Whenever we exercise a certain cognitive skill, we become better at it. But we only become better at the particular exercise, and there is hardly, if any, spill over effect to other, even closely related tasks and cognitive skills. So if you do Sudoku, you become better at Sudoku, and it won’t help you with crossword puzzles or playing chess. If you exercise remembering numbers, you won’t become better at remembering letters, or names.
So, no, you won’t become smarter, or get a better IQ by playing certain brain games on your computer. It’s just not gonna happen.
Keeping that in mind, teaching about the brain, for me, has always been slightly frustrating, because of this. Because I wasn’t able to help people with their number one request: ‘How do I improve my brain?’
Now last year, I got something of a breakthrough. I got fascinated by Neuroplasticity. This ability we all have to rewire our brain, regardless of age, is a true blessing. Wherever we are now in our life, we can change it, we can turn it into something we do desire. We can adapt into a better version of ourselves.
But my research has led me further. Turns out, neuroplasticity is only half of the story. Say hello to Neurogenesis. Sure, I knew already that, regardless of age, our brain constantly creates new brain cells. Nothing shocking about that. But what I didn’t know is the huge impact of its rate. I mean, high brain cell creation leads to optimistic, confident, high-energy individuals, whilst a low brain cell creation is linked to depression, anxiety and low energy. And guess what: We are largely in control when it comes to neurogenesis. Depending on what we do, we can create up to five times more new brain cells.
At the Brain Academy, our job is to turn these kind of theoretical insights into concrete programs which will impact people’s life.
And regarding neurogenesis, that’s exactly what we did. We developed this 30 days Brain Challenge’ to help you boost your neurogenesis rate. Every single day, during 30 days, you will get a challenge to complete within the next 24 hours. At the end of the 30 days, the combination of all these challenges and the insights you will have gained, will put you in the driver seat, in pole position, to live your life on a new level. One where you are in control, where you are sharp and strong, filled with energy and lust for life.
That’s what this Brain Challenge will do for you.
If that sounds like something you're interested in, we’ve created a free preview, where you can try out the program for a couple of days.
Just follow the link below and enter the program.
