COLORADO SPRINGS, CO – Your sister wants to lose weight. Your boss wants to quit smoking. Your cousin wants to get out of debt and repair his bad credit. Sound familiar? It should. They’re the same unmet goals from last year. And the year before.
What would happen if you broke away from the pack of standard “lose,” “quit” and “fix” and instead opted to improve something you’re going to use for the rest of your life? That’s exactly what personal brain training company LearningRx is helping people do by sharing seven ways to boost your brain power in 2017. Here are the highlights:
- Start exercising.
Research now shows that even light to moderate aerobic exercise improves oxygen consumption, which helps the brain to function better. In the elderly, aerobic exercise—such as walking, bicycling or yoga—has actually been found to reduce brain cell loss.
Bonus benefits: You’ll likely meet new people and lose weight.
- Read more.
A new study from Yale University School of Public Health has found that reading books may extend your lifespan by up to two years. In addition, a 2013 study by researchers from Rush University Medical Center found that reading may slow dementia.
Bonus benefits: Reduced stress, improved sleep, enhanced social skills, greater IQ.
- Enroll in personal brain training.
One-on-one brain training incorporates immediate feedback, intensity, and loading, among other features, to target brain skills. Effective brain training targets attention, auditory processing, and memory, along with visual processing, logic & reasoning and/or processing speed to make thinking, learning, reading and remembering easier and faster. “I enrolled my freshman son in brain training at LearningRx,” says Dr. Anne Murphy, Associate Professor and Associate Director of the Neuroscience Institute at Georgia State University. “He was struggling academically and things were not ‘sticking.’ At the end of his training, my son’s cognitive skills improved dramatically. One of the best things was that his school performance progressively and consistently improved, and along with it, my son’s confidence level. We went from a solid lower C student to an A/B student.”
Bonus benefits: Better time management and organization can mean better finances, more time for exercise and fun, and greater productivity at work.
