  • NEUROPLASTICITY

    Scientists used to believe that you were born

    with a certain set of neurons, and mental

    decline was an inevitable part of aging.

    Thankfully, they now know this isnt true. Your

    brain continues to create new neural

    connections throughout your entire life.

    So, why do you have trouble remembering and

    why dont you feel as sharp as you used to?

    These new connections must be put to work in

    order for them to survive and strengthen. You

    literally have to use them or you could lose

    them.

    You probably know that challenging your brain

    can combat age-related decline. Thats why

    crossword puzzles and Sudoku are so popular.

    You diligently work the daily puzzle in hopes

    that it will keep your brain in shape. Research

    shows its a nice start, but you need more.

    Your brain needs variety and novelty.

    Neuroplasticity, otherwise

    known as Brain Plasticity,

    refers to the changes in

    neural networks and

    pathways that are a result

    of development,

    environment, injury and

    stimulation.

    20 Ways To Boost Your Brain Power

    Think of it like this you go to the gym every

    day in hopes of getting and keeping a fit,

    strong body.

    You pick up the dumbbell and do three sets of

    right bicep curls.

    You put the dumbbell away, towel off, and go

    home. Sure, youre getting exercise your

    right arm looks great.

    Now, look at the rest of your body. Not so

    great. Same thing happens when you exercise

    just one part of your brain.

    This guide is designed to help you exercise

    and strengthen your brain. It includes twenty

    different ways which focus on diversity, which

    means youll exercise many areas of your

    brain.

  • BRAIN EXERCISE Do you use your right hand to grab your key and unlock your front

    door? Switch it around and try

    using your left.

    Take a different route to work,

    school, or the grocery store. Your

    brain is on autopilot most of the

    time, so wake it up by learning a

    new way.

    Recite the alphabet backwards.

    Try this, and youll feel your brain

    stretching as you move your way

    from Z to A.

    Get in the shower and start

    singing. A study published in The

    Psychology of Music showed that

    singing familiar tunes helps to

    improve spatial intelligence the

    reasoning your brain uses to judge

    distance.

    The key to brain exercise is

    to throw yourself a curve

    ball.

    BRAIN EXERCISE20 Ways To Boost Your Brain Power

    One of our favorites is called Neurobics which

    is a unique program from Lawrence Katz and

    Manning Rubin.

    Do something completely out of the ordinary,

    something that breaks your routine, and you

    can strengthen the connections in your brain.

    Here are some ideas:

  • IMPROVE MEMORY

    Your memory is divided into

    two main categories long term and short term (also known as working

    memory).

    IMPROVE MEMORY20 Ways To Boost Your Brain Power

    Your short-term memory allows you to

    remember things like a persons name or

    phone number.

    If youre a facts and figures kind of person,

    your working memory holds three to nine

    pieces of information (words, digits, etc.) for

    roughly up to twenty seconds.

    If you dont transfer that information over to

    your long-term memory (or write it down),

    youre going to forget it.

    Recent research revealed that exercising your

    working memory actually increases fluid

    intelligence.

    This is important news because scientists

    previously thought that intelligence was

    determined at birth, and there was nothing you

    could do about it.

    A study led by Dr. Susanne M. Jaeggi gave

    short term memory training to a group of

    volunteers and then tested them. Training for

    as little as eight days led to considerable

    gains, with those training over a longer period

    making the most improvement.

    A great way to exercise your working memory is to try n-back training. It is scientifically

    designed to work your aural and visual memory and has shown fluid intelligence

    improvements of up to 40%.

    Here is a detailed article chronicling a 19 day public trial of an n-back training program

  • MNEMONICSImproving your long-term memory is a breeze by using mnemonics, which are simple memory aids that help you store information for longperiods of time.

    MNEMONICS20 Ways To Boost Your Brain Power

    Have a look at the chart above.

    Read through the numbers, and visualize the

    rhymes that are presented.

    Now, say you want to remember your new PIN

    number, which is 6592.

    Replace each number with its rhyme, and

    create a story that links the numbers together.

    For example: 6592 becomes sticks, hive, wine, and

    shoe. Picture yourself throwing sticks at a bee

    hive. The hive breaks open like a piata, and

    instead of honey pouring out, wine comes gushing

    down. You run over and hold your shoe out to

    catch as much as you can.

    By forming a story, your memory can better

    store and retrieve your pin number whenever

    you need it.

    A mnemonic device, such as a poem or a

    song, can help you retain complex information

    that normally would be difficult for you to

    remember.

    Many people develop their own mnemonic

    devices by learning a song to help them

    remember information.

    Most of us, for example, learned to spell

    Mississippi by using a little song. Other people

    make up a story or a poem to increase

    retention.

    The Number Rhyme System is a great place

    to start. This mnemonic device replaces a

    number with a word. You then create a story

    using the words, and this story enables you to

    remember the numbers.

  • NUTRITIONWe all know proper nutrition is

    vital for building a healthy

    body. In addition to nourishing

    your body, some foods have

    been shown to boost

    brain power. Naturally, youll

    want to eat these foods in

    moderation, but

    theyre worth considering as a

    way to help you promote

    overall heath.

    *Always check with your personal physician

    before making changes to your diet.

    NUTRITION20 Ways To Boost Your Brain Power

    FishSalmon, cod, and herring are all rich with omega 3

    fatty acids, which help your brain grow new neurons

    and strengthen the connections already Formed.
