Happy #NationalTrainYourBrainDay !

This day was created to encourage everyone to engage in activities that would expand and exercise their brain to use more of its potential capacity.

Here are suggested things that you can do to train your mind and improve your resiliency and cognitive skills:

  • Read more.
    • Find topics, genres, authors, and/or bloggers who interest you the most and dive into it! It’s been said that “you become what you think about,” so also try finding things that offer positive and motivational messages that provide a great sense and powerful food for thought.

“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”
― Dr. Seuss

  • Learn something new.
    • Whether it’s a new skill, podcast, hobby, dance, or foreign language, allow yourself to expand by creating new and fun opportunities for a mental adventure. Make it exciting. Why not have fun in the process!

“Unless you try to do something beyond what you have already mastered, you will never grow.” – Ronald E. Osborn

  • Get moving.
    • Being physically fit also improves the mental fitness of your brain. Briefly exercising for just 20 minutes facilitates information processing and memory functions, allowing you to learn faster and increase your alertness. Check out Healthy Campus’s Wellness Zone for tips and resources!

“To me, good health is more than just exercise and diet. It’s really a point of view and a mental attitude you have about yourself.” Albert Schweitzer
