My continuing saga about personal trainers for the brain got a little boost in the current edition of BOSS magazine. An article supports the idea of keeping the brain mentally tuned and fit. It cites Elkhonon Goldberg a professor of neurology at New York University who invites particpants to his Mind Gym for an hour three times a week for a customised programme of exercises. The article adds:
‘Seeking out new challenges, particularly in areas very different from our everyday work activities, enhances creative thinking skills, taking us out of the established patterns that our brains slip into in daily work.’
The article adds that it is not just exercise but diet and calmness PLUS exercise gives your brain the best chance. Could not agree more. By the way it gives a web ref to mindtools for tests and exertcises.
