Conventional wisdom holds that we use just 10 percent of our brain brain cells. That’s pretty surprising, considering all of the things we do on a daily basis such as checking email, staying connected with friends on Facebook and keeping out with our social lives. While one would think that we are working to train our brain during these tasks, in most cases, we’re not. Instead, we’re filling our heads with tasks that drive us off track and keep us from really using our brain cells.
What can you do to help train your brain?
To help train your brain there are a lot of things you can do. The most important one is to keep it busy. This doesn’t mean to create a long to-do list and to get to work. Instead, to train your brain, give your brain things to do that will keep it busy. If you’re like 51% of the population that has a smartphone, you might want to consider putting yours to better use. While these gadgets help us do lots of things between email, the Internet, social networks and games, there’s a bigger use for them – training your brain. Smartphones can in fact be a great tool to help train your brain. We’re not talking just playing any old mobile game though (like Angry Birds), we’re talking about games that can help you train and stimulate your brain (and be fun at the same time).
