NATIONAL TRAIN YOUR BRAIN DAY
On October 13th, National Train Your Brain Day challenges us to some puzzling games and riddles! Whether you play solo or go up against teams, the day improves our thinking power.
Learning something new is another practice that benefits the brain, too. When we learn a new skill, we focus and tap into our problem-solving abilities. If we’re doing the same thing every day, we’re probably not solving too many problems. The brain gets bored. You’d get bored, too if you watched the same episode of the same TV show every day.
When the question is asked to American scientists as to how much of the brain is used, the answer varies. However, many of them believe that it is only a small percentage and that there is room for expanded learning and knowledge within everyone.
HOW TO OBSERVE #TrainYourBrainDay
Do some logic puzzles, brain teasers and riddles to train your brain. Or you can head over to the Trivia Page for some brain exercises! Other fun ways to train your brain include:
- Download a brain training app. These technologies offer a variety ways to test your brain.
- Mix up your routine. If you always do a crossword puzzle, try a different type of word game or number puzzle.
- Expand your interests. Take a cooking class or music lessons. Both will help improve your brain as you learn new skills.
- Take a different route to the grocery store or to work. You may discover changes to your neighborhood but you’ll also be giving your brain an opportunity to shake out some of the rust.
