Get your mind up and running
FEELING a bit sluggish? Get your mind going with these tips.
Play video games
Some people might think that zapping alien spaceships that pop out from behind asteroids is goofing off but studies show that such action games help spur better hand- eye coordination and visuo- motor skills.
If you have a more complex game, it can help boost your decision- making skills, too.
Learn a language
When we speak, the words we use, and the sentences we create reflect our culture, the way we do things.
By learning a different language, you have a chance to look at the world in a different way.
Go somewhere new
Staying in your comfort zone can act as a straitjacket. Get out and absorb new opinions and ways of doing things. You may not always agree or find it comfortable, but by challenging yourself, you stretch your mind. It may also help you think of newer, better or different ways of tackling recurring obstacles in your life.
Any sort of exercise gets the blood pumping, which means that oxygen is transported throughout the body, boosting absorption of nutrients, the energy cycle of individuals cells and eliminating toxins from cells.
However, if you are unfit, consult your doctor first and see what sort of exercise plan will suit you best. You don’t want to strain anything or end up in the hospital.
