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 recall and recreate sounds in your mind. This stretches the part of the brain where audio is stored. Close your eyes and try to hear the following sounds:

1. Opening a can of soda
2. A jackhammer
3. A bee buzzing around you head
4. A harmonica
5. Your best friend's voice

How well did you do at reproducing these sounds in your head? With practice you'll get better at imagining sounds.

Vitamin B12 is a compound that is essential for proper brain functioning. This vitamin helps keep neurons healthy by maintaining the myelin sheath that protects the axons. Insufficient vitamin B12 can cause serious and permanent damage to the neurons, which can lead to memory loss, fatigue and slowed thinking.

Vitamin B12 is found in fish, meat, poultry, eggs, milk and fortified breakfast cereals. Vegetarians and vegans should be careful to make sure they are getting enough B12 as part of their diet, or via supplements.

Age, smoking and drinking are all factors that contribute to deficiencies in vitamin B12, however it is possible for a deficiency to occur because of a problem absorbing the vitamin through digestion. If this is the case, eating more B12 will not help; the individual will need to get monthly injections.
