Improve The Function Of Your Brain

Brain exercises are an important way to maintain and improve brain function. Brain Gym are physical exercises that stimulate different areas of the brain and help the brain to be function calmly. When the brain is calm it is much more effective in its ability to do things with ease.

 

Brain exercises are really effective with children and their learning. They are also equally effective in adults and in maintaining their brain health and brain activity. If we do not use our brains then we will lose its ability to do things. Our brain are amazing as they can be changed and taught how to do things. It just takes practice and repetition.

Hook-ups – Are a relaxing and energizing exercise. They are great for emotional calm and self-esteem. Especially good for improving attentiveness as it encourages the brain to be calm and focused.

This brain exercise is broken down in 2 parts. The first part is cross your hand and feet over (as shown in diagram) and place your tongue on the roof of your mouth. Hold this position for 30-40 seconds (remembering to breathe). The second part is to place your feet flat on the floor with your finger tips touching and your tongue on the bottom of your mouth (as shown in diagram). Hold this position for 30-40 seconds (remembering to breathe).

Give them a try on yourself and your children. These are best done in the morning each day before work or school begins. They are a great way to wake up the brain!
