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!

This exercise will test your ability to use your underused sense of touch to visualize and draw an unknown object.

You will need to find several objects whose shape cannot be immediately identified. For example, a pair of scissors would be a bad choice. Try to find some uncommon objects like small toys or machine parts. Place these objects into an opaque bag or box and instruct people to feel inside the bag for an object. They should explore the object with their fingers and then try to draw it from memory. Have someone else find some objects for you to use.

After you have finished your drawing, remove the actual object and compare. How close did you get? With practice, you will get better at visualizing and drawing objects from memory.
