Train your Brain for a Brainy Gain!

Yes, you got it right, you can train it. As you do any heart-pumping activity, your body, especially muscles, demands an increasing amount of oxygen as well as nutrients. Likewise, our brain needs a constant stimulation and a balanced diet for a proper functioning.

As our physical fitness can be improved by adapting various fitness regimes, the brain can be benefited by a number of mental activities that can help in sharpening our problem-solving skills as well as in improving our memory, concentration power and creative abilities.
