Our brains can outstretch more than we can ever imagine. From memories in the past to future plans, our brains can process them all. Within a few seconds, the brain can go from this topic to that issue. Remembering people’ faces, places’ names and vocabulary are few additional things the brains can work.
The brains can either do many things or very few items depending our treatment on them. Much like muscles, the brains require exercises. Gradual workouts will not only enhance the brains working capacity but also help us dealing with memory as we age.
Reading has long been known as a powerful way to train the brains. To keep the brains well working, daily reading is recommended. As information stream has been flowing swifter than ever, readers may get trapped with what type of reading that brings optimum benefit for the brains.
At this point, rising our reading bar is necessary. Whichever kind of materials that you love to read, enhancing our reading preference with good intention can help us so much to keep the brains remain in proper exercise.
First of all, you can stay on the track of reading themes that you really love but now with various sub themes. For instance, you like reading about fashion. While for the past few years, all you read is about latest fashion trend, why don’t you now try gaining insight on history of each fashion item? Don’t you think reading that sub topic will encourage you linking what the fashion item has to do with certain cultural value of specific region or country?
Secondly, you can try reading books about topics that don’t really excite you but they are important. Let us say, you dislike politic but whether you like it or not, politic is vital for each nation building. This may take extra effort to complete reading books about politic but once you try, you give yourself room to open parts of your brains expanding for gathering new knowledge.
The third part can be reading books about controversial issues that stir up conspiracy theories from those interested on them. Find out past cases that bring up discussions among people in the world. Like history about Adolf Hitler, Osama Bin Laden, Bermuda Triangle and world’s famous leaders that spark your curiosity. Read as many as you can and draw your own conclusion. Doing this will increase your level not only as a reader but as a researcher for the benefits of your brain.
With those recommendations I hope you and I will never get bored in reading. Stay up high in gaining information everyone because our brains need to stay refreshed and smart!
