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!
You may be asking yourself why you should improve your memory and learning skills in this modern age of technology. You could always do a Google search to find information or plug something into your PDA to remember it!
On the contrary, good memory skills can help you in many situations where you don't have access to recording technology. What if you think of a brilliant idea in the shower? Or while driving? Not to mention that memory skills can increase your confidence in public speaking (since you will have the speech memorized), and save you the embarrassment of forgetting someone's name (you can't very well dig out your PDA to remember someone standing right in front of you!).
The other problem with modern technology is that it gives you an excuse to let your mind get lazy and forget something. If all of your passwords, phone numbers, and schedules are in your PDA, what happens when your batteries run dry or you leave it on the bus? It's impossible to leave your brain on the bus, so why not try to get more information into your head?
