Brain power tips

Be more creative and express yourself in different ways - The human brain has two main divisions that represent two very distinct thinking centers: the creative center and the logic center.

The logic center of the brain is often used for problem solving, rationalizing, etc. while the creative center is used primarily for self-expression.

Most of the time, people overuse their logic centers while completely ignoring their creative sides. It's fine if you work in an environment that requires you to use your logic center more (i.e. you're a computer programmer or mathematician); however, you still need to balance your use of both sides of the brain so your brain power won't take a hit.

The easiest way to stimulate your creative center is by engaging in music, art and writing. These three activities should be enough for anyone because once you start on just one of these activities, I'm sure your days and nights will be filled with pure personal enjoyment and more importantly, brain challenges in the form learning how to do things right.

For example, if you want to learn how to sketch realistic human figures, you have to learn how to draw accurate lines on paper. All that effort challenges the brain and the brain responds by increasing the number of connections it has.

Don't settle for plain, ordinary solutions - We live in a society that values instant gratification. Now I'm not saying that there's anything wrong with this type of thinking, all I'm saying is that if you settle for quick fixes and plain solutions each and every time, your mind will stagnate and you will feel uncreative and unmotivated.

This is the reason why you should always try to arrive at more creative solutions to problems. It's not that you don't want to solve your issues or problems with time-tested solutions. You can apply those solutions but you can think of novel solutions at the same time. Spark those neurons and brain cells!

Challenge your beliefs - Each person has a comfort zone. It's time to step out f this comfort zone so you can begin learning new things. For example, if you believe that sports aren't right for you at all, maybe it's time that you tried badminton or swimming. Who knows? You may have been holding yourself back just because you were afraid that people won't appreciate your athletic ability. Why not prove them wrong by challenging yourself today?
