Exercise for Your Most Perfect Memory
exercise is important in order for your brain to stay healthy and strong. There
are many activities in your daily life that will keep you mentally fit and will
act as an effective brain exercise regardless of your age. Four areas of brain
exercise that will contribute to your overall mental fitness are language and
numerical skills, reasoning and creativity.
exercise and language skills:
Do you stick with familiar
words or do you try to add new words to your vocabulary? Increasing your
vocabulary is one of the simplest and most effective brain exercises available.
It will make you mentally alert and is something others will recognize as a sign
of intelligence. If you get into the habit of looking up the meaning of new or
unusual words, you'll soon become more precise in your language skills. Some of
the following brain exercises will improve your brain as well as your language
Treat yourself to a really
good dictionary. You might want to find one that gives the derivation of words
as well as their current meanings, as it will show you where the original
meaning comes from.
Check the meaning of words
that you think you know. The meaning may surprise you. As well as keeping your
brain working in top form, the proper choice of words will also obviously
improve your abilities as a communicator.
Perhaps the most important
form of brain exercise may be reading books. You should read books by a variety
of literary authors, possibly from earlier periods of time, as this will
gradually instill an intuitive sense of good grammar.
skills and brain exercise:
Do you believe arithmetic is
something you left in the past? With most people now having calculators, they
rarely challenge their minds with mathematics. However, using a paper and
pencil or figuring out mathematics in your head is a great brain exercise. The
following are some ways to use numerical skills to tune up your brain cells:
When you go to the
supermarket, keep a running total of the amount of purchases in your head. You
can round the amount up or down to simplify the process. This will help you to
budget as well as enhancing your mental processes.
When traveling overseas you
have a lot of opportunities to use arithmetic for brain exercise. One of the
most important ways is to figure out quick and easy ways to estimate currency
Even things such as paying
tips at restaurants can be great as a form of brain exercise if you learn to
figure them out in your head.
