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!

Transience refers to the fact that memories fade with time. Different memories fade at different rates for different people. This is mostly due to the frequency with which the memories are remembered.

Each time you recall a memory the neural pathways that make up that memory get triggered. This causes these neurons to strengthen and ensures that this memory will stick around a bit longer. If you rarely recall a memory, it will naturally fade into the background because it is probably unimportant.

This fact is why repetition and review are such important steps to do if you want to remember something. This is especially important for new memories, which are very fragile and can fade quickly unless you strengthen them.
