Thought of the day – Five Simple Brain Exercises
The premise of these brain aerobics or neurobics is to do familiar things, but do them slightly differently.

1. Switch Hands

So, a really easy thing to do is to try one of your daily activities — brushing your teeth or dialing a phone number — with your non-dominant hand. I used my left hand to brush my teeth this morning and it’s a lot harder than you realize. I really had to concentrate. And basically, what that does, apparently, is strengthen those pathways and connections in the opposite side of your brain.

2. Close Your Eyes

Try a safe activity, like eating or showering, with your eyes closed. That forces you to use and strengthen your other senses. Most of what your brain does is process what your senses are bringing in. So, closing your eyes forces the brain to process that information in new ways. But one thing you obviously shouldn’t do with your eyes closed is drive.

3. Play Games

Games help you strategize, but the brain is particularly stimulated by multi-tasking. So, play games with other people that require you to strategize and interact socially at the same time. Examples include board, word and card games.

4. Don’t Get Repetitive, Do Something Different

Introducing novelty is crucial. Your brain doesn’t need anything complicated; it just needs something new. So, take a new way to work, or sit in a different seat. It forces you to look at the world from a new perspective.

5. Watch What You Consume

You want to make sure to consume brain-boosting foods or supplements. Try antioxidants in food, such as berries, tea, and leafy greens. And you also want to consume fish (if you are a non-vegiterian) oils, which also come in supplements.

Brain teaser of the day

Find the missing number.

Have a great day!
