All about brain exercises

The brain is not a stagnant realm fed with a granted quota of intelligence and memory at birth. It is always in a state of flux. Exercising your brain in various ways accelerates its ability to perform better. It is in your hands to have a sharper take on situations and occurrences. Playing games that require brainstorming, solving quizzes, crosswords or playing chess makes you feel rejuvenated and tired at the same time; the reason being activated brain cells. A healthy brain will affect your life decisions positively and you probably will think rightly before you leap.

Tips to exercise those brain cells:

1. Meditate and calm your mind: ten minutes of meditation each day can help you get over anxiety. When your mind is at peace you think out pros and cons with enhanced insight. This composure reflects in each of your actions. Meditation demands your brain to be quiet when it is accustomed to work; you therefore have greater control over it.

2. Music can improve your brain abilities: music is the best antidote for a sloppy brain. Music excites the neurons healing a bruised memory. It gifts you with clarity of thought. Apart from listening to music one must try to play a musical instrument. Teaching yourself things puts your mind through a strict regimen of constructive activities.

3. Take out time to learn a new language: we are paralyzed the minute our brain gives up. Due to several external and internal reasons each one of us is likely to suffer from cognitive disorders on being subjected to extreme pressure or shock. Trying to learn a new language motivate your brain cells to have a wider vocabulary, which further restricts your chances of brain damage.

4. Mental mathematics could better your intelligence: calculators, computers and phones are ridding us of our ability to compute individual data. Computation and consolidation of data helps your mind to work faster with precision. So, you now know those lessons on mental mathematics in childhood were actually the key to a well-rounded brain.

5. Think of something novel: the more the number of neurons the merrier is your brain. Take pains to direct your mind on a novel track. Thinking beyond what is given and expected helps your brain grow new neurons. It builds up your creativity letting you discover more of your capabilities.

Hi, You have problem of cross dressing. It can be cured if you don't like it. There is a treatment for this too, but for now would like you to practice Mindful Breathing The primary goal of mindful breathing is simply a calm, nonjudging awareness, allowing thoughts and feelings to come and go without getting caught up in them. Sit comfortably, with your eyes closed and your spine reasonably straight. Bring your attention to your breathing. Imagine that you have a balloon in your tummy. Every time you breathe in, the balloon inflates. Each time you breathe out, the balloon deflates. Notice the sensations in your abdomen as the balloon inflates and deflates. Your abdomen rising with the in-breath, and falling with the out-breath. Thoughts will come into your mind, and that’s okay, because that’s just what the human mind does. Simply notice those thoughts, then bring your attention back to your breathing. Likewise, you can notice sounds, physical feelings, and emotions, and again, just bring your attention back to your breathing. You don’t have to follow those thoughts or feelings, don’t judge yourself for having them, or analyse them in any way. It’s okay for the thoughts to be there. Just notice those thoughts, and let them drift on by, bringing your attention back to your breathing. Whenever you notice that your attention has drifted off and is becoming caught up in thoughts or feelings, simply note that the attention has drifted, and then gently bring the attention back to your breathing. It's okay and natural for thoughts to enter into your awareness, and for your attention to follow them. No matter how many times this happens, just keep bringing your attention back to your breathing. Practice this daily for 15 minutes. Get back to me then All the best.

I ve not much concentration on my studies. I ve tried to do meditation, but I couldn't do well with it too. Is it a serious one to bother?

Hello lybrate user it happens sometimes that when you do meditation, the results won't come up so quickly. You have to make it as your lifestyle. Also try to first learn it from a expert. You you can combine it with yoga or some physical exercises. For concentration, you can also try doing some puzzles like word search. Also please reflect upon on your study routine. When we study for long period of time are concentration loosen up. So we do need break in between. Please feel free to give your feedback. Take care.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Memory and mind power depends on three aspects. Understanding, retention and recollection. Recollection is easy if your retention is proper and flawless. Retention is possible when you are able understand what you read or learn. To understand you should have concentration. Concentration comes from effective learning techniques based on creative and active learning. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, socializing coupled with systematic learning improves your memory and mind power. Vegetables, fruits and nuts are perfect for memory. Brain games like sudoku and jigsaw puzzles helps too. I suggest online education counseling. Take care.

Ask him what makes him angry, and try to avoid that thing. Also tell him with love that he does look better and more nice when he is in calm mood. Say if he will not scold you and try to make you understand the issue, you will be able to do it correct way next time. Finally tell him that if he behaves properly you will happy and do work as per his desire. Any sane man will understand and will consider your point. All the best

Dear, you must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Take care.

I just don't enjoy the things I used to, and I don't feel much like visiting friends or family. Is this part of aging?

Not at all. You are probably going through some depression and I suspect that your hormonal imbalances may be effecting this reaction. Kindly meet with a counselor and if that person feels you need to meet with a doctor, kindly do so and cooperate with both of them. Even if you are pit on medication do not discontinue the counseling until the depression is fully resolved. If it is only to do with the hormones, it will resolve itself in some time. Yet a visit to a counselor is advised.

Respected Sir, Depression is a medical or psychiatric diagnosis that can and should only be diagnosed after consultation with a psychiatrist. It is not just a sad mood that persists for a certain duration. It is a syndrome characterized by Depressed mood, loss of interest, decreased energy, easy fatiguability, decreased concentration, reduced self esteem, changes in your sleep, activity, appetite and also accompanies by depressive ideas such as hopelessness, helplessness, worthlessness and guilt. There are many other components for you to be diagnosed with depression. Hence first confirm your diagnosis after a proper consult and then search for the remedy. However if its not depression and just a sadness, even then I would need to know the reason or triggering factors behind your current condition to help you properly.

Aspen is useful in management of vague and unknown fear. The aforesaid symptom is otherwise called “free floating anxiety” in psychiatry. The fear comes of its own and after remaining for an hour or more, goes off its own. Also, aspen is useful when you have to go to any office for the first time to get job done. Hesitation with strangers, this remedy is almost specific for shyness and timidity.

Dear, Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power.

Dear, anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. I can help you with the tips and tricks. Take care.

Dear , the duty of your mind is to think. You cannot control your mind's thinking. But certainly you can divert your thinking. You can make your mind to be always positive by engaging in creative activities, hobbies, games and passionate towards whatever you do. Thereby you can reduce your stress and tension also. Once you can do this, loss of proper sleep and stress also can be made normal. I can help you with this. Take care.
