How To Exercise Your Brain:

Make Connections -  it's true that some areas of the brain don't regenerate as we get older, but it's the connections between the brain cells that are important. We can create and strengthen these at anytime by keeping our brains stimulated.

Keep learning - make an effort to learn something new every day. Look up something you're interested in on the internet, or buy a magazine or book about it. Read a section each day. Or make an effort to find out something you didn't know about a colleague at work.

Variety is the key - surprise and challenge your brain by breaking your usual routine. Studies have shown that repetition and familiarity make it possible for the brain to adapt and achieve the same thing with less work. Simple changes, like brushing your teeth with your other hand or taking a different route to work can spark new neural pathways or activate dormant ones.

Challenge yourself - to improve your linguistic capabilities, try to complete quizzes and crosswords regularly. Write down a long word or a short phrase and see how many other words you can make from it. To improve your sensory capabilities, challenge your brain by trying to unlock your door with your eyes closed.

Total recall - tests show that short burst of study enable your brain to process and store information better and for longer.  When studying, make a plan beforehand and study for a maximum of one hour before having a break. If you can, go for a walk when you have a break, which will help your brain process the information you have given it.

Dream away - don't be afraid of daydreaming now and then. It encourages the creative side of your brain and can be relaxing. Listening to classical music such as Mozart or Bach has also been shown to have beneficial effects on the brain's capabilities, due to its logical structure. Try listening to some before study time.
