Am talking about our brain.
We can use it or lose it.
According to research, people who learn to juggle experience changes in the nerve strands that connect different parts of their brain. Makes sense, doesn’t it? So each time you learn something new or try to understand a new bit of information – your brain is making the effort and you can actually FEEL it. Which means, your brain actually enjoys doing tough stuff!
While not everyone is a juggler, just think about the last time you learned or tried something new? Like:
- a new language
- a crossword puzzle
- the instructions for a new equipment
- new information about something
- and lots more…
The fact is, our brain prefers to be used, stretched and challenged because it will get bored otherwise. Worse still – it may decide to close shop! Give it what it wants! And it will continue to be active and do its job – for a long long time. It is good for your health! And you have to admit – an active and busy brain is more fun.
