Develop Your Own Brain
And Start to Think Like a
Question: Why would you want to develop your
own brain fitness program?
Answer: So you don't get called a fat head!
We live in an image driven society. However, you will notice
that people accept and overlook physical imperfections if that
person is clever, witty and fascinating to be around.
It is good to be physically fit, but it is even more
important to be mentally fit. If you have a sharp, perceptive
mind you will be alert to new opportunities. If you are
creative and innovative, you can spark ideas that generate a
personal fortune for you. Being intellectually alert and sharp
as a tack is the new must-have skill in a world where 'nerds'
can become billionaires in their early 20s!
The brain is often likened to a muscle in that we can 'use
it or lose it'. The brain 'muscle' doesn't become bigger with
exercise but the density of the brain cells increases and the
strength of their connections grows too.
What exercise weights and machines should you
include in your brain gym?
Puzzles: completing puzzles uses the front part
of your brain which controls planning, decision-making and
memory; so playing with puzzles strengthens the connections in
Crosswords: Increasing your vocabulary boosts
the density of the cells in the part of the brain associated
with verbal intelligence. Vocabulary and verbal abilities are
used to determine IQ, so exercising this area will increase it.
Cryptic crosswords offer particularly challenging brain fitness
workouts. They call upon lateral, logical thinking. This boosts
connections between brain cells and maximises your
problem-solving skills. Try a variety of crosswords to keep
testing your brain.
Games: There are many brilliant brain fitness
games available online and off. Search out those that have been
authored or sanctioned by reputable neuroscientists. These can
provide a range of progressive and fun exercises to challenge
all aspects of your intelligence.
Neuro-stimulation: From biofeedback to mind
machines to brain entrainment CDs, there is a wealth of new
technology dedicated to helping you achieve optimum brain
fitness. Brainwave entrainment offers an easy way of exercising
your brain by using the natural process of entrainment to train
the brain to generate and hold on to peak performance brain
So what should your brain fitness program consist
IQ tests tend to be overly focused on specific mental skills
such as language, mathematics, pattern recognition and logic.
However, there are at least 9 different types of intelligence.
If you only include one type of brain exercise within your
mental fitness program, you will become over-developed in that
one area. London taxi drivers, for example, learn every street
in the city and so they have a very overdeveloped hippocampus
(the part of the brain that memorises places).
Here is a list of your multiple intelligences with
suggestions for ways of exercising that
1. Verbal: Crosswords, word games, comprehension
exercises, journalling, story telling, debating, learning
2. Numerical/Logical: maths sums and puzzles (eg.
sudoko), brain teasers, whodunnits, budget planning, problem
solving, deductive thinking.
3. Visual-Spatial: practice visualization,
mind-mapping, drawing, photography, manipulation and
visualization of 3-D objects, mime, use computer graphics
4. Musical: learn and play a musical instrument,
create spontaneous songs, jingles and poems, study with baroque
music for super-learning effects, use binaural beats for brain
5. Bodily-Kinesthetic: practice hand-eye
coordination sports like ping-pong, go jogging or for walks,
learn dance, martial arts, yoga, give and recieve massage,
develop and explore your senses.
6. Interpersonal-Social: Teach something, work in
teams, partner on learning activities, build your conversation
skills, cultivate new friendships.
7. Intrapersonal-Intuitive: meditation,
journalling, listening to intuition, try and anticipate what
people are like before you meet them, try and get a read on
other people's feelings, identify your core values and
8. Naturalist: study nature, care for pets, look to
nature for direct or indirect solutions to human problems.
9. Spiritual: cultivate spiritual values and
principles, peacefully discuss beliefs, contemplate the big
questions, think bigger than this brief period in time.
Developing a brain fitness program that suits you is not
easy. But the rewards are potentially huge. Being a smarter,
quicker thinker gives you an advantage over your peers. You
will make more money. You will enjoy greater success. You will
feel more fulfilled. And perhaps more importantly you will
enjoy better mental health as you age. Make brain fitness a
priority in your life.
