Exercise Your Brain

New challenges and activities can strengthen your brain. Here are some easy tips to help you get a little smarter every day.

Thinking of your brain as a muscle is actually a great analogy, even if it’s not technically accurate. If you don’t exercise a muscle, it weakens; it atrophies. If you exercise that muscle in exactly the same way over and over, day in and day out, the muscle won’t atrophy, but it won’t grow or develop. If you consistently use that muscle in new ways, though—if you stretch it, push it and challenge it, you’ll grow that muscle and make it stronger. That’s exactly the way the brain works. Challenge your brain in new ways as often as possible, and you’ll be stronger and smarter than you were the day before.
