When it comes to the health of our brains, learning is our single best solution. Our brains tend to create shortcuts on the basis of our habits and routines – while these are great for our productivity, they don’t really stimulate our brains to develop. Learning new skills, we rewire our brains and build stronger memory, increase our analytical abilities, power our decision making capacity and stimulate our creativity. Different skills relate to various areas of our brain which are responsible for concentration, balance, motor control, speech or vision – that’s why it’s important to train all of them equally. Sports help to increase the blood flow to your brain, making you more alert and happy. Playing a musical instrument impacts learning, creativity and cognition. Learning a new language helps in developing problem-solving skills. The Why Your Brain Loves Learning Infographic shows how learning new skills is essential to the health of our brains, helping us to live longer and healthier lives.
