Start your day by giving your brain new experiences to keep it healthier. Try switching around your morning activities for a change.
Brain imaging studies show that novel tasks exercise large areas of the cortex, indicating increased levels of brain activity in several distinct areas. This activity declines when the task becomes routine and automatic.
Travel to work by taking the public transport, try a new route, or change your TV or news station. Even watching a kids’ program may arouse the brain to notice how much of what you take for granted is explored in depth by children.
