There are only twenty-four hours in a day, and you have lots of things to do such as working, doing chores, fetching your kids from, buying groceries, and so much more.
So busy, huh?
Well, it’s no wonder that you barely have time to just sit down and read a couple of books or perhaps magazines or newspapers.
You’ve hears tons of people tell you how reading is good for your brain. It’s not that you don’t value your brain.
It’s just that you don’t have the time.
Even if you wanted to take the time to read, when you get back home from work or whatever it is you went to do, you’ll be too tired to even read.
Even if you did force yourself to read, it would still be no use since you won’t be able to understand what you read.
The reading would be for nothing.
Some say this is an invalid excuse because if you really want to make time for something, you’ll find a way, no matter how busy you think you are.
That’s not the reason why not being able to take care of your brain is inexcusable. The reason it’s inexcusable is because reading isn’t the only way to do good things for your brain.
It just happens to be the most popular way, but it most certainly is not the only way.
There are lots of ways by which you can take care of the one organ that is responsible for the entire operation of your body.
And guess what?
It doesn’t even have to take so much of your time, just a few minutes will do.
Memorize at least one thing every single day
It can be fun. You never know.
Maybe you’re riding a bus to a faraway city. You can memorize at least one building in your path.
Memorize the landmarks, stuff like that.
That’s sure to make your journey fun.
Apart from being fun, it’s also useful. Why? Well, you never really know if you get stranded in that specific place.
Well, if that ever happens, it will be a lot easier for you to find you way.
By doing this technique, everyday you’ll be sharpening your memory skills.
Start detaching to material things a little more each day
There are lots of opportunities in life that in the back of your mind, you just love to seize, but you never do because something is getting in the way: gadgets, or whatever material possession you’re obsessing on.
Try to detach to material possessions each day.
Not only does material things get in the way of your happiness and success, it also makes you dumber and lazier.
Well, technically you’re not a dummy, but sometimes people rely so much on their favorite gadgets that they forget to do simple things.
It also makes us lazy.
When people become lazy, they end never achieving anything, even when presented with so many opportunities.
You won’t be able to grab any opportunity even if it hits you right in the face.
