Mental exercise is just as important as physical exercise
But what to start with?
I’m Milena and I’m learning how to learn. Join me on my journey of:
- Setting up clear priorities
- Communicate clearly
- Creating healthy habits (and actually sticking to them)
- Improving memory
- And discovering how our brains work.
Why should we know more
These are just a few reasons on why excersising your brain is so important
Do you remember these seemingly never-ending lessons at school in which looking through the window was the most entertaining activity? Many people believe that learning has to be a boring or exhausting process. This is because they haven’t discovered their preferred and most effective learning method yet. Adjust your learning to make it fun and engaging – you will be impressed how quickly time flies by.
Having access to wa y more resources than ever before, we are exposed to knowledge that has been gathered by and from the smartest people throughout millennia. It depends on you if you want to learn from just one article on, let’s say 3D printing, or go for an online engineer designing master course. The more possibilities you explore, the clearer your vision on what to learn becomes. Figuring it out is already half of success.
There are two main types of motivation: internal and external. Unfortunately, at school we typically experience external motivation that comes solely from a teacher, and disappears as soon as they leave the classroom for a second. Inter nal motivation, however, comes directly from YOU. Once you have it, you don’t look for excuses to escape from learning, but rather focus on achieving your goals as you know you will benefit from them.
Feed your curiosity
Being curious is like being hungry. Studies show that the state of cuiosity activates the same regions in our brains that are associated with pleasure circuit – tasty food, morning coffee, good movie, etc. How are you going to feed your curiosity?
