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!

Start a box or folder for clippings of interesting articles, pictures, or notes. Any time you see something in a magazine or newspaper that sparks your imagination, tear it out and put it in your box. If you can't tear it out, take a photo or make a little sketch and put that in your box instead.

Whenever you need inspiration for something, dig through your box of clippings for ideas that you can apply to your current project. If you have the space, you could pin the clippings up on the wall instead of storing them in a box. This way, you can be reminded of an idea whenever you walk by the wall.

From time to time, go through your clippings and get rid of ideas that are out of date or no longer interest you.

A new study provides evidence that people who meditate are improving their brains. MRI brain scans showed that meditating can increase the thickness of the cortex by causing blood vessels to expand and neurons to have increased branching. The areas that involve attention and sensory processing seem to be the most affected.

In a different study, sleep-deprived volunteers were given mental reaction tests. They were then instructed to either take a short nap or meditate. They were then retested. The volunteers who meditated showed superior performance on the tests, even though they had no prior experience with meditation.
