Exercise For Your Brain by Susan Tolles

One inarguable fact of aging—the older we get, the fuzzier our brains get. Whether it’s from hormonal imbalances, years of multi-tasking, or just plain being tired, our memory fades and we find it harder to concentrate on the smallest tasks.

We enter a room and wonder “why did I come in here?” We forget to put on our mascara before going out, and we can’t remember the names of people we’ve known for years.

To keep our brains healthy, we are encouraged to “exercise” them regularly. Things like learning a new language, doing crossword puzzles or playing scrabble, painting, or even reading will strengthen our brain muscle fibers and keep those neurotransmitters healthy.

An interesting exercise to stimulate your senses and give your brain a good workout is called “non-dominant handwriting,” and it is a great way to really stretch your mind and challenge it to be creative in new ways. You might even be surprised at how your subconscious mind directs your answers and gives you new insight into your “inner self.”
