$74.33

Mental Workout Exercises to Improve Concentration, Thinking Skills, Memory and Problem Solving for teens and adults. When people think about health, they tend to focus on the physical body and its many components and target specific areas for improvement and maintenance. It is also important to focus on the brain, and treat it like a muscle. Just as the muscles in our body respond to being exercised, our minds will do likewise if challenged. The best way to do this is by challenging yourself to think in ways that are not part of your daily routine. Working out your mind will not only allow you to have a better memory and retain cognitive functioning later in life, but will also enable you to think creatively make good decisions quickly and problem-solve more effectively. All ages and populations can derive short- and long-term benefits from being challenged, actively participating with others, trying new things and exploring their imaginative and creative sides. Teens and adults can develop new ways of thinking and learning. This may provide them with a depth of understanding into their own thinking process as well as how others think. The ripple effects of such exercise can be seen in the classroom as well as in other aspects of their lives, all while having fun in the process! Each activity is reproducible (CD-Rom for easy printing is included), with step-by-step instructions for leading the activity, processing suggestions, and tips to adjust the activities to the functioning level of the participants. Activities are rated easy, moderate or difficult. The activities in this book are designed to be user-friendly and applicable to a variety of settings. All you need is a group of people that are willing to try something new, be creative and have some fun. Group sizes can vary depending on the situation. More clinical settings, such as in hospitals, older-adult care and human service facilities will do well with groups of 8-12 people, while schools and private settings can accommodate over 20 participants for most activities. Groups that meet on a weekly basis will be able to work on a different exercise every week of the year.
