Science has visual evidence of this brain cell growth process. Thanks to MRI technology, we can see learning centers in the human brain light up and witness the birth of neural pathways when we try something new. These signs of activity and growth are visible even in the elderly. Although you may learn new things more slowly as you get older, your capacity is largely unchanged. What's really exciting is that new experiences needn't be dramatic or life changing to have these effects. Everyday novelty--even seemingly inconsequential acts--can benefit your brain and literally expand your mind. So let's get started. Here are some simple ways to break routine habits that may be prematurely aging your brain. Once you understand the logic involved, you'll be able to create other little ways of introducing more novelty into your life. And just like with physical exercise, the more you can do, the more you'll benefit. Put a new spin on old routines:



Directions:
Directions:
Read a book you would not normally read.
Brush your teeth using the opposite hand.
Reverse your usual walking, running, or biking route.
Trade in your favorite game.
If you love crosswords, do Sudoku or learn to play one of the dozens of brain-training games on your computer.
Eat at an ethnic restaurant.
Rearrange your furniture.
Start planning to visit a new place this weekend, even if it's just in the next county.
Grab that recipe you clipped and head to a different grocery store to shop for ingredients.


If you do even a few of these brain cell growth things in a single day, you'll be amazed at how all this newfound knowledge enriches your life.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
I put this in because I need desperately to grow new cells. I know we are scared of memory problems watching Mom and Dad, so we need to know how to stop the process. Change things in your life on a regular basis so you don't have the same problem of watching the brain cells go bye-bye.
