Exercises to improve your brain power

 

 

Just as it is important to exercise your body for physical strength, you should also exercise your mind for mental strength. With diseases such as Alzheimer’s and dementia robbing people of their ability to be totally present in their lives, prevention is certainly the key to living a long and completely coherent life.

Here are some of the best exercises you can do to increase your brain power for years to come:

 

Play Trivia Games

The more you work your mind, the stronger it will become as this is definitely one of those cases where if you don’t use it, you will lose it. Make it a point to test your knowledge and keep yourself thinking on a regular basis by playing trivia types of games. Even crosswords offer the same positive benefits as they force you to search the recesses of your mind to find the answers.

 

Engage in Games that Test Your Strategic Ability

There are many that you really have to think through what you’re doing to get yourself from the start of it to a successful finish. Some examples include games such as Sudoku, Candy Crush Saga and war games as all of these involve thinking ahead.

 

Learn a Something New

To keep your mind nimble, you’ll want to continue to feed it new information. Two great ways to do this are to learn a new language or discover how to play a musical instrument. The more unfamiliar with it you are the better as it will force your mind to grow and expand as you feed it new knowledge.

 

Get Physically Active

Research shows that 10-40 minute exercise sessions boost your ability to focus on tasks and problems. It’s possible that it is the increased blood flow to the brain that helps but, regardless of the reason, you’ll have better concentration if you get your heart and body moving prior to completing an important task.
