“This is the day the Lord has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalm 118:24
God has designed us in a beautifully complex way. Every aspect of our being is important and interdependent. A healthy mind is needed for a healthy being!
When we are free of depression, anxiety, excessive stress and worry, addictions, and other psychological problems, we are more able to live our lives to the fullest.
Today, we share two more ways that you can increase your mental fitness:
- Play Games: Crossword puzzles, Sudoku, and other games (even Candy Crush) that test reasoning and other portions of your brain are fun ways to keep your mind sharp. Any kind of game that employs the use of logic, reasoning, or trivia are great ways to build up your brain muscle.
2. Read More: Reading is great for your brain. Even as you’re reading this sentence, your brain is processing each word, recalling the meaning instantly. Beyond the mechanics, reading helps you visualize the subject you’re reading about, imagine what voices sound like in dialogue, and more. It’s also a great relaxation technique as well.
Try to incorporate one or both of these activities in your day. As you work towards developing mental fitness, you will reap the benefits of your investment.
Mental health strengthens our ability to make good life choices, maintain physical health and well-being and discover and grow toward our potential.
All around, our mental health helps to improve the quality of life. So…. It’s time to work those brain muscles!
To your mental dexterity!
