Get Your Brain in Full Gear

Cyclists ride in critical mass across a sunlit bridge at dawn.

How can you engage 100% of your brain?

Forget the myth that you use only 10% – each day, most humans use nearly 100% of their brain.

SCIENCE SAYS:

Before neuroimaging, many assumed uncharted brain regions, like the frontal lobe, were simply inactive – but today's technology shows this expansive region is a trainable (retrainable) powerhouse for higher-order functions.

WAYS TO BEGIN:

  • Explore new activities. Challenges help strengthen neural pathways and build cognitive reserve.
  • Prioritize what is most important. Give full attention to the priority and step back from distractions or drama.
  • Awaken your sense of play. Connect with others to engage in puzzles, games, art and share creative ideas.
  • Be strategic about memory practices. Exercise habits to support your working memory, like creating pneumonic devices or visual cues as reminders of important details.
