Why National Train Your Brain Day?
When we ask or try to find out the answer to how much of our brain we actually have used, it can be really disappointing. It is majorly because our regular or routine activities cannot keep our mind sharp. It is pretty thwarting as to how little effort we take for our mental health when we can indulge in so many experiences that will fill the room with experience and knowledge. This day is an inspiration to expand and exercise our brain so that we can use it up to its full potential and capacity, and unlike other days this day is a creation for us to focus on ourselves (particularly) so that we remind ourselves of the impact we can have over us and other by following the right manners. This day can be a day we specifically dedicate to our cognitive skills because if we’re doing the same thing every day, we’re probably not solving too many problems. A human brain is a gift that is not cherished and used up to its full potential. The brain gets bored. You’d get bored, too, if you watched the same episode of the same TV show every day.
This day can be celebrated either solo or in groups too. The purpose of the day is to improve our thinking power since exercising our brain is as important as any other physical exercise.
