Physical exercise keeps our bodies fit and is an excellent way to help boost our brain power and create new neutrons.  However, here are a few fun ways to exercise that gray matter that you may not have tried:

Meditation relieves stress and activates the pre-frontal cortex, an area responsible for advanced thinking ability and performance.

Drawing a picture stimulates the right hemisphere of the brain and inspires creativity.  It doesn’t have to be a masterpiece; just get out the colored pencils and begin drawing.

Laughing causes a natural release of the brain’s endorphins–chemicals that drown out pain and increase overall well-being.

Debate strengthens the brain’s ability to think quickly and apply intelligence to verbal situations.  Work to build up your brain power by engaging in plenty of healthy debate.

Change your environment to stimulate your brain.  Drive a new route to work, eat at a new restaurant, or sit in a different spot.  Changing the environment helps change the brain!
