- Learn a new language – your brain loves a challenge and so the neurons will fire more frequently.
- Do a puzzle – the brain loves to solve problems.
- Walk outside – your brain gets bored with four walls a floor and a ceiling. Being outside actually excites the brain for new sights, sounds, and smells.
- Dance – even if you have two left feet your brain will love you for it.
- Sing or hum – you don’t have to be the next greatest artist but singing causes the brain and the lungs to be challenged and who doesn’t love a challenge!
