I came across an interesting podcast this morning, while browsing the iTunes store (as you do, when you should be working on something else). It’s called “Brain Ready”, and they offer a series of (free) quick audio exercises, designed to keep your brain active, and prevent (or even reverse) the deterioration of your mental facilities as you age.
Quite apart from the obvious long-term benefits (given that most of the women in my family live into their nineties and beyond, I need to look after myself), it did make me feel much more awake and alert for the next few hours.
So here’s the challenge I’m setting myself. Do one brain-training podcast every morning for the next couple of weeks, and see what (if anything) it does to my creativity.
Of course, Easter is almost here, so fitting it in around my holidays will be interesting …
