Thinking Builds Connections

Recent research on the physical results of thinking have clearly demonstrated that just challenging your  brain by thinking actually increases the number of connections between your brain cells. The more we think, the better our brain function – regardless of age.

The famed researcher Dr. Marion Diamond says the brain can change at any age. In fact, older brains may often have an advantage. She discovered that highly developed neurons respond even better to intellectual enrichment than less developed (younger) ones do. You can build your mind power, regardless of your age!

Walking Builds Brain Power
Walking is especially good for your brain and mind power, because it increases blood circulation, and thus more oxygen and glucose reach your brain. And since walking isn’t strenuous, your muscles use up the extra oxygen and glucose like they do during more intense forms of exercise.

Walking may seem to clear your head and help you to think better because is oxygenates your brain. Also the increased blood flow to the brain enhances your brain’s energy production and waste removal. Several studies now show that in response to exercise, cerebral blood vessels grow, even in middle-aged, in response to exercise.

A Toe Wiggle Brain Exercise
Wiggling your toes  immediately activates a set of nerves that stimulate your brain and internal organs?  Try this mind power exercise in the morning before you get out of bed: Slowly begin to move your toes any way that feels good to you. Try moving them all and once, and then in smaller groups.

You can also do this exercise after sitting for an extended period of time. You will be surprised at how it helps you become more alert and energized.

A Daily Brain Building Exercise
Here’s a do it now exercise that will immediately develop your mind power by creating new physical neural connections: Switch the hand you’re using to control your computer mouse and begin to use the hand you normally avoid.  If you immediately feel uncomfortable and awkward, that’s a good sing that your brain is struggling to learn a new skill.

Try expanding this to other everyday routines such as getting out of bed on the opposite side, holding your brush or toothbrush with the other hand, driving a different route to the store or work, etc.

Brainwave Training
In the final analysis, the fastest way to build your mind power is through the regular use of engineered brainwave training. There’s a reason Dr. Deepak Chopra calls brainwave training the medicine of the future. You can immediately bust your stress, develop amazing mental clarity, and even raise your IQ or overcome ADD and ADHD. Check out the Self Growth Planet!
