Exercises for Training the Whole Brain

Think your brain as a muscle for a second, even if it’s not a muscle. You can train your
brain as well as your other muscles. But how do you even start doing that?

In order to train a muscle you need to know appropriate exercises based on the
functionalities and limitations of that muscle. In the case of a brain, it is very difficult to
assess what it can or can’t do, so the ‘whole’ part in the title is a little bit flawed in that
sense, but bear with me and you will have a nice brain exercise.

Without losing any more time, we start our brain workout by listing an exercise-pair that
consists of one functionality and one limitation(?) of a brain. Try to work that out and
continue with the other pairs. Have fun!
