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!

The goal of a Brainstorm is to come up with many different possible solutions to a problem. Be prolific! Don't dwell on any particular thought unless you are building on it. There will be plenty of time to think about the details of each idea at a later date.

The moderator should try to maintain the energy and pace of the meeting by keeping people on track and forcing them to go on to the next idea. If someone is going into a long-winded explanation of something, the moderator should interrupt them and ask for a one-sentence summary.

Having a quota for the number of ideas you want to produce is a good motivator for the group. Try for at least 100 ideas in a half-hour brainstorm.

Studies show that where you learn something has an effect on your ability to recall the information at a later date. In particular, your ability to remember something is improved if you learn the information in the same or similar location that you will recall it. This is because the context in which you learn the material serves as a landmark for your memory.

To use this to your advantage, you should study your subject in the location where you will be expected to recall it. For example, if you are studying for a test, you could study the material in the same classroom (or similar classroom) where you are going to be tested. If you are memorizing lines for a play, you could do it in the theater where you will be performing.

If you don't know where you will be expected to recall the information, or if you can't replicate the environment, then you should try to study the material in a variety of different places so you don't get tied to one particular location.

Studies also show that your body position affects your accuracy at recalling information. So, if you are going to be sitting down while taking your test, it might be a good idea to be seated when you study for it, as opposed to lying down.
