Staying relevant

Pin It

Our minds are like muscles. They need exercise, change, and challenges to grow and stay relevant.

We all know this to be true yet how many of us actually give ourselves permission to change? We get our news from the same sources, trust some opinions but not others, stay with the tried and true.

Daily routines and rituals serve us well because they are safe.

Yet, their safety is a trap that lulls us into apathy.

Being a serious creature of habit requires me to find alternative solutions for brain stimulation. It doesn’t work for me to just up and change that which works.

What to do?

For me, it’s taking on new projects and new interests: building a music server, designing a new A/D converter for the recording studio, writing a new book. A new project builds atop my daily routine. Thus, I can keep my tried and true habits while stimulating my little grey cells.

This may or may not work for you. Each of us has different needs.

If you are finding ways of achieving constant stimulation that’s great. If not, what can you change in your life to get some brain exercise?

Like anything in life, it takes effort to stay healthy.

There’s not much more precious than our physical and mental health.
