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!

Our minds thrive on novelty and atrophy when they are under stimulated. Boredom is the negative emotion that results from this under stimulation and lack of interesting things to do. You may have noticed that it is difficult to be creative with a task that you are not interested in doing. This is because boredom is stressful and inhibits our creativity.

The brain quickly adapts to its experiences, which is why you can get bored doing something that previously brought you pleasure. Once something turns into a routine or habit, the mind pays less attention to it. In order to avoid boredom our minds are constantly seeking new experiences.

A new website, called BoredGourd.com, is devoted to helping people find new experiences and avoid boredom. It also helps people have more social interactions by creating communities and conversations around shared interests.
