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!

Every brainstorm should have a large stack of paper and pens because one of the best ways to communicate your ideas in a Brainstorm is to be visual. Draw it, act it out, or make a little model out of pencils and rubber bands.

The more visual you can make your idea, the better you will be able to communicate it to the group, and the quicker they will be able to understand and build on it.

Another part of being visual is that all the ideas should be written where everyone can see them. A whiteboard or big sheet of paper works well for this. Write big so everyone can read the ideas. At the end of the brainstorm, you can have everyone use Post-its or colored markers to vote for their favorite ideas.

Which is a better way to study?

A) You study an entire book.
B) You study one chapter at a time and test yourself after each one.

You will learn better and remember more using method B. Frequent feedback is an important part of learning for several reasons:

First, it shows you how much you are learning, which helps keep you motivated and interested in studying. If you never give yourself feedback, you may lose interest or your mind may wander.

Second, it helps reinforce the information in your memory by using repetition.

Third, it lets you know what information you haven't learned yet and might need to study again.

To give yourself feedback, you might study with a friend and quiz each other, or you might make up your own test questions and quiz yourself.
