Brain training: More than sudoku

Your brain is important for a lot of things in your life. This is because it regulates all kinds of conscious and unconscious processes there. You may have noticed that the math sums you did in high school aren’t so easy by now, but that’s not crazy at all. After all, you are no longer training your brain on those math sums.

Like muscle strength, training your brain is important to maintain certain skills.

But training your brain is more than playing a game of sudoku on a regular basis. Sure, it’s helpful for your resolution skills, but did you know that training your mind can get a lot done in terms of seeing and arising opportunities in your life?

Just as you can train your problem-solving abilities with brain training, you can also train your thoughts with brain training. By having more positive thoughts, and training on those kinds of thoughts, you can make sure that you are more motivated, and that has all kinds of nice consequences.

Brain training exercises

There are a number of exercises you can do to train your brain to have more helpful thoughts to create a life that suits you. You are helping your brain with this kind of exercise to re-encode the things you see, to give them meaning again and to be more aware of the things in your life that you want or experience or want to pull into your life[1].

  • Visualizations

A first way to train your brain is to apply visualizations. Visualizations also help your brain signal to your body to perform certain tasks[2]. You see a lot of athletes using visualizations, but you can also very well visualize a perfectly given presentation.

  • Repeating affirmations

You can repeat affirmations out loud or put them in a journal of sorts daily. For example, you write down what you want to achieve and why[3]. You make an affirmation with the idea that your goal is already achieved. For example, if you want to have more positive thoughts so that you have more energy you can write them down as follows.

“I have more and more positive thoughts, and so I have more energy.”

  • Mindfulness

Mindfulness is a way of thinking that causes you to stay in the here and now. This can help maintain brain function later in life and this can improve your ability to concentrate for work, for example[4].

By applying mindfulness meditation regularly, you teach your brain to stay with your thoughts on a task and not get stuck in memories or tomorrow’s worries.

In addition, you can also do many other exercises to train your brain so that your brain becomes a tool to create your ideal life and not get stuck in mistakes you once made. This is useful for both your personal and business life.
