Brain training – Reprogram your mind
Most people like to remain as physically active as possible, however the question is – why don’t we invest the same amount of time in caring about our minds? Everyone talks about going for regular gym sessions and eating healthy, but not many talk about the importance of a healthy mental well-being. Little do we know that our brains also require the same necessities as this is directly interlinked with our physical health. Indulging in regular brain exercises is key to long-term success. According to latest research studies in Neuroscience, our brains reach its peak performance rate between the age of 16 and 25. Post this age, the cognitive functioning of a brain gradually declines. However, it is also been discovered that irrespective of the age, training through brain exercises can certainly benefit you!
Brain training challenges and targets one’s memory, logic, verbal skills, and attention. Brain training centers like ours offer personal exercises that can help you remain mentally active and energized. With regular brain training, people become more efficient and pick up speed at completing their day-today tasks including everything from running errands, completing grocery shopping to engaging in technical tasks. Brain training exercises even improve your memory with results that last for at least 5 years post the exercise.
Another benefit of indulging in these brain training exercises is that they are not restricted to a set age group. To further delve into this subject, a COGITO Study was conducted at Max-Planck Institute where a total of 101 young adults between the age group of 21 and 30 participated. Both of these groups underwent a total of 100 hours of training through brain exercises that were primarily focused on memory, speed and accuracy. It was identified that all the participants saw a significant improvement and with time, the results only flourished further.
Apart from improving brain characteristics, studies also reveal that they can be a great support while dealing with memory-loss conditions such as Alzheimers. A group of professors from the University Institute of Gériatrie de Montréal reported drastic improvements in people who were victims of mild cognitive impairment including dementia post brain training . These results clearly indicate that brains are trainable if the training is well-tailored to one’s individual needs.
In order to magnify the results of these exercises, there are numerous factors that make them effective. One of them is curating a personalized brain training session as it will be directly linked to your performance, strengths and weakness that these exercises could further amplify or diminish. The next factor would be setting a goal for oneself. As soon as you quantify your goal, you will be able to target the specific brain functions that require improvement or intensification. Lastly, your motivation, and perseverance can maximize these results! At the end of the day, it is what you want to achieve and your determination that will support you through this process.
