Giving your brain new experiences will keep it healthier.

让你的大脑感受新体验会让它更为健康。

 

Try these brain exercises during your morning routine or your down time and see if you feel the difference.

在早起洗漱晨练等活动期间或不工作的时候试试这些大脑锻炼方法,看看是否会有什么效果。

01

Brush teeth with your non-dominant hand.

用非惯用手来刷牙。

 

Research has shown that using the opposite side of your brain (as in this exercise) can result in a rapid and substantial expansion of in the parts of the cortex that control and process tactile information from the hand.

研究显示,使用大脑对侧(就像这里的锻炼方法一样)可使控制处理手部触觉信息的大脑皮层区域出现快速的实质性扩展。

02

Shower with your eyes closed.

洗澡的时候闭上眼。

 

Your hands will probably notice varied textures of your own body you don t "see," and will send messages back to your brain.

你的手将可能会感受到自己身体上那些眼睛所“看不到”的纹理质感,然后这些信息将会传递回你的大脑。

03

Switch around your morning activities.

时常改换早晨的活动。

 

Brain imaging studies show that novel tasks exercise large areas of the cortex, indicating increased levels of brain activity in several distinct areas.

脑成像研究显示,新异的工作任务会锻炼大脑皮层的很大面积区域,一些不同区域的脑部活动水平出现增长。

This activity declines when the task becomes routine and automatic.

当上述工作任务成为例行的机械式日常时,这种大脑活动也会出现衰减。

04

Switch seats at the table.

改变餐桌边的座位。

 

In most families, everyone has his or her "own" seat, but your brain benefits from new experiences.

在大多数家庭里,每个人都有自己“独有”的座位,但你的大脑会从新体验中受益的。

05

Play with spare change.

摆弄零钱。

 

Because our brains regularly rely on visual cues to distinguish between objects, using touch to identify subtly different things increases activation in cortical areas that process tactile information and leads to stronger synapses.

大脑通常会以来视觉线索来辨别物品,使用触摸来识别那些细微的不同之处会让处理触觉信息的大脑皮层区域更加具有活性,同时也会让神经键更为强韧。

06

 

Place a cup full of coins in your car s drink holder.

在车子的水杯槽里放上一杯子的硬币。

While at a stoplight, try to determine the denominations by feel alone.

在等红绿灯的时候,仅靠感觉来确定硬币面额。

You can also put coins in your pocket, and identify them when you stop at a corner.

你也可以把硬币放在口袋里,在拐角处停留的时候用上述方法来识别硬币。

07

Scan at the supermarket.

在超市里仔细观察。

 

Stop in any aisle and look at the shelves, top to bottom.

在走道中停下,从上到下观察货架。

If there s something you ve never seen before, pick it up, read the ingredients and think about it.

如果有什么东西你之前从未见过,拿起来看看它的成份,并对此展开思考。

You don t have to buy it to benefit; you ve broken your routine and experienced something new.

用不着为此去买下来它,你已经打破了习惯性枷锁,体会到了新的东西。

08

Read differently.

用不同的方式阅读。

 

When we read aloud or listen to reading, we use very different brain circuits than when we read silently to ourselves.

当我们大声朗读或倾听朗读时,所使用的大脑回路与自己默读时的回路是很不相同的。

Read aloud with your partner or a friend, alternating roles of reader and listener.

与同伴或朋友一起大声朗读,并进行朗读与倾听的角色替换。

It may be slow to get through a book, but as a bonus you ll spend quality time together.

这样做可能会导致读书进度变慢,但作为回报你们会共同获得这段优质时间。

试试也无妨~
