How Can You Train Your Brain?

In the past few years there have been many dazzling news stories that have claimed that anything from sudoku puzzles to playing video games can boost our mental faculties.

But as ever, there’s a wide range of conflicting viewpoints on these theories. So here’s a quick look at what represents the best way to keep our grey matter in tip-top condition.

Video games

Whilst many social commentators have warned about the negative effects of video games, it seems that a few forward-thinking people have seen the potential for video games to help boost our powers of memory.

That’s the thinking behind popular games like Nintendo’s Brain Age game that was devised by Dr Kawashima as a way to help increase our mental focus in today’s short-attention span culture.

And what’s best is that it seems that anything from a simple game of Sudoku, to the strategic online card games like poker and blackjack at Lucky Nugget Casino all have a power to keep our brains sharper.

However, scientists have yet to find our how the skills learned whilst playing these games can be transferred to regular life. And so it seems that there’s more to brain health than just playing video games!

Learning a second language

Whilst learning a foreign language might not be as fun as some online casino games, recent research suggests that language learning could slow down the way that our brains age.

This adds to the previous studies that show that learning a second language can help us work more efficiently and even stave off illnesses like dementia.

And what’s best is that it doesn’t seem to matter when we attempt to pick up another language, as better thinking skills can be boosted through language learning no matter what stage of life we are at.

Physical considerations

However, it’s also important to remember the physical aspects of the brain too. Regardless of how many online casino games we play, or how many languages we learn, getting enough oxygen to the brain to stop cells from dying is a critical part of mental fitness.

This is why a good dose of regular exercise can work wonders in keeping oxygenated blood coming to the brain which helps to boost memory and aid thinking skills.

So rather than focusing on one activity, it seems that there is a balanced and active approach can help us train how brain in the best way possible.
