and your brain power will gradually drop. It's no wonder there are television programs that get ratings by pitching adults against ten year olds to see who is smarter.

It's time to make sure that you come out the winner!

So where do you begin in your quest to boost your brain power?

There are lots of different ways - which you prefer will dictate the ones you choose. But it may also pay you to use a method that initially gives you the reaction of "no way" as this could be the very method that tests your brain the most and brings out the biggest gains.

Puzzles are an easy way to go. If your daily commute involves the use of public transport, it's easy to take a crossword or Sudoku book with you on the journey and complete one or more puzzles each day.

If you've got one of the latest games consoles, you'll almost certainly find games that are designed to increase your brain power. Test yourself against these and see how you improve over the next few days and weeks.

Stretch your reading. Whilst some people advocate learning new words each day - and this certainly does work - it can be a bit boring. There are interactive sites on the web such as FreeRice which will test your vocabulary and start stretching it, even if you only play for a few minutes (or until you've donated a thousand grains of rice, for instance).

Eating the right foods can be a help as well. This could be a simple matter of adjusting your diet so that you increase the amount of freshly prepared foods you eat. Doing this will help you to get the right mix of nutrients and vitamins. Or if your diet isn't as varied as you would like, take a multivitamin pill on a daily basis until you get a chance to make the necessary adjustments.

Earlier on, I mentioned that you couldn't take your brain to the gym. That's not totally true as exercising your body will also release nice chemicals into your brain (called endorphins) which make you feel good and will help stretch your brain naturally.

Cut down on television. Start by cutting out the negatives contained in the news. Then carry on to find other ways to reduce your regular television intake. You won't miss it and doing other things will start to help your brain to increase its strength.

Take up meditation - especially if it has binaural beats attached to stimulate your brain whilst you meditate.
