just a physical exercise is essential for a strong body, mental exercise is equally essential for a sharp and agile mind. Have you notice that a children have far superior brain power than an adult does, children have playful minds. A playful mind exhibits superior memory power. Engage in some of the activities that require your mind to remain active and playful.

I agree,mental exercise is very important! I think it's one way to increase your thinking skills, in terms of analysis, synthesis, logical thinking, etc.! What may be done to exercise our brains? (1)Puzzles - depending on your interests, there are plenty. Personally, I do sudoku, logic problems. (2)Games and toys - lately, I tried to solve the rubik's cube. I also bought chain puzzles, I am not the only one enjoying it, my kids also, my officemates and my students. (3) other ways: I read somewhere that changing your routines also help you think more. For example, if you use your right hand to make text messages, use your left at times, or in going home, use another route. In this manner you do not act on routine but it takes a little thinking about doing things.
