8 ways to exercise your brain

Who doesn't want to be smarter? Who doesn't want their smarts to last as longs as they do?



Apparently their are 8 things you can do to help:



1. PLAY HEAD GAMES
Brain games may help improve mental function, and could possibly help prevent dementia.
2. TRAIN YOUR BRAIN
The training exercises included:
-Memory: To help people memorize word lists, one method was to organize a grocery list by the sections of the store, said Marsiske, an associate professor in the department of clinical health and psychology at the University of Florida.



-Visualization: Use all your senses to remember things. For example, if you need to remember a dog's name, visualize what the dog's fur feels like, recall the sound of its bark, and, yes, try to re-create its smell.



-Reasoning: Participants learned to use highlighters to identify key points in complicated information. That included underlining important information like dosage and frequency on a medication.
3. TAXES



4. BUILD YOUR "COGNITIVE RESERVE
If we do things to produce healthy brains early in life, then we will benefit from that later in life
5. REMEMBER PASSWORDS

6. RETHINK YOUR CROSSWORD PUZZLE

7. APRENDER EL ESPAÑOL

8. EXERCISE YOUR BODY
