The machinery called human body is quite a complex one which, even though made up of several smaller parts, is capable of only working as a whole. Thus the good functioning of all its ensembles determines the good working of the whole, while the damaging of only one piece can ruin the way in which the entire body is functioning. One of the most important pieces of the puzzle named human body is the brain. It controls each activity the human body makes throughout the day and helps the individual perceive and understand the outside world.
Because of its great importance, keeping the brain in good shape has to be one of the individual’s top priorities. Even though it may seem that the humans cannot exercise any kind of action on their brain, the truth is quite different: humans have the power to increase and decrease their intelligence through special training. And when we are talking about special training we do not necessary refer to some scientific program of increasing the IQ, but rather about common things which can be changed in our daily life in order to make the brain function properly and expand its capacities.
One of the easiest ways of increasing one’s intellectual abilities is to start making physical exercises on a regular basis. This type of exercises will not only increase the muscular mass and give further resistance to the body, but it will also positively influence the way in which the brain works. No more than 20 or 30 minutes of physical movement each and every day will ensure that the brain receives the amount of oxygen it needs in order to function properly, will free the individual of the stress accumulated during the day and will keep anxiety and depression to minimum values, thus allowing the rain to focus on more important things, such as problem solving and accumulation of new information.
