Train your Brain

So they say that we have only utilised around 10% of our brains . I recently read that even that is incorrect thinking because our brains have infinite potential, so a percentage of infinity is impossible.

Shouldn’t we be striving to explore this potential? Even if it is infinite and therefore unconquerable, that is just more liberating. I would rather spend my time exploring the infinite than settling for 10% that I put through a slow death of alcohol and TV commercials.

So how do we do it? We should strive to devote more time to focus and learning; to trying new things.

Here’s just a few ideas on how to train your brain. And we should all share these ideas so we can grow together. So post more in the comments as you think of them.

  • Reading
  • Meditating
  • Playing or listening to music
  • Staying healthy physically (your brain is a physical thing anyway)
  • Writing
  • Nintendo Brain Training
  • Learning a language
  • Sharing ideas – seriously write down some more in the comments section
