Mentalrobics™

You exercise your body to stay physically in shape, so why shouldn't you exercise your brain to stay mentally fit? With these daily exercises you will learn how to flex your mind, improve your creativity and boost your memory. As with any exercise, repetition is necessary for you to see improvement, so pick your favorite exercises from our daily suggestions and repeat them as desired. Try to do some mentalrobics every single day!

Emotional blocks can affect our ability to communicate our creative ideas to others. One of these emotional blocks is a fear of taking risks and making a mistake. Another block is the predilection to judge ideas prematurely. This is why deferring judgment is a strategy used by creative people.

Another emotional block is the inability to tolerate chaos or ambiguity. New ideas are by nature not perfect. They are going to be rough around the edges and may have conflicting points. Through an iterative refinement process, you will be able to resolve these ambiguities.

The lack of a challenge can also be an emotional block. If you are not challenged, then you are not going to be interested in the outcome and it is unlikely that you will be able to put a lot of creative energy into new and interesting ideas. Picking problems that interest you, or finding ways to add excitement to uninteresting problems will help.
