Brains are really cool!!! And our brains can adapt and change...that's called neuroplasticity!
Like our muscles, our memory requires us to “use it or lose it.” "Working out" our brain helps us more easily process and remember information. But not all brain workouts are equal. The best brain exercises shake up our routines and challenge us to use and develop new brain pathways. So, be brave, get engaged, and try something NEW!
