Nurture your Intellectual Dimension by actively engaging that grey matter every day. Get those synapses firing and create stronger nerve connections - and feel the powerful improvements in all your dimensions.
So what is Grey Matter anyway? Simply put it is where learning, data acquisition, is done. It is the main frame processor of what we eventually define as our environment, our knowledge and our truths.
"Grey matter contains most of the brain's neuronal cell bodies. The grey matter includes regions of the brain involved in muscle control, and sensory perception such as seeing and hearing, memory, emotions, speech, decision making, and self-control." - Wikipedia
This dimension of our lives is where our cerebral matter really matters! Explore ideas that can help you to stimulate, nurture and nourish your brain - the birthplace of all our ideas. Practicing mind engaging activities daily could improve the Neuroplasticity of your brain - no matter what your age, studies have shown that improvement, however slight, is indeed possible beyond childhood.
"The adult brain is not entirely "hard-wired" with fixed neuronal circuits. There are many instances of cortical and subcortical rewiring of neuronal circuits in response to training as well as in response to injury. There is solid evidence that neurogenesis (birth of brain cells) occurs in the adult, mammalian brain—and such changes can persist well into old age."
Daily practice of what could be called Brain Training Activities could help to improve neuroplasticity as well as cognitive abilities like memory or knowledge acquisition.
"Brain training ... is a program of regular activities purported to maintain or improve one's cognitive abilities. The phrase “cognitive ability” usually refers to components of fluid intelligence such as executive function and working memory. Cognitive training reflects a hypothesis that cognitive abilities can be maintained or improved by exercising the brain, analogous to the way physical fitness is improved by exercising the body." - Wikipedia
Balance this dimension by focusing on both your professional and personal intellectual development, exercise your brain like you exercise your body. Staying mentally sharp helps to keep your ideas (and your life) fresh and exciting.
