Part of Training Your Brain For Dummies Cheat Sheet (UK Edition)

Everyone has days when they don’t feel on top form. The question is, does this happen to you all the time? Here are some questions that you can ask yourself as a kind of mini-check for how well your brain is working:

  • Do you find yourself frequently distracted when you’re doing something important?

  • Do you always struggle to follow conversations?

  • Do you often lose your train of thought and end up forgetting what you wanted to say?

  • Do you always find it hard to remember information that people tell you, like phone numbers or directions?

  • Do you constantly have trouble mentally juggling different tasks during the day?

If you answered ‘yes’ to more than one of these questions, then training your brain is all the more important. Science shows that the brain can change and adapt at any age. So it’s never too early or too late to start developing good habits to train your brain. By training your brain, you can be more mentally alert, cope better with daily stresses, and even enjoy life more!
